“Jasminum arabicum laurifolia”

Coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the whole world, second only to crude oil. Once harvested and milled, coffee journeys from its origin to its destination thousands of miles away.

This is not just a drink; this is magic, infusing itself into our psyche, stirring conflict and controversy. The historical journey of coffee is a breathtaking adventure spanning a thousand years, filled with death-defying escapes, international intrigue, and romance. From distant, tropical islands to the power centres of international trade, it has been banned, berated, hailed and championed, generating as much fear as enjoyment.
