Coffee Description Update
Coffee is derived from coffee plant beans and it is one of the most popular beverages in the world. The way that coffee is brewed has been found to be important to its health effects. Several small evergreen bushes that are part of the genus Coffee species produce the coffee berry, also known as the coffee bean. Coffee canephora and C. Arabica are the two main commercially cultivated species of coffee. Within Latin America, eastern Africa, Arabia, and Asia, Arabica coffee beans are cultivated and flavor, aroma, body, and acidity are usually the distinguishing factors found within beans from different countries. Overwhelmingly, people drink coffee, but it can be ground into a paste and applied to other foods. It can be used as a form of treatment for diseases, although medical advice should be sought on its uses. It can also be used to flavour sweets, and even be used as an aromatic ornament to make a room smell fresh and inviting. This is used by real estate agents to provide a generally pleasant aroma of coffee beans set out of a table to improve chances of a favourable opinion of a property.
