I was reading on the discovery of our heritages on which the modern world depends so much.  I came across some incredibly interesting feedbacks on the trail of coffee, and thought of sharing them along with this wonderful article.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Someone by the name 'Nosheen' writes on Aug.2005:

Most American and Europeans, think that Muslim food and cuisine are confined to Curry, Biryani, Kebabs, Chapati and Pitta and sweets such as Kulfi and Baklawa. They are not aware of the numerous other foods and drinks, supposedly western, which are of Muslim origins. An example of these is coffee, which has invaded every household's breakfast.

The earliest cup of coffee was made in Yemen by a group of Sufis, who boiled the beans and drunk it to help them stay awake all night in prayers and remembrance of God (Allah) as early as 9th century. A group of their students took it to Cairo using it in their study circles at the al-Azhar university. From there the habit of drinking coffee took off in most Middle Eastern countries and by 13th century it reached Turkey.

Europe did not taste coffee until the 16th century first landing at Italy imported by Venetian merchants, who traded with Muslims in North Africa, Egypt and the East. The merchants first introduce the drink as a luxurious beverage destined for Venetian rich, charging them a considerable amount of money. This is how coffee first appeared in 1570 in Venetian ports quickly spreading to Venetian markets.

Yasmin Khan on Jan. 2006:

I'd also would like to add that the word -Mocha- coffee is from the port of Mocha (Makha) in Yemen west coast, when Yemen used to be no.1 world cofee exporter sadly before they moved to Qat.

Mohammad Saif on Feb. 2006:

That is a slightly incorrect, as coffee orginated in Ethiopia, hundereds of years before it was introduced into arab society. The arab traders brought coffee back to there homeland and began to cultivate the bean.

Read other comments too, including those from non-Muslims who are as usual desperately trying to discredit the blatant fact that coffee was a Muslim invention.
