Here in the UK, when it comes to enjoying a nice hot drink, it's not all about tea. We like coffee too - and we like it a lot! Sam and Neil talk about the coffee 'boom' and teach you related vocabulary.

This week's question
The earliest coffee to arrive in Britain took its name from the port in Yemen it was shipped from. So, what was it called?
a) Cappuccino
b) Mocha
c) Latte
Listen to the programme to find out the answer.

Hello. I am writing from Japan. Thank you for providing this kind of channnel. This is good lesson and training for non-natives like me because it provides not just Enligh lessons, but also I can learn social topics glovally as well. BTW, I love black coffee when I am exhausted and sleepy after lunch or huge amount of work. But drinking too much coffee everyday rather makes me numb or feel like it is non-effective. So after trial for a long time, I think a few(2 or 3) cups of coffee seems proper amount for one day. I will continue learning English throughout this channnel. I really appreciate it.

Caffeine does perk you up but a cup of green tea also has almost or sometimes more caffeine than a cup of coffee.

Grab a cup of coffee from the microlot and a loaf of artisanal bread to perk up your day.
Colombia is a gigantic microlot (I'm from Colombia and we love coffee).
When I was a toddler, I needed to wean myself off arcade games because I was hooked.
The word fairtrade reminds me of "fair play" used in football matches.
Three cups of coffee a day keeps the doctor away.
A cup of coffee gets me through the day.
