The history of coffee is diverse and full of mysteries and myths. However, the most popular coffee origin speaks of an Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi. One day herding his goats on the high lands of Ethiopia Kaldi noticed that his goats were showing unusual behavior after eating Coffee berries. They were energized and alert. Kaldi was curious about the beans and took them to the nearest monastery. The Abbot, belleving them to be the work of the devil threw them in to the fire. This released the aroma of the coffee, the berries were rescued from the flares, and the monks learned how to make coffee. It was then considered a gift from God as it was heiping them to stay awake during their overnight prayers.
To this day, Ethiopia Is considered the birthplace of coffee ! Today, over 12 million people in Ethiopia are involved in the cultivation and picking of coffee, and coffee remains a central part of Ethiopian culture.
