On the Coffee Trail
More than 1.5 billion cups of coffee are drunk worldwide every day—enough to fill nearly 300 Olympic-size swimming pools. If you do not have
a jar of coffee in your kitchen, you are in a minority. Coffee is a global industry and the second largest commodity-based product; only oil beats it.
More than 1,200 years ago hardworking people fought to stay awake without this stimulant until, as the story goes, a herd of curious goats and their watchful master, an Arab named Khalid, discovered this simple, life- changing substance. As his goats grazed on the Ethiopian slopes, he noticed they became lively and excited after eating a particular berry. Instead of just eating the berries, people boiled them to create al-qahwa.
Sufis in Yemen drank al-qahwa for the same reasons we do today, to stay awake. It helped them to concentrate during late night Thikr (prayers in remembrance of Allah). Coffee was spread to the rest of the Muslim world by travelers, pilgrims, and traders, reaching Mecca and Turkey in the late 15th century and Cairo in the 16th century.
It was a Turkish merchant named Pasqua Rosee who first brought coffee to England in 1650, selling it in a coffeehouse in George-yard, Lombard Street, London. Eight years later, another coffeehouse called Sultaness Head was opened in Cornhill. Lloyd’s of London, today a famous insurance company, was originally a coffee shop called Edward Lloyd’s Coffee House. By 1700, there were about 500 coffeehouses in London, and nearly 3,000 in the whole of England. They were known as “penny universities” because you could listen and talk with the great minds of the day for the price of a coffee.
The consumption of coffee in Europe was largely based on the traditional Muslim preparation of the drink. This entailed boiling the mixture of coffee powder, sugar, and water together, which left a coffee residue in the cup because it was not filtered. However, in 1683, a new way of preparing and drinking coffee was discovered, and it became a coffeehouse favorite.
Cappuccino coffee was inspired by Marco d’Aviano, a priest from the Capuchin monastic order, who was fighting against the Turks besieg- ing Vienna in 1683. Following the retreat of the Turks, the Viennese made coffee from abandoned sacks of Turkish coffee. Finding it too strong for their taste, they mixed it with cream and honey. This made the color of coffee turn brown, resem- bling the color of the Capuchins’ robes. Thus, the Viennese named it cappuccino in honor of Marco D’Aviano’s order. Since then, cappuccino has been drunk for its enjoyable, smooth taste.

Revue de presse

"...this heavily illustrated volume, edited by Salim T.S. Al-Hassani, stands on its own as an accessible history of the golden era that spanned from the 7th to the 17th century." 
--Boston Sunday Globe

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fills a 1000 Year Gap in our Knowledge 26 avril 2014
Par Naeem Ali - Publié sur Amazon.com
Very little is known about Islamic history and the positive impact Muslims have made. Muslim contributions in the sciences are vast in its scope, meticulous in its detail and original in its research. None of this is recognized, and if it is, it's only in small academic corners of universities. From the mainstream perspective, there were the Greeks, the Persians, the Indians skip 1400 years and the European Renaissance just miraculously happened. No acknowledgement of Muslim contributions.

Professor Al-Hassani says it best.

A popular history book written in 1979 about the history of science and technology lists

"...The names of the great inventors, to whom they devote short chapters, follow in chronological order: Empedocles (circa 490-430 BCE), Democritus (460-370 BCE), Hippocrates (460-377 BCE), Aristotle (383-322 BCE), Archimedes (287-212 BCE), (skip 1600 years - my words) Johannes Guttenberg (1400-1468 CE), followed by others such as Da Vinci. The remarkable jump of 1600 years from the time of Archimedes to Gutenberg was amazing and troubling. Further reading of other books revealed that the whole period 450 - 1492 CE is in fact passed over as the Dark Ages."

1001 Inventions is Professor Al-Hassani's attempts to fill this 1000 year gap and bring this history to the masses. He covers every aspect of the contributions Muslims made in mathematics, astronomy, medicine, chemistry, biology, physics, architecture, the arts, economics and societal . The book is well written, with beautiful illustrations and some amazing stories.

It's a great book for any age and I highly recommend it.

We were eyeing this book since we went to the 1001 Inventions Exhibition in LA last year, and finally I purchased it, I bought one for my family and one for friend as a gift, and it will be my top item for gift giving for few years: the book is well written: covers the topic in various arenas: home, school, hospital and world etc. and describes the contribution of Muslims towards civilization, it is equally attractive for both adult and a third grader with beautiful colorful pictures and a wealth of information.
