Origin and Popularity

The earliest record of the use of coffee in history is in 15th century Southern Arabia, used in sufi shrines. Indian coffee was said to be first grown in Karnataka in 1600 AD when Baba Budan, a legendary sage went to Arabia for pilgrimage and brought back seven coffee beans. He planted them in his hermitage and it became quite popular over the years. By 19th century, coffee was being used worldwide through colonized countries of the British. Large coffee plantations were set up in India by the British and in the late 20th century, India became one of the leading exporters of coffee. Production : Coffee is made from berries grown on coffee plant. The berries are hand-picked and seeds are obtained by removing the flesh of the berries. After that, the seeds are fermented, washed and then dried to obtain green coffee. Green coffee is roasted at high temperature which changes the coffee bean physically and chemically. Finally, the excess caffeine is removed by a process called decaffeination.
