The human race has been drinking coffee for centuries. The first evidence dates back to the 15th century, in the Sufi Monasteries of Yemen, where coffee beans were exported from Ethiopia.

By the 16th century, the rest of the Middle East and North Africa had joined in – and the caffeine craze officially began conquering the world.

“Coffee” comes from the Arabic verb qahā (“to lack hunger”), as the drink is a natural appetite suppressant – which might explain why the entire world is addicted to it.

To avoid looking like a fool (ie: ordering a latte in Italy and getting a cup of warm milk), here is an infographic that indicates how locals drink their coffee in 31 countries:
