There is this old saying that goes: “A yawn is a quiet scream for more coffee”. Coffee keeps us going in the moments of our busy lives.

From chocolate covered espresso beans, chocolate bars, hard candies and even coffee flavor-infused caramels, Redstone Foods offers an exceptional variety of delicious sweet treats that are perfect for any coffee enthusiast! Let’s begin by taking a look at some of the rich history behind the magical coffee bean!

How did humans start consuming coffee?

No one really knows when, or how coffee cultivation and consumption by humans began. However, there are many legends and folk tales surrounding this highly sought-after caffeinated bean. It is likely that some fragments of truth must lie within these ancient tales.

According to the National Coffee Association, one prominent legend is of a 9th century Ethiopian goat herder who noticed that his goats gained so much energy that they didn’t want to sleep after eating the berries from a certain tree. Upon reporting his discovery to his local monastery, the abbot made a drink with the berries and found that it kept him attentive through his long, nightly prayer services.

After many centuries, word of this energizing beverage began to spread quickly throughout the Arabian Peninsula. This marked the beginning coffee’s long journey of cultivation and experimentation across the globe.

During the Ottoman Empire, people began roasting coffee beans, which gave it the characteristic flavor we’ve grown accustomed to. Roasting the green coffee beans creates a chemical reaction, known as the Maillard Reaction which gives it a distinct aroma compounds and more complex flavor profiles. This roasting process helped create the classic coffee flavor we know and love today.

Coffee sales continue to thrive to this day.

It is estimated that 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide each and every day. Coffee is currently the 2nd most valuable, legally-traded global commodity in the world, just behind petroleum. People from all cultures and all countries of the world love their coffee and most consume it regularly.

One great thing about all this love for coffee means that there are a seemingly infinite number of ways to enjoy its earthy, nutty, smoky, bitter and sometimes sweet flavor. Of course, our favorite way to enjoy coffee flavor is through candy!
