Several species of shrub of the genus Coffea produce the berries from which coffee is extracted. The two main species commercially cultivated are Coffea canephora (predominantly a form known as 'robusta') and C. arabica.[44] C. arabica, the most highly regarded species, is native to the southwestern highlands of Ethiopia and the Boma Plateau in southeastern Sudan and possibly Mount Marsabit in northern Kenya.[45] C. canephora is native to western and central Subsaharan Africa, from Guinea to Uganda and southern Sudan.[46] Less popular species are C. liberica, C. stenophylla, C. mauritiana, and C. racemosa.

In the 17th century, coffee appeared for the first time in Europe outside the Ottoman Empire, and coffeehouses were established and quickly became popular. The first coffeehouses in Western Europe appeared in Venice, as a result of the traffic between La Serenissima and the Ottomans; the very first one is recorded in 1645. The first coffeehouse in England was set up in Oxford in 1650 by a Jewish man named Jacob in the building now known as "The Grand Cafe". A plaque on the wall still commemorates this and the cafe is now a cocktail bar.[189] By 1675, there were more than 3,000 coffeehouses in England.[190]

This study totally fucking nailed me. I bought my first West Elm sofa — the Finn, in “chenille tweed,” far too small for two grown people — at age 33. It cost $850, plus $200 for delivery. I thought it was the greatest, most adult thing in the world. I surrounded it with a table from a vendor specializing in reclaimed wood on Etsy, a butcher block that I “Ikea hacked” into something cuter, and an end table from a reclaimed furniture store in Brooklyn.

Coffee, regarded as a Muslim drink, was prohibited by Ethiopian Orthodox Christians until as late as 1889; it is now considered a national drink of Ethiopia for people of all faiths. Its early association in Europe with rebellious political activities led to Charles II outlawing coffeehouses from January 1676 (although the uproar created forced the monarch to back down two days before the ban was due to come into force).[33] Frederick the Great banned it in Prussia in 1777 for nationalistic and economic reasons; concerned about the price of import, he sought to force the public back to consuming beer.[211] Lacking coffee-producing colonies, Prussia had to import all its coffee at a great cost.[212]
Cut 11 short lengths of each of the three colours of wire you have. Make sure they are long enough to go from the end of one strip to the beginning of the next one. When laying the LED strips out you need to make sure that the data flow arrow follows a snake. Once this is laid out, carefully solder each led row to the next one as shown in the figure. This is significantly easier if you use the same colour for each type of connection.

Glass thicknesses are shown as a Nominal Thickness, meaning “in name only”, used solely for identification. These are commonly listed as 1/8″, 5/32″, 1/8″, 3/16″, 1/4″, 3/8″, and 1/2″. The nominal size may not match the exact thickness but will be within the acceptable industry-wide thickness range and can correspond to a large number of highly standardized dimensions and tolerances.
According to the listing in Victorian Furniture by R. W. Symonds & B. B. Whineray and also in The Country Life Book of English Furniture by Edward T. Joy, a table designed by E. W. Godwin in 1868 and made in large numbers by William Watt, and Collinson and Lock, is a coffee table. If this is correct it may be one of the earliest made in Europe. Other sources, however, list it only as "table" so this can be stated categorically. Far from being a low table, this table was about twenty-seven inches high.
A family room needs a sturdier coffee table. You may also want to look for one that has storage options, like drawers. The surface should be able to take abuse because spilled snacks or feet on the table are more common in casual settings. Glass tops are generally not suitable for family rooms, not just because of fragility, but finger marks and scratches too. For glass-tops without frames, there is the danger of sharp corners, especially when you have small children.

Coffea arabica is predominantly self-pollinating, and as a result, the seedlings are generally uniform and vary little from their parents. In contrast, Coffea canephora, and C. liberica are self-incompatible and require outcrossing. This means that useful forms and hybrids must be propagated vegetatively.[51] Cuttings, grafting, and budding are the usual methods of vegetative propagation.[52] On the other hand, there is great scope for experimentation in search of potential new strains.[51]

11 of copies of both parts need to be laser cut out of 3mm plywood and then assemble them to make sure they fit correctly. Once you are happy, take the matrix apart again and spray it white to improve the reflective characteristics of the table. When dry put them back together again and place them over the LEDs. It might be a bit harder to fit them together after spraying as they are now a bit thicker but don't worry just gently tap them into place before you put the matrix into the table.

