The History of CoffeeDespite the countless legends that surround the origin of coffee, it is still uncertainwhen the berries of the plant were used for the first time to make the drink with theintense flavour and energising properties.The tale held dear by the lovers of coffee tells of an Abyssinian goat herder, Kaldi,who noticed that his goats had become particularly lively after eating the leaves andred berries from a certain plant.He therefore picked a few berries and took them to the nearest monastery where,with the roasted beans mixed with water, he prepared a hot invigorating drink,which helped the monks to stay awake during their prayer vigils.Coffee, which had been popular in Arabia since the 13th century, was shipped toVenice at the beginning of the 17th century and from there began its conquest ofthe western world.
