Caffeine Trivia 10.26.13

Coffee was brought into Costa Rica from Cuba by a Spanish traveller, Navarro, in 1779. Hence it is not their native plant.

Personal note: Who knew? Now they grow some of the best coffee beans (berries) in the world.  My last trip to Costa Rica I packed one suitcase with coffee beans to bring back to my friends as gifts!
