INSTANT COFFEE

 

Powdered instant coffee was devised by Satori Kato but his idea was exploited by others. The practice of drinking coffee was invented earlier in Arabia where it was reported by ar-Razi, an Arab doctor in the 10th century. Coffe is produced in many countries. The coffee bush was found originally in Arabia and Ethiopia, but it is now grown in Brazil, Colombia, the Ivory Coast, Uganda, Angola, Kenya and Central America. The beans are ground and coffee is used in most countries as a breakfast drink. The first coffee house was opened in Paris in 1643 and was followed by others in Oxford (1650) and London (1652).

Coffee bushes produce berries which contain one or two beans. The berries are picked by hand and are put through a pulping machine. The beans which come out are placed in large tanks where the pulp ferments. The beans are then washed and spread out to dry in the hot sun. After two weeks the beans are put through a machine which removes the last of the skin. It is not until the coffee beans
have been roasted that they get their fragrant scent. After roasting the beans are ground between steel rollers. The best coffee is made from freshly roasted and ground beans.
