According to a popular legend, coffee was first discovered by accident by an Arabian goatherd, Kaldi, who found his goats dancing joyously after eating berries from a bush at the Arabian Peninsula. This place, today, is known as Ethiopia. In fact, recent botanic evidence suggests that coffee originated on the plateau of Central Ethiopia. Curiosity drove him to try eating the berries, then he too found that these berries got an effect of renewing energy. Monasteries who heard about this story and tried the berries to be able to awake during the extended hours of prayer. They reconstituted these berries in water, ate the fruit, and drank the liquid to enable them to awaken more extended time for prayer. They, subsequently, dried the berries to transport to other monks around the world. This gave a birth to coffee.
