Coffee just isn’t the same as it has been in the past, it’s gone upscale. In the movies, we have heard the expression “cup of joe”. Now we overhear words like, Fair Trade, Barista, Tall, Grande, Vente, Macchiato, and so forth.
Coffee seeds are primarily grown in Latin America, Southeast Asia, Maldives, and Africa. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities.
Some people don’t drink coffee for the taste but for its side effects. Many drink coffee to jump start their day or pick up a sluggish afternoon.
