Wenago

Wenago

Ethiopia

Legend has it that coffee was discovered in Ethiopia in the 9th century by a goat-herder named Kaldi. He noticed that his goats became hyper after eating cherries from the coffee tree, so he tried it himself. A monk approached Kaldi after he consumed the cherries and took some to his monastery where he roasted and brewed the coffee to share with other monks. As a result, they were able to stay awake during long nights of prayer and since then coffee has been widely accepted as a stimulant drink.
