The History of Coffee

In 1637 a meeting place in Oxford started to sell a new hot bitter drink, which had just been introduced into Britain. This drink was called coffee, which was soon to become very fashionable amongst the well to do.

Coffee had been discovered in Ethiopia thousands of years before. At this time the local tribes mixed the fruit of coffee plants with fat and ate them. Before AD 1000 the Arabs used coffee cherries to make cold drinks. Within 200 years a hot drink made from coffee beans was available throughout the Middle East.

Coffee Houses – the Beginning

In the early 17th Century, traders brought coffee to Europe. Pope Clement VIII (1536-1605) gave coffee his blessing and the first coffee house opened in Italy. Coffee houses opened all over Europe and they became popular places to meet friends or conduct business. It is rumoured that Lloyd’s Insurance and the Stock Exchange both developed from the 17th Century coffee houses.

Coffee is grown mainly in Brazil, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Uganda and Central America. The berry is ground and used in most countries as a breakfast beverage.

Chocolate

Chocolate starts life as a bean within a pod produced by the cocoa plant. Today, the beans are produced from West African trees. The pods are harvested and the beans are left to ferment. The beans are stored in a temperature of 500O C between layers of banana leaves and left for 5-6 days. After this, the beans are dried in the sun.

The beans are then shipped off to the chocolate factory where they are cleaned and roasted. They are then processed and ground into a liquid known as cocoa mass. Further processing, forces out the oily cocoa butter and the remaining block is ground into cocoa which can be used for drinking chocolate.

Chocolate bars are manufactured from a mixture of cocoa mass sugar and spices. Milk…...

Sanfrancisco Cofee

...Company/Industry COMPANY PROFILE: San Francisco Coffee House (SFCH) is the first American-style coffee house in Croatia. Jasmina Pacek and Denis Tensek after spending six years in America decided to enrich their home country Osijek with a completely new concept: they opened San Francisco Coffee House – a unique place in Croatia where one could enjoy the original atmosphere of an American city coffee house. The California-style coffee house offers the quality, service, product assortment, ambiance and efficiency found in sophisticated coffee shops in developed markets, at a locally affordable price. Problem Although San Francisco Coffee House has been a major success, one of the key challenges the couple now face is how to grow nationally. Specifically, should they consider franchising over organic growth? If so, how should they go about franchising in a country where the market is developing and where franchising is under-regulated, underdeveloped and not completely understood. Strategic Options The major strategic option that the coffee house now has is which business model it should choose in order to expand in the market. Should Tensek and Pacek consider franchising or should they choose organic growth? An important factor that could decide what model they choose depends upon the threat that they could face from the competitors. Another strategic option to improve their profile is that they could work upon their brand name recognition by better marketing,......

...CIS 10 | PC Gaming | | Ryan Mills 4-24-2014 | PCs are a good choice for gaming for a multitude of reasons, including but not limited to price, reparability, upgradability, value, versatility, performance, game selection, game prices, and more. Computers are an ever-evolving platform. It grows in power, capability, and value almost every single year. The cause of this improvement is partially because it is free of control from any single entity. Rather than being regulated by a single company, control and improvement influence over the PC belongs to everyone equally. Everybody has the freedom to create and/or sell software and hardware for it. It's being constantly improved by competing companies and individuals all over the hardware spectrum, and all of them are trying to offer you (and game developers) the best experience possible. A common misconception is that pc gaming is more expensive than consoles. It is not. Especially if you only plan to target console performance. There are already graphics cards available on the market for $150 that surpass the PS4 and XBox One in terms of frame rate, resolution, detail, value, and power draw. A lot of people incorrectly believe that you have to spend upwards of $750-$1000 to get a PC fully capable of handling games. These inaccuracies can be attributed partially to the highly vocal and misinformed masses, and to the availability and hype of the expensive PC hardware we see advertised a lot. You see it more because......

...PC Upgrades Michael Ganoe I replaced the keyboard and mouse with the Logitech MK320 wireless ones. The approximate cost would be $40 plus tax. I also installed the device driver and software to be able to use the wireless keyboard and mouse. I choose the MK320 because I liked the looks of it and because of the relatively low cost. I unplugged the current keyboard and mouse from the pc. I used the provided cd to install the device drivers and software. Once installed I paired the keyboard and mouse with the pc. This allows easy use of the mouse and keyboard without the limitations of the wired version. I replaced the pc memory with the G.Skill Trident X Series 8GB. The approximate cost would be $75 dollars plus tax. I choose this memory card because 8GB is more than enough memory. I removed all media from the pc. I turned the pc off. I unplugged the power supply to the pc. I unplugged all attached cables from the pc. I lifted the plastic shield on the back on the pc stand. I used a flat-head screwdriver to remove the screw that secures the cover. I removed the cover. I then pressed outwards on the tabs on the right and left sides of the memory card to release it.