Setting up bluetooth communication between a smartphone and the Arduino proved surprisingly tricky but there are a few simple steps that will make this much easier. Firstly, you will need to download an app for your smartphone. I used https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.... but there is probably an iphone equivalent (that you have to pay for ;p )
Now in the serial monitor we can send commands to the HC05 and see its response. Type "AT" and press send and you should see "OK" come back on the serial monitor - now we know it is listening. The bluetooth name of the device can be changed by typing "AT+NAME=XYZPQR" where XYZPQR is what you want the module to be called. I called mine LightWave. The default passcode for the bluetooth module is 1234 (or 0000) but this can be changed too by sending "AT+PSWD=9876" for example. Finally, we can change the communication rate of the HC05 by sending "AT+UART=38400". This is the default rate for most HC05 modules but mine was set differently so it is good practice to set it to be sure. There are lot's more details about these commands here : https://www.itead.cc/wiki/Serial_Port_Bluetooth_M... and there are also instructables about this step that have much more detail https://www.instructables.com/id/Modify-The-HC-05-...
It’s best to choose tempered glass for any kind of glass table top. Tempering means that the glass has been heat treated and cooled for extra durability. If a tempered glass table top is struck or broken, it will shatter into small, harmless pieces rather than large, sharp shards of glass. For a glass table cover, you wouldn't really need to choose tempered glass, but it does add an extra layer of safety in case you were to drop something on your table.

Coffee tables are crafted from all sorts of beautiful materials—iron, glass, you name it. To pick the one that’s right for you, first consider three things: the overall aesthetic of your room, your color palette, and how it’ll be used. Will it be purely decorative? (Try glass!) Hold books or serve as foot rest? (Think: sturdy wood or soft upholstery). Here, we outline all your options. 

Similar to the round table, the oval glass coffee table is great for rooms that are short on space. If you are looking for a table gives a room more structure an oval glass coffee table is great for this purpose.

Oval is a good call if you have some small humans running around and want to attempt to avoid any face-to-table sharp edge encounters (round is also good for this). If your living room is a high-traffic area (like, do you have to walk through it to get to another space like the kitchen or dining room?), a more sinuous shape helps with visual flow, as well. It accomplishes the same look as a rectangle but softens a really angular or modern sofa. The classic mixed marble and wood design (#1) is a favorite around here (check it out in Emily’s living room here). The thin legs keep it light and floaty (which balances the heavier wood at the bottom). Of course, the Platner table (#5) is a modern design classic, and while the brass table above from Brady’s living room is no longer available, we found a similar one in a silver tone (#7) if you love the silhouette but are flexible on the metal finish. If you’re into making a bit more of a statement, check out the cobalt blue table from Urban Outfitters at #19; it has a retro, ’80s inspired vibe that could add a serious cool factor to a simple, stripped back living space.

These days you can find them in a large varieties such as the elaborately carved wooden ones, or the ones made of glass and chrome, or even the ones in wicker and bamboo.

If soup is the first course, to the left of the dinner plate, moving clockwise, are placed a small salad fork to the left of the dinner plate; a large dinner fork to the left of the salad fork; a side plate above the forks; a wine or water glass above and to the right of the dinner plate; a large dinner knife to the right of the dinner plate; a smaller butter knife to the right of the dinner knife; a dinner spoon to the right of the knives; a soup spoon to the right of the dinner spoon.
Wood varies in softness, grain, and color, depending on the type of tree and the quality of the wood. Oak, for example, is often used for furniture because of its relative hardness and semi-affordability. Pine is often much more affordable but is also quite a bit softer than oak. Premium woods from South America and Asia can also be used and provide some impressive distinction in your home!

Since the founding of organizations such as the European Fair Trade Association (1987), the production and consumption of fair trade coffee has grown as some local and national coffee chains started to offer fair trade alternatives.[220][221] For example, in April 2000, after a year-long campaign by the human rights organization Global Exchange, Starbucks decided to carry fair-trade coffee in its stores.[222] Since September 2009 all Starbucks Espresso beverages in UK and Ireland are made with Fairtrade and Shared Planet certified coffee.[223]
