Coffee is one of the most consumed and loved beverages between people worldwide, present in almost everyone’s lives even when you’re not a fan of this drink. It’s available in places such as schools, business offices, hospitals, restaurants and is appreciated for the majority. There are a lot of ways people gather around to drink coffee, for exemple the famous ‘coffee break’ that is a daily practice in millions’s routine. It can be an idea of a date, where you invite someone to go to a coffee shop and get to know each other or it can be a friendly way to meet someone that you don’t see as often.

Countries and industries rely their economies on farming, exportation, industrialization and selling of coffee with millions of workers behind this enormous industry. For example, cultivation is a vital source of income for many farmers in Latin America such as Brazil and Colombia. And the selling process is important in Filand, the nation with the biggest average consumer per person.
