The Origins
(an Ethiopian legend)

herder Kaldi
an unknown number of goats
the mysterious, red berries
Legend has it that Kaldi, a goat-herder from Ethiopia in the 9th century went out to search for some of his missing goats, only to find them energetically dancing and eating the berries of a small tree which he had never seen before.

Wondering what could be the cause of these effects on the goats he decided to try the berries himself, feeling a rush of vitality come to him a little while after eating the berries. After this beautiful experience, he became determined to show this new great discovery to the world.
(unfortunately when he brought it to the local monks they disapproved and burned the fruit!)
but it smelled so good they changed their mind

so we got the brew...

WHAT  About 


The first time whole milk was added into a coffee was by Johan Nieuhoff, a Dutch ambassador in China in 1660.
