  6. 6. History of coffee AFRICAN ORIGINS (Circa A.D. 800) Goats will eat anything. Just ask Kaldi the legendary Ethiopia goatherd. Kaldi, the story goes, noticed his herd dancing from one coffee shrub to another, grazing on the cherry-red berries containing the beans. He copped a few himself and was soon frolicking with his flock. Witnessing Kaldi’s goatly gambol, a monk plucked berries for his brothers. That night they were uncannily alert to divine inspiration. History tells us other Africans of the same era fueled up on protein-rich coffee-and-animal-fat balls—primitive PowerBars—and unwound with wine made from coffee-berry pulp. Coffee later crossed the Red Sea to Arabia, where things really got cooking...ESCAPE FROM ARABIA(Circa 1000 to 1600) Coffee as we know it kicked off in Arabia, where roasted beans were first brewed around A.D. 1000. By the 13th century Muslims were drinking coffee religiously. The “bean broth” drove dervishes into orbit, kept worshippers awake, and splashed over into secular life. And wherever Islam went, coffee went too: North Africa the eastern Mediterranean, and India Arabia made export beans infertile by parching or boiling, and it is said that no coffee seed sprouted outside Africa or Arabia until the 1600s—until Baba Budan. As tradition has it, this Indian pilgrim-cum-smuggler left Mecca with fertile seeds strapped to his belly. Baba’s beans bore fruit and initiated an agricultural expansion that would soon reach Europe’s colonies... THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 6 ©
  7. 7. More history EUROPE CATCHES THE BUZZ (1615 to 1700)“The Turks have a drink of black color....I will bring some with me...to theItalians” Thus a merchant of Venice introduced Europe to coffee in 1615. Butthe end product didn’t amount to a hill of beans to many traders—theywanted the means of production. The race was on.The Dutch cleared the initial hurdle in 1616, spiriting a coffee plant into Europefor the first time. Then in 1696 they founded the first European-owned coffeeestate, on colonial Java, now part of IndonesiaBusiness boomed and the Dutch sprinted ahead to adjacent islands.Confident beyond caution, Amsterdam began bestowing coffee trees onaristocrats around Europe... A SWASHBUCKLING SCHEME (Circa 1714 to 1720) Louis XIV received his Dutch treat around 1714— a coffee tree for Paris’s Royal Botanical Garden, the Jardin des Plantes. Several years later a young naval officer, Gabriel Mathieu de Clieu, was in Paris on leave from Martinique, a Frenchcolony in the Caribbean. Imagining Martinique as a French Java, he requested clippings from his king’s tree. Permission denied.Resolute, de Clieu led a moonlight raid of the Jardin des Plantes—over the wall, into the hothouse, out with a sprout. Mission accomplished, de Clieu sailed for Martinique. He might have thought the hard part was over. He would have been wrong... THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 7 ©
  8. 8. Even moreFACTS REAL GOLD coffee history CROSSING THE ATLANTIC (Circa 1720 to 1770)On the return passage to Martinique, wrote de Clieu, a “basely jealous”passenger, “being unable to get this coffee plant away from me, tore off abranch.”Then came the pirates who nearly captured the ship; then came a stormwhich nearly sank it. Finally, skies grew clear. Too clear, Water grew scarceand was rationed. De Clieu gave half of his allotment to his stricken seedling.Under armed guard, the sprout grew strong in Martinique, yielding anextended family of approximately 18 million trees in 50 years or so. Its progeny would supply Latin America, where a dangerous liaison would help bring coffee to the masses... COFFEE BLOOMS IN BRAZIL (Circa 1727 to 1800) 1727: Brazil’s government wants a cut of the coffee market; but first, they need an agent to smuggle seeds from a coffee country. Enter Lt. Col. Francisco de Melo Palheta, the James Bond of Beans. Colonel Palheta is dispatched to French Guiana, ostensibly to mediate a border dispute. Eschewing the fortress like coffee farms, suave Palheta chooses a path of less resistance—thegovernor’s wife. The plan pays off. At a state farewell dinner she presents hima sly token of affection: a bouquet spiked with seedlings.From these scant shoots sprout the world’s greatest coffee empire. By 1800Brazil’s monster harvests would turn coffee from an elite indulgence to aneveryday elixir, a drink for the people. So that’s the history of coffee, theRobert McAngus Group Buy’s Sells and drinks this wonderful elixir ………………have you had yours today? THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 8 ©
  9. 9. the economics of sugarMost sugar is either consumed in the country where it is produced undergovernment controlled pricing arrangements or moved from one country toanother under long-term supply agreements. The sugar not subject to suchagreements is freely traded among a number of nations, corporations andindividuals. This makes the market for sugar a "residual" market - a market inwhich freely traded sugar is only a fraction of worldwide production. Since thefree market may be only 20-25% of world production, a small change inproduction or consumption can translate to a much larger change in freemarket sugar supply. The delicate supply/demand balance is a main reason forsugars high levels of historical price volatility.In the United States, import tariffs have long supported the domestic sugarindustry, with quotas typically holding U.S. prices steadily above those in theworld market.There are two main types of sugar grownin the world: cane and beet. The sugarsupplied by RMG Commodities a divisionof The Robert McAngus Group Limited arecane type. Both produce the identicalrefined sugar product. Sugar cane is abamboo-like grass grown in semi-topicalregions and equatorial region where rainis plentiful and the strong direct sunlightnourished the cane. Cane sugaraccounts for about 70% of worldproduction. Beet sugar comes from the sugar beet plant, which grows intemperate climates and accounts for the balance of world production. Intemperate weather, disease, insects, soil quality and cultivation affect bothcane and beet production, as do trade agreements and price supportprograms.Brazil, India, China, Thailand, Cuba and Mexico are among the leading sugarcane producers. European Union nations, the Russian Federation and Ukraineproduce the majority of all sugar beets. The European Union, Brazil, Thailand,Australia, Cuba and Ukraine are leading sugar exporters.Both cane and beet sugar are grown in regions of the U.S.; sugar beetproduction in the U.S. accounts for about 9% of the world total and caneproduction about 3% of the world supply. U.S. sugar cane is grown in Florida,Louisiana, Hawaii, Texas and Puerto Rico. Beet sugar is grown in 14 states, withMinnesota, Idaho, North Dakota and California leading production.

