The word 'cappuccino' is the result of several derivations, the original of which began in 16th century. The Capuchin order of friars, established after 1525, played an important role in bringing Catholicism back to Reformation Europe. Its Italian name came from the long, pointed cowl, or cappuccino, derived from cappuccino, "hood," that was worn as part of the order's habit. The French version of cappuccino was capuchin, from which came English Capuchin. In Italian cappuccino went on to describe espresso coffee mixed or topped with steamed milk or cream, so called because the color of the coffee resembled the color of the habit of a Capuchin friar. The first use of cappuccino in English is recorded in 1948 in a work about San Francisco.
There is also the story line that says that the term comes from the fact that the coffee is dark, like the monk's robe, and the cap is likened to the color of the monk's head. ☕️
Every now and then I customer will asked if I ever find it annoying doing so many pour overs. And the answer is simply no. I honestly love this brewing method. I think pour overs are the perfect way to prepare coffee and I will happily continue to make them as long people are willing to drink them.
Happy first day of Spring!💐🌷🍀
A few weeks ago I didn’t ever think this day was going to come.. for real. But that’s why God is in control and not me. 😁🤷🏻♀️
There’s just something so refreshing about the changing seasons! 🙌🏼🤗
Taukhid and Mardjuki are two young coffee farmers originally from Java island who migrated to Sumatera when they were young with hope to improve their life. They live with their families in stilt houses in upper Sumber Jaya village at an altitude of approximately 650 m. In their early years working as coffee farmers, they borrowed a lot of money from a local loan shark who also works as a coffee trader. Every year, they had to pay high interest on their loan, which made it difficult for them to meet the needs for their families and farms.
Since local coffee farmers got together to establish a farmers group and under HRNS Indonesia program to set up a Smallholder Coffee Cooperative, called locally KPB, (help improve access to project training, increase productivity and profitability, which in turn able to increase their income) their life has become better off with the support of the two groups to manage their farms and feed their families.
They were able to set aside a part of their income to build water turbine to generate electricity power to provide electricity to several households nearby. This year, they are looking forward to higher yields, which they expect to start harvesting the coffee in April in their area. This is a project supported by @smuckersbrand
