Coffee cultivation first took place in Southern Arabia;[5] the earliest credible evidence of coffee-drinking appears in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi shrines of Yemen.[5] In the Horn of Africa and Yemen, coffee was used in local religious ceremonies. As these ceremonies conflicted with the beliefs of the Christian church, the Ethiopian Church banned the secular consumption of coffee until the reign of Emperor Menelik II.[6] The beverage was also banned in Ottoman Turkey during the 17th century for political reasons,[7] and was associated with rebellious political activities in Europe.

                                 MEASURING YOUR COFFEE

     The average cup of coffee contains six ounces of water. When measuring your coffee you should use 1 heaped tablespoon (6-8 grams) or 2 levelled tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. However, you may increase the amount of grounds if you desire a stronger brew.

                                     STORING YOUR COFFEE

      Proper storage of your coffee is important for the retention of strength, flavour and aroma. Coffee at all times should be away from air and moisture and should be stored in airtight glass containers with rubber seal in a cool, dry place.  The storing of coffee in plastic bags with one-way valves is also acceptable but you should ensure that the bags are resealed upon opening.  For whole bean storage it is suggested to use the freezer in sealable bags.
