There are many stories surrounding coffee. The next one is one of the most recognized. Coffee comes from ancient Ethiopia known as Abisinia, known today as Yemen. Towards the XIII century, thus not exactly dated, the story with more power is the one narrated by a shepherd called Kaldy, who after witnessing a strange behavior in his goats that had eaten small red beans, he took them to a monastery where the monks prepared a drink with it, but when they tasted the drink it was so bad tasting that they threw the beans into a burning flame.
The beans began to roast and released a very pleasant aroma that captivated the monks. One of them had the idea of taking the roasted beans out of the flame and preparing a drink. This is how the first cup of coffee was born. They called it Gahwe; a name given to plant infusions. The drink became so popular it spread across the entire territory. By the end of the XVII century, coffee was brought to America, long after it stopped being referred to as the drink of the devil, after it was blessed by Pope Clement VII in the XVI century.
