History behind the term 'Coffey'


Origins of Coffee

Coffee dates back to the 1600s, originating in Ethiopia. The term 'coffey' is derived from the Arabic word 'qahwah', meaning wine. Coffee was considered a luxurious beverage, and its popularity spread across the Middle East and Europe. In the beginning, coffee beans were ground with a mortar and pestle.


Introduction of the Coffee Mill

In 1720, the coffee mill was invented by Nicholas Book, a British sailor. This invention revolutionized the coffee preparation process, as it simplified grinding and made it more efficient. The coffee mill allowed for a consistent grind, leading to better extraction of flavors.


The Birth of Coffey Still

In 1803, a remarkable invention named the 'Coffey Still' was patented by Irishman Aeneas Coffey. This innovative still, also known as the continuous still, revolutionized the distillation process by enabling continuous production of spirits such as whiskey. The Coffey Still improved efficiency and consistency in alcohol production.


Coffee in New York

In 1901, the New York Coffee Exchange, now known as the Coffee, Sugar, and Cocoa Exchange, was established in New York City. This exchange became a pivotal hub for coffee trading, setting prices and regulating the quality of coffee beans. Coffee's popularity continued to rise, leading to the establishment of dedicated coffee shops in the city.
