The morning ritual of most cultures on earth. 
 
Crackling coffee beans permeating the air with its eye opening aroma.

Inevitably, coffee made its way to the Vatican, where it was introduced to Pope Clement VIII. While many of his advisors clamored for the Pope to ban the controversial drink, he refused to do so before trying it himself.
 
The Pope was brought a steaming mug of java and he took a sip. He was immediately delighted, and according to legend, he declared, “This devil’s drink is delicious. We should cheat the devil by baptizing it.”
 

 

 

Baptism in coffee! Bless this holy drink..

Here's the history and rituals associated with preparing and drinking coffee. Its effect on the brain to its corrupted trading practices. It explains the spread of coffee around the world from its beginnings in Ethiopia to its popularity among the Muslim Turks. Then it spread to Europe where it combined with milk and sugar and became the social drink we all know and love today.

 

The Irresistible Bean 
 
The Irresistible Bean explores coffee's origins in Ethiopia and its triumphant spread over five Continents, sparking revolution, controversy, creativity, business and slavery along the way. The episode details the first coffeehouse traditions, which began on dirt floors and eventually developed into more refined Arabic home versions, and chronicles the popularity of the Venetian latte, which developed a reputation that is seen in the Western coffee-marketing 450 years later. The Irresistible Bean also examines coffee's role in historical events, including the French Revolution, the American Revolution and the Haitian slave rebellion.

This Is Actually Why Coffee Makes You Shit
 
Is that why the Starbucks bathroom line is always stupid long?
