The precious beans were jealously kept in the continent for a long time and exported beans sterilized to ensure the monopoly. Another legend says the pilgrim Babu Adan smuggled 7 coffee beans back to his home in India. Eventually, the cultivation spreads in North Africa. The Dutch would later plant coffee trees in India and South and Central America, trading in Europe the golden beans known as Koffie.
The Turkish people are said to be the first to import in Paris their home drink called Kave, made of roasted coffee beans, ground to flour and mixed with hot water in a small glass. The French called it Le Café.
