HISTORY OF COFFEE

The native origin of coffe has been in the Horn of Africa. History coffee plants originally were cultivated in the Ethiopian region of Kaffa, from which it derives its name. Between the ninth and fifteenth centuries it had reached the rest of the African continent and from there to the Islamic world. Legend has it that a shepherd from Abyssinia, noting the toning effect of this shrub on his own flock of goats, talked about it so well that his cultivation soon spread to neighboring Arabia. From then on, thanks to the ban on drinking alcohol, coffee immediately became known as “the wine of Islam”. During the expansion of the Ottoman empire, in 1400 the first “coffee houses” sprang up in islamic trading cities, such as Damascus, Cairo and Istanbul. Subsequently, the trade route between Venice and the East delivered to the Serenissima and then to the entire Italy the tasty drink. However, in Italy coffee was being used for medical purposes, at least initially. In fact, the first medical-botanical description is attributed to Prospero Alpini, venetian doctor in his book “De medicina Aegyptiorum” (1591). Exactly one hundred years later, the doctor Angelo Rambaldi, published “Ambrosia Arabica overo of the salutary drink of the Cafè” (1691), today the precious manuscript is kept in the Monastery of Camaldoli, and printed in anastatic copy by the Morphema Publishing House of Terni. Curiously, it was thanks to the monks and the Papacy that this drink, initially was considered diabolical because of Islamic origin. Coffee became “Christian” when Clement VIII (1536 – 1605), at the end of his pontificate, drank it for the first time, he was so enthusiastic that he gave it his blessing.

The first London coffeehouse opened in the middle of the seventeenth century, and by the 1715 there were already 3,000 of them. Coffee houses became fashionable places for intellectuals to debate . Although coffee had been known in France since the 1640s, it was François Procope who established the first café in Paris, the Café Procope, in 1660. In 1664, the Austrian coffee tradition was born when a Polish soldier opened the Blue Fiasco in Vienna, which was the country’s first Kaffeehause. The first German cafeteria was founded in Berlin that dates back to 1670. During seventeenth century the beverage was very popular and sprang up throughout Europe, Southeast Asia and, finally, in the Americas: the London coffee-house was opened in 1689 and was the first cafeteria in America. Caffè Florian is a coffee house situated in the Procuratie Nuove of Piazza San Marco, Venice.

It was established in 1720, and is a contender for the title of the oldest coffee house in continuous operation. In South America the diffusion of coffee dates back to the first half of the eighteenth century, when a French naval officer, in 1720, exported for the first time a coffee plant in French Martinique. In South America during the first half of the eighteenth century there was a rapid growth in coffee production. In 1720, according to his own diary, a French naval Officer transported coffee seeds to the French Caribbean colonies: Martinque. Since then, coffee cultivations extended into Brazil: the first coffee plantation started in 1727 which was dependent on slaves. The coffee plant was introduced into Jamaica in 1730 while Antico Caffé Greco opened its doors in 1760 in Rome, Italy. Coffee has a long history with another important date to remember, 1819. Frenchman Morize invented the first coffee maker. Despite the Gallic origin, it became popular as La Napoletana.It was during this period that coffee first arrived in Naples. The fashionable aristocratic beverage and luxury good now became very popular in the city. A new figure appeared in Naples: the “Caffettiere ambulante”, an ambulant coffee vendor who became part of Neapolitans’ daily routine, waking them up to sell coffee and milk with his loud voice, reminding people to celebrate the Saint of the day, San Gennaro.

 

POEMS ABOUT COFFEE

Italian café houses have always been an integral part for writers, poets and intellectuals. It was thanks to one of these cafeteria, in Ferrara, that in 1781 the Jesuit writer Lorenzo Barotti drew inspiration for a long ode to coffee with which he “honored” the wedding of Count Don Luigi Onesti. Below a brief excerpt from it:

 

Ne’ lunghi studi miei

Anch’io sovente,

abbrustolatol pria,

nell’acqua il cossi,

la qual bevuta

il sonno di repente

mi scacciava dagli occhi

umidi e grossi,

sicchè potea l’ore

notturne e lente,

come di letto allor

uscito io fossi,

stare a stillarmi in su

i libri il cervello

finchè il Sol

rimanea il dì novello . (*)

(*) Il caffè. Canti due, Parma, dalla Stamperia reale, 1781.
