The New York Times, March 6, 1887, p. 12:
- First Discovery of Coffee.
- Playfair, in his History of Yemen (Bombay, 1859,) gives the names of many who have written in bygone days on that country and on coffee. He mentions its first use at Aden by a judge of that place who had seen it drank at Zeylá, on the African coast opposite Aden. This judge is said to have died A. H. 875 (A. D. 1470.) Probably some of the writers mentioned by Playfair read or wrote by mistake that coffee was first used in A. D. 875, and, perhaps, the same writer, misunderstanding the Arabic expression as to Zeylá being "on the non-Arabian coast," and thinking it meant Persia, and thence introduced into Arabia...
- There is an account in a Turkish work written two centuries ago, and printed at Contantinople in A. D. 1732, that places the first use of coffee as a beverage in about the year A. D. 1250. The ripe fruit was found growing wild in the mountains of Yemen by a community of dervishes banished thither. They found the fruit relieved their hunger, and supported them in their vigils. Their prior, Sheykh 'Umer, advised their stewing it, and its use became established.
- They dried a store of the fruit, and its use spread to other dervish communities, who perhaps sowed the seed wherever it would thrive throughout Africa and India.
- From Africa, two centuries later, its use was reimported to Arabia at Aden by the Judge above mentioned, who, in a season of scarcity of the dried fruit, tried the seed. Dervishes introduced the beverage at Mecca and Cairo; but, to this day, the people of Yemen use the dried pericarp only for their coffee, and export the seed to those who prefer it.
- The New York Times, February 4, 1896, p. 2:
- Coffee as a Beverage.
- The Retail Grocers Told of Its Discovery in Abyssinia and Its Spread Throughout the World.
- Cornelius Morrison, a coffee broker, read a paper on "Coffee" before the New-York Retail Grocers Union in its hall in East Fifty-Seventh Street last night.
- He said that coffee had been used as a beverage in Abyssinia from time immemorial, and had been brought thence to Arabia by wandering Arabs about the fifteenth century. From Arabia it was brought into Egypt and Constantinople.
- Leonhard Rauwolf was probably the first to make coffee known to Europe by the account of his travels published in 1573. The first coffee house established in Europe was in Constantinople in 1551, and the first one in London was opened in 1652. The first one in Marseilles was established in 1671, and there were several in Paris in 1672...
- For more than fifty years after its introduction into Europe, Arabia furnished the entire coffee supply of the world. Then the Hollanders in the second decade of the eighteenth century made their appearance in the markets of Europe with the product of Java. The culture then extended to the West Indies, and thence to South America. Brazil not only soon overtook Java, but continued to advance until at the present time more than one-half of the coffee consumed in the world comes from Brazil. Java now holds third place in the production, Venezuela and the United States of Colombia take second place...
