A Smuggler's Secret

可以請大大幫我看完文章之後幫我解答一下問題嗎

主題:A Smuggler's Secret(請幫我將主題英翻中,文章不用)

The journey continues in Africa....

What popular drink has a long history of smuggling?

Take a look into your coffee cup - the answer is at the bottom . When the Arabs first discovered coffee in Africa , they made it into a spiced drink . They kept coffee a secret until a man named Baba Budan smuggled it to India .

Coffee got to Europe in about 1600. It was almost banned as a " devil's drink " . Coffee was then carried to the Americans . A coffee plant was smuggled out of an Arab port for the Dutch , who grew coffee in their colonies . A Frenchman later stole a seeding from the Dutch . And in Brazil , a love affair with a French woman helped get coffee into that country . Not many foods have such an exciting history !

Today a cup of coffee is easy to find . But next time you choose between a latte and cappuccino , think about all the history and secrecy behind the cup .
