A bit about coffee
According to popular belief, coffee was first discovered in Ethiopia, West Africa. Kaldi, a local goat herder, was watching his flock as usual when he noticed his goats were acting peculiarly playful and unusually euphoric.
Kaldi later found out the goats had been eating bright red berries from a random shrub he’d never noticed before. Curiosity got the better of Kaldi, so he ate some of the berries and found they gave him renewed energy and attentiveness.
This was a miracle! News of this amazing, energy-giving fruit spread fast throughout Africa. Even Monks tried it, and noticing its powerful, stimulating effect, they distributed it to other monasteries, near and far. Sadly, the berries didn’t survive these long journeys, however, the monks later learnt that all they needed to do was dry out the berries and they’d endure the long trips to lands afar.
On arrival at their destination, the monks put the dried berries in water, ate the fruit, and drank the liquid. They came to the conclusion that drinking the beverage and fruit gave them even more energy, and allowed them to pray for longer.
From then on, coffee berries became a big hit. Transported from Ethiopia to the Arabian Peninsula, the coffee berries were first grown in what is today the country of Yemen. Next, coffee found its way to Turkey where it was roasted for the first time over open fires. The roasted beans were crushed, and then boiled in water, becoming a basic version of the beverage we know and love today.
Coffee houses spread fast throughout Europe during the early 17th century and turned into centres for intellectual exchange and commerce. And BOOM. Coffee – the vital beverage enjoyed by the majority of the world today – was born!
These days, coffee is grown across the globe. Whether it’s the islands of the Pacific or the Caribbean, in South America, Africa or Asia, all can trace their heritage to the trees in the ancient coffee forests on the Ethiopian plateau.
