Not many consumers who drink coffee know about the history of their money drink and it connection to Africa. If you ask a person today about coffee the first thing that may come into their mind is Italian espresso or latte with a french croissant. Not many people know that the coffee bean has a history beyond Europe and the Americas.
No doubt you've started to think about doing your Christmas shopping. I'm halfway through mine, I decided to start in September this year and I'm glad I did. The older you get, the more children there are to buy presents for and it's a bloody nightmare. Some of them I honestly cant even remember how old they are. Gone are the days when I could just buy a couple of presents for family and friends. Christmas should be called Cripplemas, it will cripple you by the time its done. So the best advice I can give anyone is - start shopping early.
