Blessed Brew

Coffee has been around for centuries. From the early years of the 15th Century at the latest, and in the mid-1600s coffee spread to Europe through Italy via trade with North Africa. (Italy has had string trading ties with African since Roman times.) That’s old. But probably still not quite as old as the quasi-Medieval world of most fantasy worlds. That is assuming the world has some vaguely Arabic equivalent where coffee could originate.

Still… anachronistic or not, I love my coffee too much to ever imagine a world without it. I’ll accept hordes of orcs, rampaging dragons, and worse threats to life and happiness, but I refuse to have part in the creation of a land devoid of coffee.
