May your coffee be stronger than your daughters Attitude Shirt
A while later, a Frenchman Gabriel de Clieu convinced the gardener of the King’s garden to give him a clipping of this plant, which he transported over to a French territory in the Caribbean. In Gabriel’s own words we find an account which tells us that water was rationed for a period of this trip and he shared his portion with his precious cargo.He also tells how he had to thwart at least one attempt to sabotage the plant. The coffee tree thrived in the Caribbean, so much so that It is from this clipping that most of the coffee plants found in South America, Central America, and Mexico originate.Coffee and The AmericaCoffee has had a huge effect on the countries of the Americas and, to this day, is considered one of the most important crops in the region. It is also that, worldwide, roughly 600 million people rely on the coffee industry for their survival; that’s around 10% of the worlds population. But we digress.The production of coffee in the Americas relied heavily upon the work of African slaves and conquered native peoples. It is this use of slave labor that is attributed to France’s success in the Caribbean and coffee’s abundance through the whole tropical region of the Americas.

Brazil is now the world’s top coffee producing country, by a substantial margin. However coffee wasn’t planted in Brazil until the early 1700’s, and, although a popular plant, it really didn’t gain traction until after Brazil achieved its independence in the early 1800.Then, the new rulers of Brazil cleared huge swaths of land for the cultivation of coffee. It is because of this that, by 1852, Brazil became the largest producer of coffee in the world. A title it has held since then.In 1774, and resulting from the events of the Boston Tea Party in 1773, John Adams, one of the founding fathers of the USA, said that tea should be “universally renounced” and many Americans turned to drinking coffee, agreeing that drinking tea was now very unpatriotic.Coffee and The Rest of The WorldCoffee was introduced to large parts of Asia by the Dutch and they led exportation and cultivation there in India, Indonesia and Japan. Notably, it was a Spanish Monk who took coffee to to the Philippines where coffee cultivation and exportation thrived until a bout of coffee rust, coupled with an insect infestation, destroyed many of its its crops in the late 1880’s.
