Transcript It's the break between classes and you slip down to the vending room for a little something to keep you awake through the rest of the lecture. Dropping your last piece of silver into the slot, you anxiously await your coffee savor from the General Foods International Coffee machine. Sure, it costs a little more, but it's better than the bitter stuff in other machine. Click, spray — no cup drops down! Robbed again by the coffee machine. Some folks need a cup to start the morning; others use it to help stay awake through an all-nighter. Coffee, once thought to be the boring staple for policemen and taxi drivers, is renewing its popularity as a chic and sexy alternative to the oxymoron-termed "legal beverages." According to Dave Olsen, senior vice president of coffee for Starbucks, coffee traces its origins back to 13th century Middle Eastern life. By the end of the 17th century, the dark elixir had made its way to Italy, Austria, Germany, Holland, and England. "From time to time rulers, politicians, and religious leaders - from Prussia's Frederick the Great, to England's King Charles II to Pope Clement VIII - tried to close coffeehouses, wanting to put an end to the free-spirited discussions they encouraged," Olsen said. "But the coffeehouses always prevailed." Exploration and traders spread coffee east to Indonesia and west to the Caribbean and Latin America. European settlers carried coffee with them to the New World, where it retains the largest market today. Coffee is grown in a narrow belt encircling the globe within the tropical latitudes. This region supports the coffee bush, which requires lots of sun, moderate rainfall and year- round temperatures averaging 70 degrees with no frost. More often called a tree, the coffee plant is more like a tropical evergreen shrub with white blossoms. The beans are, in fact, the seeds or pits of the fruit, known as coffee cherries for their plumpness and ripe red color. Each cherry normally contains two beans, which grow like identical twins. The "peaberry," a rounded berry that grows one to a cherry, is an exception. A coffee bush takes around five years to bear its first full crop. At this stage, it will have grown and pruned to maintain a height of approximately 6 feet. One tree can produce for 15 years or more, annually producing enough cherries to make about one pound of roasted coffee. Coffee drinkers all over campus know that a good cup of Java can set the pace for a long day. More than likely you've already enjoyed a cup from vendors around campus, including Bottari/Texas Java Company coffee wagons, American Cafe, Avanti Gourmet Coffee Shops, and from the machines located around the campus. Other popular hotspots for coffee lovers include Cafe Express, Starbuck's, and Cafe Maison. Each are popular hangouts for conversation, romantic appointments, and even studying late into the night. ~ Amy Lynn Corron a 9 D >> X) B 8 27
