Dubai Coffee museum attracts more and more visitors
The History of Coffee
They say it all started in the Ethiopian highlands 100’s of years ago. The legend of Kaldi says that coffee was discovered when a goat ate some unknown berries from a tree and then became alert through the night. A drink was prepared from these berries by worshippers in the local monastery which was found to help them stay awake during the long hours of prayers.
This discovery started spreading rapidly until it reached the Arabian peninsula where the
Arabs have taken this newly found drink, coffee, with them around the world.
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 or Pacific, all can trace their heritage to the trees in the ancient coffee forests on the Ethiopian plateau.
