The Art of Coffee Making

Kaldi an ethiopian goatherder, watched in amazement when his flock nibbled on the bright red berries of a certain bush - they turned into dancing goats! Kaldi chewed the berries himself and his exhilaration prompted him to take the berries to a holy man in a nearby monastery. This holy man disapproved of their use and threw the berries into a fire which caused an enticing aroma. The roasted beans were then raked from the embers ground up and dissolved in hot water to produce history's first cup of coffee.
