It's 850 C.E. and a goat-herder named Kaldi (or Khalid) is in the mountains of the Yirgacheffe region and he notices his goats nibbling on the berries of a small plant. They're mood noticeably changes and so he tries this cherry for himself. Ecstatic about his discovery, he runs to town yelling, "Kokayi! Kokayi!", literally meaning, "Summon the people!". Unfortunately, the Sufi priest did not approve and he threw the cherries in the fire. But then as the fire grew, the people enticed became enticed by the aroma, the coffee beans were collected from the embers, and they mixed them with water. And so the cup of coffee was born!!
While the story Kaldi and his dancing goats is legend, the coffee from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia is legendary. Stop by our cafe or order some of this wonderful new naturally processed coffee today!
**Additionally, this coffee won a Bronze medal at the Golden Bean North America Roaster Competition this year!!**
Unwashed, natural process. Notes of anise, sweet chocolate, cherries, and a slightly earthy finish.