  10. 10. the demand for sugarIndustrialized nations account for most sugar consumption. The European Union,Russian Federation, United States, China and Japan are among the world’slargest sugar importers.Beyond price, other factors influencing sugar demand include: refinery activity;consumer income; candy and confectionery sales; changing eating habits; andsugars use in new technologies, such as ethanol production for automobile fuel.Many South American countries use sugar and corn based ethanol in theirunleaded gasoline and diesel engines.

  11. 11. Edible oilsThe Robert McAngus Group deals with a wide variety of edible oils, but isprimarily dedicated to the Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Palm oil, Coconut oil, Corn oil,Cottonseed oil, Canola oil, Peanut oil, Safflower oil, Sesame oil, Soybean oil,Avocado oil, Rape seed oil,Walnut oil industry.The two leading edible oilsin the world are Palm andSoya Oil. For most of thepast half century, SoybeanOil has been thebenchmark for edible oils.But with increasingsubstantial plantings allover the world andparticularly in South EastAsia, Palm Oil productionhas been steadily increasing and now exceeds that of soya. The marginbecomes even more pronounced when palm kernel oil is taken into account.Palm Oil is today the leading edible oil produced in the world. The relative growth in importance of palm oil has been relentless for decades. Rape is the next most popular edible oil after palm and soy, followed by sunflower, cottonseed, groundnut, palm kernel and coconut oils. THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 11 ©
  12. 12. rice11Rice has fed more people over a longer period of time than any other crop. Asfar back as 2500 B.C. rice has beendocumented in the history books as a sourceof food and for tradition as well. Beginning inChina and the surrounding areas, itscultivation spread throughout Sri Lanka, andIndia. It was then passed onto Greece andareas of the Mediterranean. Rice spreadthroughout Southern Europe and to some ofNorth Africa. From Europe rice was brought tothe New World. From Portugal it was broughtinto Brazil and from Spain to Central andSouth America. Rice could be taken too many parts of the world due to its versatility. It is able to grow in the desert conditions of Saudi Arabia, in the wetland deltas of Southeast Asia in the flooded rice plains which we are most familiar with. The Robert McAngus Group deals with all types of rice that are grown in bulk globally and can offer competitive pricing and delivery THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 12 ©
  13. 13. coalCoal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock normallyoccurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams. Theharder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphicrock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal iscomposed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, with smaller quantities of sulfur, oxygen and nitrogenRMG buys and sells all types of coals and anthracites for both domestic and powergenerating boilers, Steam Coal from Indonesia High Quality Metallurgical Coke &Steam Coal from Colombia, contact us with your needs and requirements.

  14. 14. heavy melting scrap ironHMS is Heavy Melting Scrap. It is the generic term for most types of heavy steelscrap, normally cut to a size not exceeding 1.5m x 0.5m. It consists of cut lengthsof pipe, re-bar, angles, steel poles, H or I beams, ships plate and so on. HMS 1 isthe term for heavier scrap which has a density of at least 0.7 tons per cubicmeter, whereas HMS 2 would be lighter steel scrap such as thin wall tubing (egbicycle frames), sheet scrap less than 3.2mm thick and so on. The two arenormally sold together with a ratio of 80/20 heavy and light, and so this wouldbe the typical product being referred to when scrap dealers and traders talkabout HMS. HMS is the description used worldwide, with Americans trading asimilar type of scrap called ISRI grade 201. 201 is shorter (1m x 0.5m) and shouldbe at least 6mm thick, making it a slightly superior grade to HMS.The Robert McAngus Group buys and sells HMS Heavy Melting Scrap contact usfor the latest prices and availability.

  15. 15. portland cementConsidered to be the most common type of cement in use today, Portland cement is utilized for all sorts of building projects. The cement is used as an ingredient in materials used for sidewalks, buildings and as a binder between other substances, such as stone or brick. The basic formula for Portland cement appears to have originated in the late 18th century and was first identified by that name in the early 19th century. The name for the dry cement product is derived from the similarity of the finished product to Portland stone. This type of building product was quarried in England in the early 19th century. Using methods that were somewhat like the procedurefor making Roman cement, Joseph Aspdin was awarded a patent in 1822 forcreating the cement. The original formula called for the use of cement clinker,and a small amount of other ingredients. The stability of the product madethe cement ideal for use in the creation of mortar and other binding materials.Portland Cement (ASTM Types)ASTM C 150 defines Portland cement as "hydraulic cement (cement that notonly hardens by reacting with water but also forms a water-resistant product)produced by pulverizing clinkersconsisting essentially of hydrauliccalcium silicates, usually containing oneor more of the forms of calcium sulfateas an inter ground addition." Clinkersare nodules (diameters, 0.2-1.0 inch [5-25 mm]) of a sintered material that isproduced when a raw mixture ofpredetermined composition is heatedto high temperature. The low cost andwidespread availability of the limestone,shale’s, and other naturally occurring materials make Portland cement one ofthe lowest-cost materials widely used over the last century throughout the world THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 15 ©
