Have you ever asked yourself how it is that humans discovered coffee? This is our take. Grab a cup of joe and enjoy.
Once upon a time in a land far, far away, a group of goats stumbled upon a magical plant with bright red berries. After munching on the berries, the goats became incredibly energetic and hyperactive. The local people, being the curious sorts that they are, decided to try the berries themselves and found that they too became energized after consuming them. And thus, coffee was born!
From there, coffee spread to the rest of Africa and the Middle East, where it was embraced by the Muslim community and became an important part of their religious practices. But not everyone was a fan of this newfangled drink. In fact, when coffee made its way to Europe in the 16th century, some leaders were so scared of its effects on the population that they banned it altogether.
But, as we all know, you can't keep a good cup of joe down, and despite these setbacks, coffee's popularity continued to grow. Fast forward to the 17th and 18th centuries, when coffee plantations were established in the Americas and coffee became a valuable commodity. And now, here we are, enjoying delicious cups of coffee every single day. So raise your mug and cheers to the incredible journey of coffee!
