For centuries people have been drinking coffee. It’s a global phenomenon. In its simplicity in its raw state to its ubiquity in almost every culture, coffee has a huge range of forms throughout the world. Caffeine was first found in Ethiopia in the 17th Century and has spread around the globe since then. From the simple Italian espresso shot to traditional Turkish coffee ceremonies, coffee culture is huge and diverse. In fact, the first coffee shop was opened in Istanbul, Turkey and came to Europe not long after.

Coffee is roasted, brewed, and drunk in a baffling variety of ways worldwide. Whether you like it bitter or sweet, there are many reasons why coffee is the world’s favorite drink. For many it’s a much-needed pick-me-up every morning, for others it’s a satisfying drink in the late evenings.

The guys over at Espresso Works have created this infographic that looks at how coffee is engrained in the global cultures.  We love this infographic, and we think about creating our own, from a slightly different angle.Coffee Around the World Infographic

My name is Dorian and I am a former barista. I consume coffee in any form, as a beverage, in savory recipes and desserts. My favorite caffeinated beverage is the espresso. I love to share my coffee brewing knowledge and my geeky coffee research. This blog is one of the places I write about coffee. More about Dorian...
