Wednesday Coffee Facts, Round Two

It's Wednesday! That means that here at the Gourmesso office we've been busy collecting some new and exciting coffee facts for you! Read on for your weekly dose of coffee knowledge.

1. Coffee is actually a fruit!
Coffee beans actually come from inside a coffee cherry, officially making them a fruit.

2. Bees love the caffeine in coffee
It's widely known that coffee was possibly first consumed by a goat herder who noticed how active his goats became after eating some coffee berries. Scientist have also found that bees get the same caffeine kick from the berries! It even helps the bees long term memory, and most likely has the same affect on humans.

There's more to come!