...noted that in the mid ‘90s, the main administrator of government-subsidized housing finance programs, the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation or NHMFC, was considered technically insolvent and irreversibly illiquid. “The corporation incurred net losses of P64 million in 1993, which increased six-fold by end of 1995 to P340 million. The fiscal impact of these losses was huge,” Ballesteros said. Problems with government housing finance persist, with the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) putting on hold its housing loan program in 2011 due to total unpaid loans of P11 billion for 17,000 house-and-lot packages nationwide. It had been providing housing loans since 1954, previously to GSIS members only but later began extending loans to developers. The institution eventually went into real estate development, buying land and building houses and selling these as house-and-lot packages. GSIS did not have adequate manpower to support its various financing activities, however, which resulted in its failure to collect payments. As of mid-2014, GSIS reported that its housing loan remedial and restructuring program had only restructured about P1.5 billion worth of accounts covering 3,000 borrowers. Ballesteros said that, moving forward, more effective institutional and policy changes have to be made. Subsidy interventions in the financial system, for instance, should be focused on low- to middle-income households, or those who are able to fulfill obligations......

The remaining $30,000 needed to cover the start-up expenses and assets came from the two bank loans--a one-year loan in the amount of $10,000 and a long-term (five years) loan of $20,000. Both loans were secured through the Bank of America. Thus, total start-up loss is assumed in the amount of $27,680. The following chart and table summarize the start-up......

...their children; parents were no longer willing to buy $300 premium shoes for their kids as they did in previous years. Mr. Gorr concurred and mentioned something about “not sparing the rod.” In order to compensate for decreased sales, the Company has raised prices by about 10% with respect to product costs. Mr. Lancaster lamented that the quality of Apollo products was too high—the shoes were just not wearing out fast enough. Mr. Lancaster also stated that because of the strength of current product lines and as a cost-cutting measure, he decided to stop research and development efforts on the Phoneshoe, thereby eliminating Research and Development expense for the current year. The development lab will be modified in 2012 to house a personal gym for corporate executives. Scientists working in the lab have been reassigned to maintenance duties elsewhere in the company. The Company has also saved postage and telephone expense through increased use of e-mail. In other business, the board authorized the write-off of one account receivable for $8,810.13 for an account that had been outstanding for over a year. Mr. Lancaster noted that he did not anticipate any other write-offs during the year, or that “heads would roll!” Mr. Unum moved that Apollo advance $1,000,000 to Mr. Lancaster’s personal secretary as a personal loan to cover personal legal expenses related to her previous employer.

Upgrading a Pc

...Upgrading a PC Rodolfo Garcia Jr. EET250 Computer Configuration I ECPI University Abstract This paper covers the topics of upgrading a PC with new components such as RAM, Wireless Devices, larger Hard Drive, and a new Optical drive. This paper will discuss the prices and benefits of performing these upgrades. Keywords: Motherboard, CPU, RAM, PCI, SATA, technician, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, USB, Hard Drive, Optical Drive, DVD, Blu-Ray, HDMI, 1080p video. Upgrading a PC As technology changes, so does the needs of the average PC user. When technology outpaces the capabilities of your PC, many people choose to upgrade their device instead of purchasing a completely new system which sometimes happens after a couple of months. There are several ways to upgrade a PC to keep it up to date with the emerging technology. When the motherboard and CPU are relatively newer, they are often capable of keeping up with the newest demands placed on them, however other components could benefit from an upgrade to improve performance and stability. Some of the most common upgrades include new or additional RAM, wireless devices such as a keyboard and mouse, larger and/or faster hard drive, and a new optical drive that is capable of handling the demands of new video and storage capabilities. Upgrading RAM is probably the single best option for improving speed and performance of a system. When it comes to upgrading RAM there are a few things to keep in mind such as the......

Pc Industry

...From the mid 1970’s the structure of the PC industry had experienced a huge growth and changed dramatically. In 2001, 40% of the PC shipments were accounted by the top four PC vendors namely: Dell, Compaq, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and IBM. Dell, a direct-sales pioneer, grew exponentially in the 1990s and emerged as the worldwide market leader in 2001. During 2001-2002 it was the most profitable among the market leaders. Compaq came up with a full range of PCs ranging between $1,000 and $10,000. Whereas, IBM, which at once had a market share of 30%, was at this time going through a dramatic restructuring to stop its market share and profits from deteriorating further. Whereas, HP maintained a comparatively smaller share in PC sales. Besides these main vendors, there existed other well-known brands such as Acer, Fujitsu, Gateway, NEC and Toshiba. Also, there existed PCS without brands which were assembled by small retailers, resellers accounting for about 23% of the market in North America, 50% in Europe and over two-thirds of the market in China. DELL: Dell’s distinct and successful business model mainly focused on direct sales and build-to-order manufacturing. Shipping of the products was provided in 36 hours, which was how Dell was able to maintain the inventory of as low as six days compared to Compaq’s 26 days inventory. Their model helped them achieve the goal of offering products to customers that accurately matched their requirements and liking. COMPAQ: Compaq was......
