What is a rich dark liquid that flows across the world and greases the wheels of our economies and it is known as one of the most traded commodities? It’s not oil, but coffee. Yes, more than two billion cups of coffee are consumed daily with several individuals worldwide unable to function without it. As traditionally tea-drinking countries like Mauritius are seduced by coffee’s charms, it is clear why it is taking pole position as the world’s favorite drink.

Coffee’s story starts in the highlands of Ethiopia, the natural homeland of the delicate Coffea arabica plant. Although they are called “coffee beans”, the plant is not a legume, and the fruits of the coffee tree look more like cherries when they are first picked. The seeds inside are extracted and dried before the process of roasting turns them into the hard, nutty nodules we feed into our grinders.

The Oromo people from this region are thought to have been the first to have noticed the stimulating effects of these “beans”, and coffee still remains an important element of their traditional cuisine. Exactly how and when it spread beyond Ethiopia is still the subject of many legends, but the available historic records suggest that the Sufis of Yemen were the first truly devoted drinkers outside Africa in the Middle Ages – where it was intimately connected with their mystic rituals.

Coffee houses soon spread across the Middle East and the Ottoman Empire, where they caught the attention of Western traders, who took the beguiling drink back to their home countries in the 17th Century. Today, history is not only being repeated but continued right here in the beautiful island of Mauritius as Siebel Enterprises have dedicated themselves to bringing one of the best Coffee brand in Europe, Caffe Vergnano 1882, Italy right here to the Island and we are excited to announce that they are also the official sponsors of the Best Cafe 2021 category at the Mauritius Restaurant Awards 2021.
