Other than drinking ... 5 strangest information about coffee you've never heard of

There is nothing better than starting your day with a cup or two of your favorite coffee, as coffee has the magic effect of helping you to wake up and focus, especially in the afternoon when energy and activity begins to decline.

Other than drinking ... 5 strangest information about coffee you've never heard of

In this article, we will review strange information about coffee that most people are ignorant of:

1. The first webcam I used to watch a pot of coffee.

The first webcam to shoot video over the Internet was discovered in 1991.

In the beginning, Drs Quentin Stafford-Fraser and Paul Gardetsky of the University of Cambridge used a programmatic camera they invented to monitor their coffee pot in another room.

In this way, neither of them had to go by themselves to verify that the pot was still full and that no one had drunk from it, and once the cameras were connected to the Internet, the webcam, this coffee pot became very popular and was broadcasted widely via the Internet until 2001.

2. Coffee is actually a fruit.

Coffee may be referred to as a legume, but the truth of the matter is that coffee is a fruit. These brown beans that are eventually harvested and used in coffee making are the seeds of a red berries-like fruit that grows on trees.

3. Coffee was originally eaten and not drunk.

Given that coffee is originally a fruit, it is no wonder then that eating it is the basis for consuming it and not drinking it as we think, and some tribes in Africa used to mix animal fats with the coffee fruit that resembles berries to make a kind of paste that they roll and make balls of it for the tribe members to eat And they get energy.

4. The more coffee beans are roasted, the less caffeine they contain.

Although most people believe that the strong flavor is more available in very roasted dark coffee beans, as evidence that they contain a large amount of caffeine, the truth is that the more coffee beans are roasted, the percentage of caffeine in them.

5. The idea of ​​tipping was originally in a cafe.

We are all used to leaving a tip or tip for workers in the place where we eat or drink, but this was not a common habit before that.

It is believed that the origin of the word baksheesh goes back to a coffee shop in London during the seventeenth century. Before sitting, customers had to put money in a container with "To Insure Promptness" or TIPS for short, meaning to ensure speed and accuracy.

The British idea was that the more tips a customer tipped, the faster his coffee.
