5 things worth knowing about coffee!

By AlexS 08 May 2018

We all like a good cup of coffee but how much do you know about it? 

  1. Coffee grows on trees which can grow up to 30ft tall but are cultivated to be around 10ft for easy picking!
  2. Coffee is the second most traded commodity on earth
  3. The term 'Americano' comes from American GI's in World War 2 who would order espresso with water to dilute the strong flavour!
  4. In 1675, the King of England supposedly banned coffee houses, claiming they were places people met to conspire against him...
  5. Legend has it Ethiopian shepherds first noticed the effects of caffeine when they saw their goats appearing to become frisky and "dance" after eating coffee berries!

Needing a caffeine fix after that? 

Head to Maggie's for a cup of Grumpy Mule coffee, any way you like it!
