The Birthplace of Arabica: A Historical Perspective
Unearth the secrets of Ethiopia's historical connection to Arabica coffee. Legend has it that Kaldi, a curious Ethiopian goat herder, stumbled upon the extraordinary properties of coffee when his goats, energised by nibbling on vibrant red berries, sparked his curiosity. Upon tasting the berries himself, Kaldi experienced an invigorating energy, marking the serendipitous discovery that would define the rich history of Ethiopian coffee.
From Kaldi's revelatory moment, the cultivation of Arabica beans spread throughout Ethiopia, weaving into the fabric of the nation's culture. Coffee evolved into a cherished beverage, celebrated through communal rituals and intricate ceremonies.
