Coffee can be addictive, and so are these funny coffee puns!

Your little coffee lovers are bound to be delighted by these coffee jokes that will leave them full of beans! Words cannot espresso how much these puns on coffee will make them laugh.

But first, some history and a few facts about coffee, the second most loved beverage in the world behind water! It is thought to have been discovered by a goat herder in Ethiopia in the 16th century (better latte than never!), who noticed his goats had a lot more energy after consuming coffee. Other historians believe the beverage was discovered in Yemen during the 15th century, where monks brewed coffee in the town of Mocha.

Coffee 'beans' are a bit of a misnomer. In fact, coffee beans are the pit of a berry which grows on a bush. So really, coffee is a fruit, but unfortunately it does not count towards one of your five a day!

The delicious hot drink is produced by drying, roasting and grinding coffee beans. Once you have coffee grounds, the possibilities are endless: you could make a straight espresso by running hot water through the grounds at high pressure, a latte by adding lots of frothy milk and foam, a mocha by adding chocolate powder and foam, an americano with added water, and the list goes on!

The cappuccino has an interesting story: the name comes from Italian Capuchin monks and their robes. The colour of the coffee with added frothy milk is much like that of the monk's attire, hence the name!

People love coffee so much that it is the most valuable traded commodity after petrol. Around 500 billion cups of coffee are consumed around the world every year. The first coffee shop is thought to have opened in Constantinople (modern day Istanbul) in 1475. Today, Starbucks, perhaps the most famous coffee chain in the world, opens on average one coffee shop a day! It now counts more than 27,000 stores around the world. It's also thought that the chain sells over 87,000 drink combinations.

Caffeine should be consumed with moderation. Coffee consumption can cause adverse effects such as dehydration or sleep deprivation, so remember to drink plenty of water with your hot drinks and to not drink them too late in the day! Some studies have even shown that drinking too much coffee could kill, although it would take about 70 cups of the beverage to kill an adult. On the other hand, coffee is thought to accelerate the human metabolism and to reduce the risk of liver damage in adults.

Now that you are an expert on all things coffee, you can enjoy these puns and jokes on coffee with your family.
