From Crop to Cup By: Miranda Harbolt

In 1773 the Boston Tea Party occurred which placed taxes on coffee in place of tea, after that time coffee came to the New World, England. This made coffee very popular, and it took off from there.

The production of coffee is a difficult thing to take on, the production of coffee includes: planting the coffee fruit, next harvest them then sort the beans, after that drying, grating, and bagging the sorted coffee, next you roast the coffee until done, finally put the coffee in a storage bag for stores.
Coffee started going down hill when the noticed a few environmental issues which are, which of the coffee beans grow better in the shade or in the sun, which makes it hard to keep all the coffee beans together, another one is crop rotation, because if another crop is being planted in the same area another plant needs to be growing, they have to wait and that slows down the process.
Economics are a big issue with coffee also because people started taking advantage of the producers and they started to quit, which made it even harder to producer without the right number of producers to help plant, harvest, and work at factories.

Coffee has been a big part of people's everyday life, and continues to be.
