History of Coffee: Episode 1 "How Coffee was Discovered"
We don't really know exactly who discovered coffee. BUT! There is a story that has been circulated for years about a goat herder from Ethiopia. Kaldi, the goat herder from Ethiopia, noticed his goats were jumping around (dancing!) in the middle of the night after they had been munching on a native tree that no one really paid much attention to. That plant turned out to be the coffee plant! Upon observing increased activity and unusual behaviour in his goats, Kaldi tried eating some of the plant's berries, and found it gave him extra energy and a feeling of happiness. Kaldi continued to eat the berries, gaining a reputation as the Happiest Herder in Arabia, and the founder of coffee!
