Coffee. Cup of coffee surrounded by coffee beans. There is a grinder at upper left which processes the beans. Coffee is prepared from the roasted seeds of the coffee plant (Coffea sp.). It has been drunk around the Red Sea for over 1000 years. The drink contains caffeine, a stimulant chemical which increases heart rate and acts as a diuretic (increases urine production). Caffeine concentration is quite high in coffee, and several strong drinks in a short period may lead to caffeine intoxication. This manifests as insomnia, muscle twitches and rapid and rambling thought and speech.
