Here are a few fun facts about Coffee. Sense I’m getting into the Coffee business, I figured, why not learn more and more about Coffee. Why not? Here are some fun facts to enjoy.
Coffee was originally eaten. African tribes mixed Coffee Berries with fat, which in turn made edible energy balls.
All Coffee in the world is grown in what’s known as the “Bean Belt.” It stretches between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Hawaii is the only state in the US that grows this remarkable bean.
In 1675, the King of England banned Coffee Houses, claiming that they were places where people met to conspire against him.
70% of the world consumes Arabica Coffee, which is a mild and aromatic Coffee. The other 30% of Coffee drinkers, drink Robusta, which is more bitter, but has half again (50% more) as much caffeine.

The Bean is actually a Seed inside a bright red berry.

There is a great quote that was shared with me this past week. ”If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” by Erica Jong
This has a lot of meaning to me in the recent days. This quote can be taken in several different ways. It can be taken in a Psychological way, or a Physical way.
What this means to me is that you have to put yourself out there. You can say what you want to do all you want. If you don’t actually get out there, nothing will ever happen.
Why is this important? It’s everything you will become. It’s your future.
My plans to travel the world have taken a full turn. Instead of being lazy about it, I’m taking charge. I’m not going to sit here and be a lazy bum the rest of my life. Never.
I now have a goal. We can’t make that goal happen though without dedication. So, what am I doing to make it all happen? What’s my dedication?
My dedication happens to be the fact that I know I’ll never get anywhere if I don’t do something now. So, why wait around for things to happen right? In order to get some where, you have to have a plan.
Goals are useless without plans. That’s one thing that’s been holding me back. They say that realizing there is a problem is half the battle. I’m moving ahead at full speed now.
I’m inspired. Thanks to Social Media and the connections I’ve made, I’m able to push forward. And Kickstarter is going to help me get there.
My goal now is to do a bit of research and make a plan to make my dreams happen. Then it’s off to Kickstarter. I’ll get enough Pledges to at least get me where I need to be to get started.
What is my goal? Simply put, To Travel. My goal is to immerse myself into the world. Not everyone will have the opportunity to do so. I plan on making that happen.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. I’ll find that way. Success is around the corner. Just in reach.
What are you going to do now, that you’ve been holding off? Are you going to let that last second slip away? That last chance?
