The history and legend of coffee

 The history and legend of coffee

Coffee is the world's most widely sold agricultural product, but it wasn't always like that.

According to legend, there were times when coffee was consumed only by a goat and its shepherd. Perhaps not all of the legends are true, but one thing is certain: Ethiopia is the home of coffee. The cradle of coffee culture is Ethiopia. It makes up 40% of its exports, yet they can proudly say that more is sold domestically than exported abroad.

Drinking coffee and the coffee ceremony are part of everyday life for emperors and beggars alike.
In Ethiopia, coffee is a mainstay of social life. Relatives, neighbors and friends gather several times a day to drink 'Bunná' (the Amharic name for coffee) together.

It also says a lot that coffee is called the same all over the world (with the exception of Ethiopia). Coffee, Kaffe, Café, Kafa and the like. This is because the names refer to the original home of coffee, Kaffa, the coffee-producing region of Ethiopia. Well, let's see what the legend of coffee covers:


An Ethiopian goat herder, Kaldi, discovered the specialty of coffee beans.

Grazing his flock on the Abyssinian Plateau (Kaffa region, Ethiopia), he noticed that one of his goats was eating a red berry fruit. After eating it, the goat jumped around with unprecedented energy.


Thanks to the resourceful shepherd Kaldi, he himself tasted this fruit and was surprised to find that it gave him energy and unprecedented strength.

After discovering the fruit's potential, he took it to the nearest abbey. The monks believed that the coffee must be the work of the devil and threw it into the flames. However, the coffee beans, instead of being burnt, bounced off the fire amid fireworks-like crackles. Now adorned in pleasant brown colors.

The monks flocked to the smell of freshly roasted coffee and examined the coffee beans in amazement. Because of the unexpected results, they changed their minds and saw the tiny brown seeds as a gift from God.

They quickly collected it, hid it in a vessel, and poured holy water over it.

After a few days, the water was tasted and the history of coffee begins here.
