The Exotic Origins Of Coffee new
Coffee has a rich history with many legends surrounding its origins. One popular legend tells of an Arabian shepherd named Kaldi who discovered the stimulating effects of coffee cherries after observing his goats acting in an unusual, playful manner after consuming the cherries. However, evidence suggests that coffee originated in the plateaus of central Ethiopia and was first cultivated in Yemen in the 6th century. As the popularity of coffee spread, it made its way to many exotic regions around the world, including Hawaii, Jamaica, Kenya, Cuba, Ethiopia, Italy, Guatemala, France, Colombia, Yemen, and Java, each with their own unique coffee beans and flavors.
