Oriental Coffee and Tea - The story so far
So the legend goes, that Kaldi (an Ethiopian goat herder) noticing that when his flock nibbled on the bright red cherries of a certain bush they became more energetic, chewed on the fruit himself. His exhilaration prompted him to bring the cherries to an Islamic monk in a nearby monastery, but the monk disapproved of their use and threw them on the fire, from which an enticing aroma billowed. The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world’s first cup of coffee.
