History: Coffee enjoys a long history. Documented as being used in Persian medicine in the 10th century, and it was drunk by Sufi monks in the 15th century to drive away fatigue and lethargy. From Persia, it spread throughout the known world. All the coffee now grown in the Americas originated from one tree in a Dutch botanical garden. The name Coffee may come from Caffa, an Abyssinian province.
