Now let’s dive into a history lesson surrounding coffee. According to historical records, Coffee is originally from Ethiopia, the discovery of coffee in Africa comes with a very nice story. Around the 700s AD, a herd of goats were acting very strangely as if they had a lot of energy. Their owner, Kaldi, discovered that they were eating a sort of red bean and then he immediately concluded that it was the cause of their strange behaviour. Kaldi decided to share his findings with a monk who then threw the beans into the fire after trying them and the pleasing aroma that came from it was just wonderful.
