I consciously started learning about coffee four months ago – From learning the history of coffee to the types of coffee and even how coffee is grown and fertilized, this new knowledge has created new pathways in my brain. Then I had a bright idea the other day – how about a coffee quiz?

I did not do very well in the quiz but I assure you my knowledge of coffee is no longer rookie-level.
