History behind the term 'Second Cup Of Coffee'


Discovery of Coffee

Coffee beans were first discovered in the Ethiopian highlands by a goat herder named Kaldi. According to legend, he noticed that his goats became energetic and stayed awake all night after consuming the red cherries from a particular tree. Curious, Kaldi tried the cherries himself and experienced a similar burst of energy. This discovery of coffee laid the foundation for its future popularity.


First Known Coffee Shop

The world's first-known coffee shop, Kiva Han, opened in Istanbul, Turkey. This establishment quickly became a central hub for intellectual and social activities, attracting scholars, politicians, and artists. Coffeehouses became beloved social gathering places where people would engage in discussions, exchange ideas, and even play chess. This cultural phenomenon laid the groundwork for the concept of enjoying coffee in a social setting.


Introduction of Coffeehouses in England

The first coffeehouse in England, known as 'The Angel,' opened in Oxford. Coffeehouses soon became popular across the country, offering an alternative to the taverns and alehouses of the time. These establishments became focal points for academics, merchants, and other patrons who wished to engage in lively discussions and debates. The second cup of coffee started gaining prominence as people would often order multiple cups to prolong their conversations.


Industrial Revolution and Coffee Breaks

During the Industrial Revolution, coffee breaks emerged as a way for factory workers to rejuvenate and increase productivity. The practice of taking a short break, enjoying a second cup of coffee, and sharing conversation with colleagues became common. This concept spread across various industries and eventually became ingrained in the modern work culture.
