Story about the History of Coffee
Ethiopia’s most popular coffee legends has been usually described as this:
One day, on a plateau near a monastery in Abyssinia, a shepherd was tending his sheep. He saw that the goats began to jump about, almost to jump, in a very high mood, which was a strange behavior for his flock. He found small shrubs to be an exciting source. Then he decided to taste the bright red berries himself, and he felt the thrill of coffee cherries.
The shepherd was startled by the discovery, filled his pocket with coffee cherries, and hurried home to tell his wife. She called the discovery a “godsend” and suggested he share coffee berries with the monks.
