Coffee was discovered over eight centuries ago by an Ethiopian sheep herder who noticed his sheep behaving oddly excited one day after having eaten bright red berries off a nearby shrub. After experiencing the energizing effects of these berries for himself, the sheep herder knew that he was on to something special that needed to be shared with urgency.
The legend goes that after revealing this revelation to a nearby monastery, the monks disregarded the beans as nothing more than the work of the devil and discarded them in the fire where they began to roast. It was only the alluring aroma of roasting coffee beans that persuaded the monks to revisit the beans. After brewing these great smelling beans into a warm beverage, the monks realized what a powerful drink they had created.
What started as an innocent discovery has led to one of the world’s greatest revolutions in beverages. Nowadays, coffee is the one of the world’s most frequently consumed beverages.
