The history of coffee has many versions, from the story of an Ethiopian herder named Kaldi who wondered why his berry-nibbling goats were getting frisky; to a 15th Century Sufi who found coffee drove away fatigue.
Read on and discover how what was once a goat's favorite snack has become one of the world's most popular drinks.
It was not until the early 1400s, that brewed coffee was discovered. This was about the same time that metal pots, in which water could be boiled over a fire, appeared in that part of the East. This made it possible for the coffee sun tea to be made more quickly by boiling leaves, cherries, and seeds in water. The combination of fire and coffee seeds most probably led to the creation of coffee. Perhaps a pot of tea boiled dry or tipped into the fire, giving the world the first (very rustic), brewed coffee from roasted beans.
