Coffee has always been in between sobriety and subversion. From the 16th century, coffee houses in the Middle East where seen as a threat to religious life. In Europe, later, the temperance movement seized on coffee as a means of detoxing the working classes off alcohol.

The history of the actual bean though is straightforward. Coffee was first roasted in the Yemen in the 13th century, but may have been cultivated much earlier when the cherries (the fruit enclosing the beans) were fermented and drunk as wine.
