Alongside water and tea, coffee is one of the most popular drinks worldwide with over 400 billion cups of it being consumed each year. Britain alone consumes approximately 2.8 kilos of coffee per person, per year and over £1 billion was spent on coffee last year.
Gourmet coffee is generally made from 100% Arabica beans, giving the brewed coffee a full body, fine aroma, and rich flavor. Regular coffees use Robusta beans, which are cheaper because they grow faster and are easier to produce.
The Pekin Duck has white feathers and an orange bill and feet. Before cooking the duck air is pumped through the skin to separate it from the fat. The skin is coated with sugar before roasting, which is what gives it that crispy skin. In China Peking Duck used to be a dish that only nobles could afford.
