The coffee plant is originally from Ethiopia and has been used in human food since the VI century AC. Coffee is a beverage produced from the roasted beans of the Coffee Tree. During the 80s the coffee became the second most traded commodity in the world in monetary value, only behind oil. This statistic is still widely quoted today. During the product crisis in the 90s, its value was reduced due to the fall in the total value of exports from producing and roasting countries. In 2003, coffee was the seventh most important agricultural export product in terms of value, next to wheat, corn and soybeans. Today coffee is the second most consumed drink in the world and the most consumed drink outside the home. Only water surpasses global coffee consumption.
