As a contender for being the most popular beverage in the world, its close to redundant when it comes to describing coffee. Virtually everyone has tasted the intense, aromatic flavour of the drink. It is a rich and unique taste sensation which has been expertly captured in Monin Coffee Syrup. This syrup is the perfect way of instantly adding the flavour of coffee to a plethora of drinks and desserts.
Although its exact beginnings are unknown, the discovery of coffee generally revolves around an Ethiopian legend. While it is known Ethiopia was home to ancient coffee forests, the famous story claims Kaldi, a goat herder, was the first person to realise the potential of coffee beans. According to the tale, Kaldis goats began feasting on the beans from a certain coffee tree. This snack left the goats full of energy, to the point they didnt want to sleep at night. This unusual change in their behaviour didnt go unnoticed and Kaldi reported it to his local monastery. The monasterys abbot then produced a drink with the beans, which kept him alert in a similar manner as the goats. He then noted this to the other monastery monks, word got out about the magic beans, and suddenly coffee was preparing to go on a global journey.
It took until the 17th century for coffee to land in Europe. The beverage, however, didnt receive universal acclaim on arrival and thats putting it mildly. The bitter invention of Satan was a tagline coffee received, and Venice clergymen condemned the drink when it arrived in the city. The controversy only started to die down when Pope Clement VIII intervened, downed a cup of coffee for himself, and supplied it with papal approval after being impressed by its taste.
The spread of coffee houses was rapid. By the end of the 17th century, there were more than 300 such establishments in London alone. The popularity of coffee also led to it becoming the breakfast drink of choice, where it would replace previous leading contenders beer and wine. It is, with hindsight, unsurprising how the switch from alcohol to coffee proved to be much more productive. As they started the day alert and full of energy, coffee drinkers saw their work quality greatly improve.
Americas first coffee house opened in 1689 in Boston, Massachusetts. A century later, after 1773s Boston Tea Party, drinking coffee became a symbol of patriotism in the United States. The beverage would continue to grow popularity-wise not just in the US, but across the globe. Coffee production began in Brazil during the 18th century, which was an important chapter in the story: the country is currently the largest grower of coffee beans on the planet.
The late 19th and 20th century saw the development of modern coffee. New Zealands David Strang invented instant coffee in 1889. A few decades later, in 1938, freeze dried coffee was developed. 1946 saw the modern espresso machine, while the pump driven version of the machine came out in 1960. Today, thanks in part to worldwide brands like Starbucks and Costa Coffee, coffee remains one of the worlds most popular drinks with plenty even placing it at the #1 spot.
Simple Irish Coffee with Whipped Cream
When you need to give your evening coffee a kick, look no further than its Irish variant. Due to the inclusion of whisky, the beverage is taken to the next level with warmth and depth standard coffee simply cannot supply. Plus thats not even taking into account the delicious coffee-infused whipped cream which is placed on top.
What you will need:

Do this for a number of seconds to guarantee it results in a light and fluffy whipped cream.
- Squirt the whipped cream on top of the Irish coffee. For a finishing touch, sprinkle a pinch of grated nutmeg onto the cream.
