17 - When Drinking Coffee Could Get You Decapitated

This is the 2nd episode in our two part series on coffee. Last time we heard about the origins of coffee discovered by dancing goats in Ethiopia, as well as a few scandinavian kings who took a particular dislike to what they believed was the devils brew. After a few human experiments and Prussian sniffer squads we find ourselves back here today about to talk about coffees role in the Ottoman empire. So if nothing of what I said back there made any sense, make sure to go back and have a listen to the previous episode titled “When a Swedish King Tried To Kill A Prisoner With Coffee" - https://bit.ly/2CFdI8y
