History Of Coffee
Initially coffee is less accepted by some people. In 1511, due to the effects of stimulation, it was forbidden to be used by conservative and orthodox ministers in the Meccan religious assemblies. However, due to the popularity of this drink, the ban in 1524 was removed on the orders of Sultan Selim I of the Ottoman Empire. In Cairo, Egypt, a similar ban was passed in 1532, where coffee shops and coffee shops were closed.

From the Muslim world, coffee spread to Europe, where it became popular in the 17th century. The Dutch were the first to import large quantities of coffee into Europe, and at one time smuggled the seeds in 1690, as raw crops or seeds were not allowed out of the Arab region. This was followed by coffee planting in Java by the Dutch.

When coffee reaches the American colonies, the coffee is not as successful in Europe as it is considered less alcoholic. However, during the Revolutionary War, demand for coffee increased rapidly, until dealers had to open up reserves and dramatically raise prices; partly because of the declining supply of tea by UK traders. American interest in coffee grew in the early nineteenth century, after the war of 1812, where access to tea imports was temporarily disrupted, and also due to the rise in beverage-making technology, the position of coffee as a daily commodity in America increased.
