Coffee – The Social Drink Of Choice

 Introduction

Coffee beansCoffee is the drink of choice for so many people around the world. The value of coffee traded, measured by monetary volume, is second only after oil. This has evolved after coffee started its global popularity in the second half of the 19th century.

Coffee comes from the drupes or stone fruits of a plant of the family of Rubiaceae, sub-family Ixoroideae and genus Coffea, with more than hundred species. The taxonomic studies of the genus are still in full swing. Many species are for the time being only of scientific importance. The possibilities to hybridize for disease resistance and for obtaining natural hybrids without caffeine are some challenges.

There is also much confusion about species and varieties, as the taxonomic studies are still not completed.
