Caption: Coffee tree. 1708 engraving of a coffee tree, Coffea arabica. Numbers refer to: 1. the tree; 2. dry fruit; 3. the fleshy exterior of the fruit; 4. coffee beans. The coffee tree is an evergreen shrub native to Ethiopia. The plant yields cherry- like fleshy red fruits, each containing a pair of coffee beans. These are dried, roasted, ground and infused with boiling water to make a refreshing and invigorating beverage. Coffee is first known to have been drunk in Arabia in the mid-15th century. It spread through the Middle East and reached Europe through Venice in 1616. 90% of the world's coffee comes from C. arabica; the rest is made from other African species in the same genus.
