The legend behind the goat
Long ago there was a farmer named Kaldi, who herded goats. One day he was high up in the Ethiopian Highlands when he saw his goats were bouncing and skipping around. Kaldi noticed them eating bright red cherries from a tree. Kaldi then tried the cherries and realized; he too had energy that lasted through the night. The next morning, Kaldi looked inside the cherries and discovered the secret to his newfound energy - a magical coffee bean. He was so excited, he told his fellow Monks the heavens had dropped magical coffee beans from the sky. Word then spread near and far, and so the rest is history…
