IT’S YOUR FAVOURITE BEV­ER­AGE BUT YOU MIGHT HAVE NOT KNOWN THAT…

CLEO (Malaysia) - - SMART REPORT -

1. Cof­fee was dis­cov­ered by goats. Or rather Ethiopian goat herders who no­ticed their goats get­ting hy­per and su­per-frisky af­ter eat­ing cof­fee berries. 2. A Bel­gian man named Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton who lived in Gu­atemala in­vented in­stant cof­fee. 3. Cof­fee can kill! Drink­ing 100 cups of cof­fee is a cer­tain cause for death. 4. Cof­fee is the sec­ond most sold com­mod­ity in the world af­ter oil. 5. There are over 50 types of cof­fee in the world but only two, Ara­bica and Ro­busta, are com­monly used. 6. Cof­fee can be used to fuel a car. 7. Light roast cof­fee has more caf­feine than a dark roast be­cause the longer the bean is cooked, the more caf­feine it loses. 8. The word “cap­puc­cino” comes from the re­sem­blance of the drink to the cloth­ing of the Ca­puchin monks.
