Coffee facts @ Reward Me

Brain Juice

After oil, coffee is the most traded commodity in the world. Few things taste sweeter than a well-brewed cup of coffee. With just a sip, the world is easier to confront.

  1. Coffee is the world’ s most popular drink – 400 billion cups are consumed worldwide each year.
  2. It takes approximately 140 litres of water to grow the coffee beans needed to produce one cup of coffee!
  3. In ancient Turkey, a woman was, by law, entitled to divorce her husband if he did not provide her with coffee.
  4. A cappuccino was so named because its signature peak of foam resembles the cowl (large, folded hood) of a Capuchin friar’ s habit.
  5. Not all coffee is created equal. Look for Fairtrade-certified (which basically means that the working, living and trading conditions of those who farm the beans are quite fine).
  6. Caffeine increases the brain’ s ability to recognise words relating to positive thoughts, but doesn’ t provide the same boost for words with negative associations. So, coffee really does make you happier.
  7. The average working person spends 24 minutes each day making or offering hot beverages. Over an average lifetime, that’ s 190 days of lost productivity.
  8. A “ quick” coffee break is all it should be! Coffee is best drunk immediately after it is brewed. The unique taste is a reaction of over 900 flavour compounds, which cease to react with water after 15 minutes.
  9. The mere smell of coffee can activate genes in the brain that help to decrease the impact of sleep deprivation.
  10. Vincent van Gogh, a well-known coffee aficionado, believing it enhanced his creativity, famously said: “ I have tried to express the idea that the café is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad or commit a crime."
