5 things you never knew about coffee


Here at UKVending we love everything about coffee and we also love to share some of the strange and bizarre stuff we’ve found out about coffee over the years. So here are 5 things you never knew about your favourite drink, coffee.

Drinking coffee can, under the right conditions, reduce the effects of Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and some symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

Blame our love affair with coffee on dancing goats. Shepherds in ancient times discovered the effects eating coffee beans had on their flocks of goats and thought they’d give drinking the stuff a go too.

It is rare to find an American who doesn’t drink coffee. The latest statistics show that four out of every five American regularly drinks coffee to start their day.

English women in the 17th Century were forbidden from drinking coffee in public. They were also not allowed to sample drinking chocolate.

It wasn’t the only time that coffee came close to being banned. In the 16th Century Muslim and Christian leaders were, unusually, in agreement that coffee should be banned. The ban was extremely hard to enforce however.
