The Battle of the Beanstalk, from War to Peace
The story goes that a long, long, long time ago a great war was fought of which almost no one has memories, it was such a tragic event that, somehow, modern technology through radio waves helped to erase those events from people's minds, but nevertheless, there are still those who preferred to keep them, to be alert in case it happened again.
Apparently at a certain time an evil leader took over the government because he wanted to ban coffee beans, which did not seem good to the people, since his population was one of the largest consumers of coffee in the world, this president could not drink coffee because he was allergic, he was very selfish and evil, so much so that it became famous a story that as a child, he was playing with his cousins, and they would not let him touch the ball, so he grabbed a pair of scissors and punched the ball so that no one else would play. That's how evil this character was.
Well they were very hard years, from the shadows people resisted the orders of this tyrant, they armed something that was called the resistance, a united front of citizens that finally unleashed a great war with thousands of affected individuals, but the defense of coffee and with it the freedom of the people to decide what to take in their lives was fundamental, so little by little this movement was winning battles, until reaching a final stage, where the last troops of the government defenders, were concentrated on a hill around the presidential palace, while the crowd marched in the streets protesting and advancing towards this place, which had been assigned the code name of the bean, hence the battle fought that day, is known as the battle of the bean.
My grandfather was there, he tells me in detail everything that happened, so that I will always be attentive and defend my freedom no matter that the rest of the world decided to forget it. According to the tender old man, on the hill was concentrated all the military might of the government, reason why the citizens could never win a normal battle with the few weapons they had, so they preferred to bet on peace and make a peaceful protest, with which they aspired to convince the troops to lay down their weapons and surrender the dictator.
The strategy was simple, but ingenious, they used the best weapon they had, something so powerful that it is capable of creating historical events, I am referring of course to our beloved coffee. The people surrounded the entire hill in the late afternoon, but instead of attacking, they simply decided to sit on the ground and began to make bonfires before the surprised gaze of the soldiers as night fell, the citizens did not have a single weapon, so as not to tempt the soldiers to do something crazy that would end badly without a doubt, for hours they told jokes and played, while the military in a constant state of alert felt more and more thirsty, without food and sleepy, since obviously they could not drink coffee.
Around 4 o'clock in the morning, the leader of the resistance ordered that in each bonfire they began to pour coffee, I am talking about at least 500 bonfires, with thousands of people in each one of them drinking coffee, this undoubtedly filled the whole atmosphere around the palace with an exquisite aroma of freshly brewed coffee, In a few minutes the aroma invaded the entire interior of the palace, reaching the presidential office where a leader highly allergic to coffee was trembling with fear and anxiety, before the disaster that he himself had provoked.
The president knew that the support of the military for his madness would not last long and that finally the people of the country, fueled by the hope that coffee brought to their lives, would conquer victory. So he waited no longer and made the most difficult decision of his life, with the first rays of dawn illuminating the sky, the terrible president decided to raise the white flag of surrender at the government palace, sealing the triumph of the resistance in what is known today as the battle of the bean.
