Coffee in this amazing cake recipe gives this cake an extra boost of flavor. Coffee is a popular hot, brewed drink recipe that is made from roasted coffee beans. Coffee beans come from the seeds of the berries of the Coffea plant. The Coffea plant is native to some of the islands in subtropical Africa and southern Asia. Chocolate-covered coffee beans are a treat that is made by coating roasted coffee beans in chocolate. They roasted coffee beans can be covered in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. Chocolate covered coffee beans are usually only slightly sweet, especially when covered with dark chocolate. Like most chocolate treats, chocolate covered coffee beans are rich in fat, and with the main ingredient being coffee beans, the treat is very high in caffeine.
Coffee is cultivated mostly in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Africa, India, and Southeast Asia. The two most popular types of coffee varieties are the Arabica coffee bean and the less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy coffee known as the robusta. Once ripe, the coffee beans are then picked, processed, and later dried. The dried coffee beans are then roasted to different degrees, depending on the type of coffee flavor that is wanted. Roasted coffee beans are later ground and brewed to produce coffee as a beverage. The earliest evidence of coffee drink recipes appeared in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi shrines of Yemen. It was also at this time in Arabia that the coffee seeds were first roasted and then brewed, in a similar way to how they are prepared now.
