ETHIOPIA - YIRGACHEFFE


Regular price $20.00

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!!
