(Unichristus 2020) Coffee’s story starts in the lush highlands of Ethiopia, the natural homeland of the delicate Coffea arabica plant

HOW THE WORLD CAME TO RUN ON COFFEE

Coffee was once a little-known delicacy used to aid religious rituals. But once it had begun its global expansion, it became an unstoppable force. It’s a rich dark liquid that flows across the world and greases the wheels of our economies. It’s one of the most traded commodities.

And there are fears that, with a seemingly irrepressible demand, we may one day run dry. More than two billion ‘cups of joe’ are drunk every day, and for many, working life would feel impossible without it. As traditionally tea-drinking countries like China are seduced by coffee’s charms, it may soon become the world’s favorite drink.
