Since the discovery of coffee in the 9th-century, humans have been on a mission to create the perfect cup.

But this feat requires more than just high quality beans and impeccable roasting, there is also a great deal of complex chemistry involved.

This week’s Reactions episode takes viewers on a journey behind the scenes of how coffee is processed for drinking and shares tips on how to make the perfect cup.

Legend has it that a 9th-century Ethiopian goat-herder named Kaldi observed his herd behaving erratic after eating red berries near a Coffea Arabica tree.

After trying some himself, he found his behavor to also be hyper.

Kaldi brought a batch to a monastery where they roasted the beans with warm water – creating the first cup of coffee.

‘We all know and love coffee for the caffeine, but caffeine doesn’t really affect its flavor,’ shares the Reactions team.
