“Mohammed and Coffee”
The origins of coffee would appear to date back to the 6th century at least. Allah asked the Archangel Gabriel to go to the assistance of the prophet Mohammed, who was seriously ill. The miracle was performed by a new hot drink which was “as black as the Kaaba in Mecca”. After drinking a cup of coffee, the prophet of Islam not only recovered, but found the energy he needed to defeat 40 warriors and conquer 40 women. After this story started to be told, coffee, with its restorative, medicinal powers, went on to replace wine and become the very symbol of eastern hospitality.
