coffee was first discovered in the 15th century by a shepherd in Ethiopia. He noticed that his goats were more energetic after eating certain berries and he tried them himself. He found that they made him more alert and less sleepy. Word spread of this new “miracle berry” and coffee became an instant hit.
Coffee quickly spread to the Middle East where it became a staple drink. From there, it made its way to Europe where it was initially met with some skepticism. However, once people realized how delicious and invigorating coffee was, it quickly became one of the most popular drinks in the world.
Today, coffee is enjoyed by millions of people every day and is one of the most traded commodities in the world. It truly is a global drink!
