The origin of coffee
The history of coffee begins in 850 AD, so it is the discovery of the shepherd Khaldi. He used to walk his goats in the fields to feed them on plants. According to Khaldi legend, the goats would have eaten the coffee cherries and been agitated. Indeed, coffee is a stimulant and, with heavy consumption, we feel restless.
This shepherd had decided to bring his coffee back to the monks of the city to tell them about his famous discovery. The monks then consumed it in their turn in order to stay awake and to say their prayers ...
The birth of roasted coffee, a legend? The monks, with high consumption, would have eaten the cherries of coffee trees and spit out the stones, which would have ended up reaching the fire. The beans, which had a very good smell on contact with the flame, immediately aroused the curiosity of his monks, and that is how the roasted coffee was born ...
Okay, but what is the pure origin of coffee cherry? We tend to be wrong, since this is Ethiopia! It was in this country that the first coffee plant, Koffea Arabica, was grown. Its leaves were eaten through an infusion.
And what about Yemen in all this history? The Yemenis would have taken Ethiopian plants to make a trade of roasted coffee in Harrar, market place. This is how the colonization of coffee took place from country to country from Yemen, passing through their port of embarkation, Mocha.
