National Coffee Day

In honor of Coffee Day, here is some information about one of our favorite witches' brews.

Planet: Mars
Element: Fire
Energies: Conscious mind, physical energy

The first commercial coffee house was established in Turkey in 1554. The planet probably originated in Ethiopia. Around 1000 C.E., Arabs in Ethiopia began making a hot drink from the beans of the coffea arabica plant. Another Arabic invention to be thankful for. :)

Aw shucks....I didn't know today was National Coffee Day! I would have gone to Starbuck's and celelbrated with a nice Mocha Latte! I did have some seasonal Pumpkin coffee this morning though...so maybe that counts! Happy Coffee Day to you! :o)
