Coffee is probably one of the most popular brewed drinks among surfers. Because it wakes us up for early dawn patrols, and because it warms us up in those perfect winter morning swells.
Although it is cultivated in over 70 countries, the history of coffee started, at least, in the middle of the 15th century, somewhere in Yemen, in Western Asia. In less than two centuries, coffee beans spread through the Middle East, northern Africa, and Europe.
There are three main varieties of coffee: the Arabica, Robusta, and the blended types. Roughly 70 percent of the world’s coffee production is Arabica.
