CoffeePeople drink more than 1.6 billion cups of coffee every day all around the world That's enough to fill up three big football stadiums and still have more coffee left! but where did this amazing drink come from a long time ago around the 11th century There was a Muslim man from a Ethiopia His name was called was Khaldi He used to take care of the goats One day he saw that the goats were acting crazy they kept on running around with a lot of energy Khaldi found out that the goat started getting excited when they ate a certain berry The berry was bright redThese berries were coffee berries, which are also known as coffee cherries Khaldi decided to taste the coffee berries He ate the berries and he got all excited and noticed that he had a lot more energy just like the goats and That is how coffee was discovered Now you might be confused since we make our coffee from brown coffee beans Now where do those brown coffee beans come from?
