Coffee according to the legend

According to the legend, coffee originated from Africa in A.D. 800. Kaldi, a legendary Ethiopian goatherd, noticed his herd dancing from one coffee shrub to another, grazing on the cherry-red berries containing the beans and picked he tried the berries himself and felt the same.

The red cherries which the sheep ate and become very active were taken home and the berries were the fruit of the coffee tree.

Sometime later, a passing monk observed Kaldi and the goats. When Kaldi told him about the berries, the monk thought they might be the answer to his prayers — literally. It seems that the monk was always falling asleep in the middle of prayers. When he ate the berries, he stayed awake.

Another tale which has been around for some time involves an Arabian who uses coffee beans to survive an exile and was discovered near the town of Mocha and thus it was refer to coffee as Mocha.

Coffee soon became the accepted drink of the Arab world. For a long time, it was traded locally.

As everyone know it, originated in Arabia where the first roasted coffee beans were brewed around A.D. 1000. By the thirteenth century, Muslims drank coffee religiously and wherever the Islam went, coffee went too.
