History - you must know how I came to be

According to the National Coffee Association, an Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi discovered my mighty potency. He fed them to his goats and they stayed vigilant all night (haha, obviously). Following that, cultivation took an enormous leap when it reached the Arabian peninsula. It had become the drink of conversation and relaxation, and that of a people's identity called "wine of Araby." With the spread of Islam, spread my deliciousness. When the Old World ventured on a capitalist quest to far-fetched islands and continents, 'coffee houses' became the hub of travelers. Herein they discussed about new lands and riches, as also the bitter, but peculiar taste of me. The modern world indulges with my variant forms: from lattes, frappes, mochas, and expressos, to salivating desserts like coffee cake, tiramisu, ice-cream etc. For the last part, you can thank King George III (hint: Boston Tea party).

Which one of me do you buy?

I come in two forms: Robusta and Arabica, and everything else you know of commercial coffee circulates around this fact. Here is your little cheat map:

USA & CARIBBEAN

Main feature

Mexico

Dark roasts

Puerto Rico

Fruity aroma

Hawaii

Grows in volcanic soils so super healthy!

C-AMERICA

W-Africa

Vietnam

Mild acidity, good balance


Preparing me - many people fail at this. Seriously dude, do better!

I am not originally brown and dark looking. I am green. You must take my green self and roast me to the desired level of bitterness, then grind me for awesomeness, and finally brew me for deliciousness.


NOW go and make yourself a cup of me!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
