Sitting down to savour a steaming cup of rich, aromatic coffee has delighted people in every corner of the world for centuries. Coffee has inspired poetry, built trading empires and sustained agricultural economies from Costa Rica to Ethiopia.
The best news, of course, is that coffee drinking – and the café experience – is more popular than ever. Coffee houses have become the place to meet with friends and work associates or simply enjoy a few moments of solitude in a comfortable atmosphere.
