In the ancient coffee forests on the Ethiopian plateau, Goat herder Kaldi was taking care of business trying to keep his goats alive - when he made an observation. He noticed that after eating a particular plant (coffea arabica), his goats would suddenly dance like they were in a Soul Train line, and he couldn’t get them to sleep at night. Kaldi reported his findings to the local monastery, where the abbot came up with the genius idea of making a drink with the berries from this plant. The abbot found that the drink kept him alert and able to stay up for long stretches of time. From there the word about this magical bean drink spread ... and centuries later we line up in coffee shops all over the globe to experience a little (or a lot of) the amazing affects the magical bean has on our minds, bodies and souls.
