where it's coffee came from !!

The origin of the word (coffee)
The word "coffee" entered the English language in 1582 by the Dutch designation "koffie" which was borrowed from the "Ottoman Turkish"( kahve), which in turn borrowed from the Arabic name "coffee". The Arabic word was originally referring to a type of wine that the Arabic lexicons derived from the verb ( Qaha), “not hunger”, referring to the reputation of the drink in filling the appetite.


Coffee dates back to the tenth century and possibly earlier, according to a number of reports and legends related to its first use. The original home of coffee is believed to be Ethiopia. The earliest proven evidence of coffee drinking or knowledge of the coffee tree is from the fifteenth century in Sufi monasteries in Yemen. By the sixteenth century, it had reached the rest of the Middle East, southern India (Surj), Persia, Turkey, the Horn of Africa and North Africa. Then (coffee) spread to the Balkans, Italy and the rest of Europe to Southeast Asia and then to America
