More than a great cup of coffee!
Arabica, as opposed to Robusta, is preferably a high altitude growing plant. It is indigenous to the elevated mountains of Ethiopia. From this native region in eastern Africa the coffee, by way of Arab nomads, then made its way over centuries to North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and on to other countries in the Middle East. Later, with trade routes widely used by oversea shipping channels, the coffee made its way to Italy hence the Latin name Coffea Arabica. From Italy coffee passed into the rest of Europe as well as east to the Asian Pacific.
