Coffee

So called "gourmet" coffee shops may be appearing on every corner, but few people are aware of coffee’s long history and the sometimes curious ways it has traveled the tropics. Colombian coffee growers have done a lot of advertising to create "Colombian coffee" as a brand, but in fact coffee isn't native to Columbia, or to any part of Central or South America. "Java" may be one of coffee’s nicknames, but it doesn't originate in Indonesia either. In fact, coffee originates around the horn of Africa, in what is today Ethiopia.
