When coffee was first discovered – 11th Century
Back in the 11th century, the very first coffee plant was discovered in Ethiopia. Coffee leaves were boiled in water and the resulting concoction was thought to have medicinal properties. But, what really led to the discovery of this magical plant? Ethiopians believe in a legendary goat herder named Kaldi, who found his goats full of energy after eating the berries from this undiscovered plant. Kaldi, tried it himself and had a comparable response.
