Hi there, coffee fans, I’m Java Joe, and as the resident tea and coffee snob of the office, I wanted to personally be the one to put a spin on your daily grind (get it?).
To start us off on the right foot, I want to share three fun facts about the world’s second most popular drink- just after water itself.
Legend has it that coffee was initially discovered in the 9th century by goat herders when they noticed the strange effects the coffee plant had on their herd, who appeared to ‘dance’ after eating it! Sometimes I too want to dance after my first cup of the day. ?
There are two main types of coffee- Arabica and Robusta. Arabica is the nuanced and varied mainstay most of us know and love, while Robusta is its bolder brother with a little more punch of caffeine. Robust!
On top of increased metabolic rate and energy levels, coffee is said to be linked with a longer life and reduced risk of heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and certain types of cancer! A couple of cups throughout the day is all it takes to see the benefits.
So there you have it, fresh facts straight from the mug of your friendly local coffee connoisseur.
Thanks a latte! (Cue eye-rolls, had to say it)
