Have you ever wondered how coffee was discovered and where Kaldi’s coffee got its unusual name? Believe it or not, there is a relationship between the two. Here is the story of Kaldi, as taken off of the back of a package of Kaldi’s Fair Trade Organic Natural High Coffee:
In the hills of 6th Century Ethiopia, a young goatherd named Kaldi searched the land for his lost goats. In due time, he found them by a bush, eating its dazzling red berries. Kaldi’s normally sluggish flock began to prance about with vigor. They ran up hillsides. They danced around trees. Kaldi reasoned that the coffee berries prompt his goats’ high spirits. What’s good for the goat is good for the goatherd, he thought, and chewed some berries himself. Soon, he too began to prance about with unusual vigor. It didn’t take long for those coffee beans – and word of their stimulating effects – to travel the world.
