Coffee consumption is thought to have its origins dating back as far as the ninth century in the region that is now Ethiopia in East Africa, where wild coffee plants grew naturally.

The invigorating drink then spread to other regions across the Arabian Peninsula, such as Yemen and by the 15th century, 

coffee cultivation and preparation methods had developed to become an integral part of the culture.

Coffee trade expanded across the Middle East and made its way to Europe by the 17th century through trade routes across Italy.

It takes about three to four years for a coffee plant to bear its first harvest.
