A drink or beverage is a liquid intended for human consumption. In addition to their basic function of 

satisfying thirst, drinks play important roles in human culture. Common types of drinks include plain 

drinking water, milk, juice, smoothies and soft drinks. Traditionally warm beverages include coffee, tea, 

and hot chocolate. Caffeinated drinks that contain the stimulant caffeine have a long history.

In addition, alcoholic drinks such as wine, beer, and liquor, which contain the drug ethanol, have been 

part of human culture for more than 8,000 years. Non-alcoholic drinks often signify drinks that would 

normally contain alcohol, such as beer, wine and cocktails, but are made with a sufficiently low 

concentration of alcohol by volume. The category includes drinks that have undergone an alcohol 

removal process such as non-alcoholic beers and de-alcoholized wines. Coffees a brewed drink prepared from the roasted seeds of several species of an evergreen shrub of the genus Coffee. The two most common sources of coffee beans are the highly regarded Coffee Arabica, and the "Robusta" form of the hardier Coffee. Coffee plants are cultivated in more than 70 countries. Once ripe, coffee "berries" are picked, processed, and dried to yield the seeds inside. The seeds are then roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavour, before being ground and brewed to create coffee.

Coffee is slightly acidic and can have a stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content. It is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways. The effect of coffee on human health has been a subject of many studies; however, results have varied in terms of coffee's relative benefit.

Coffee cultivation first took place in southern Arabia;] the earliest credible evidence of coffee-drinking appears in the middle of the 15th century in the Sufi shrines of Yemen

Coffee may have been used socially in the renaissance period of the 17th century. The increasing trades between Europe and North Africa regions made coffee more widely available to Europeans gathering at social locations that served coffee, possibly contributing to the growth of coffeehouses
