Nothing jump starts a glorious day more than a hot cup of coffee. Its history goes back in the 15th century Ethiopia where the people of the period observed that the birds and animals that ingested the fruit had had an unusual vitality. They experimented with the beans; softened it, boiled it raw, and finally roasted and ground it. It has tons of health benefits, too many in fact to enumerate on this article and perhaps deserves an article of its own. Two facts in my humble opinion top the list of benefits in my book: it tastes so damn good and a day without coffee is a dreary endeavor.
