Coffee is a kind of beverahe that comes from the Arabic word qahwah, meaning wine, and not from the town of Kaffa, in Ethiopia (Abyssinia), as many writers have supposed.

Coffee is widely cultivated in tropical countries in plantations for both consumption and export to temperate countries. Coffee ranks as one of the world's major commodity crops and is a major export of some countries.
