Kaldi Ethiopian Boy who Discovered Coffee the First Time

Khaldi was a legendary Ethiopian goatherd who discovered the coffee plant around 850 AD, according to popular legend, after which it entered the Islamic world than the rest of the world.

Khaldi, noticing that when his goats were nibbling on the bright red berries of a certain tree, they became more energetic (jumping goats), chewed on the fruit himself. Khaldi shared his discovery with the other people at the monastery, and knowledge of the energizing berries began to spread. As word moved east and coffee reached the Arabian peninsula growing beans in the 15th century and years passed by throughout and made it across Europe in the 17th century it began a journey which would bring these beans spreading across the globe. The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world’s first cup of coffee.[1]
