Hello Angels,

Usually Turkish people prefer tea in the morning but I am a coffee person.  I literally can’t go out without drink coffee.

Italians usually prefer coffee in the morning. When you walk front of the bar/cafe, you can smell delicious coffee which is my favorite smell in Rome in the morning.

Coffee is one of the most popular and loved beverages in the world but despite its popularity most people don’t know anything about it.

In today’s post I would like to share everyting about coffee.

Coffee Beans

Coffee comes from two main types of coffee beans;


  • Used in instant coffee

  • Cheaper to cultivate

  • %50 to %60 more caffeine


  • Fine and aromatic

  • Expensive to cultivate

  • %50 to %60 less caffeine

Ethiopia is the origin of both beans but they each now grow in different countries, especially in parts of Asia, Latin and Central America. Robusta common in Vietnam also in Brazil and Arabica beans are primarily grown in Brazil.

There are many types of coffee. Even the size of coffee cups change. Different kinds of coffee refered to by different names depending on what other ingredients are used.

  • Long Black – Espresso poured over hot water

  • Americano – Espresso diluted with hot water

  • Espresso: Strong, thick black coffee

  • Ristretto: A short shot of espresso

Coffee Word

Coffee word is borrowed from the Italian work ‘caffe’ which comes from the ‘koffie’ (Dutch word) taken from the Ottoman Turkish ‘kahve’ which come from Arabic ‘qahwah’

Espresso has less caffeine than brewed coffee

Until today, I was thinking that espresso has more caffeine than brewed coffee because it is very strong but according to researches, opposite.
