One night he awoke from a distressing dream to discover his heard of goats were behaving very strangely. They were all frolicking around each other as if 'dancing'.
After a while, Kaldi picked a basket of the berries and took them to a near by monastery to share with the monks. It was soon discovered that the cherry-like fruit, once opened, contained two beans. The monks noticed that their consumption energized them, and made them more alert. They were able to hold longer prayer vigils and to study for longer periods of time and now no one fell asleep!
The knowledge of the energizing effects of the beans slowly began to spread. As word moved east and coffee reach the Arabian Peninsula, it began a journey which would spread its reputation across the globe!
Today coffee is grown in a multitude of countries around the world. Whether it is Asia or Africa, Central or South America, the islands of the Caribbean and the Pacific, all can trace their heritage to the trees in the ancient coffee forests in the Ethiopian Plateau.
