Coffee. The Ambrosia of Mortals.

We would like to thank our generous sponsors for making this article possible.

Coffee has been loved by so many, but why? It has a bitter taste, that even most of the animals in the wild avoid. You would think that we should take it as a warning sign from nature to avoid it. But why do we drink it? 

Each person will have different opinion on why they drink coffee. It could be a habit that is acquired through taste. Some even say that they could not start their day without it. Most of the time, it is just the caffeine that is talking, to keep themselves awake. Whether to keep themselves from sleeping during work or increase their focus we love this bitter taste (or sweet if you add sugar and milk).

Trying out different methods and even coffee beans is like having an adventure through the city of Paris to taste all the Michelin star restaurants. Coffee is beloved by many not just because of the taste, but also of the different ways to savor it.

It has been evolving throughout history. And it’s not just the coffee beans where they come from, but also the preparation and engineering on how they are processed into the drink we love.
