ABOUT ETHIOPIAN COFFEE

The first coffee trees are discovered in Ethiopia. It is evident that coffee originated where wild coffee tree forests are still the primary harvesting source. In at least one version of the story, the discovery of coffee owes much to the gastronomical adventures of goats and their mythical herder, Kaldi. The young boy noticed the excited prancing of his goats that had wandered up a hill to eat the leaves and red beans of nearby shrubs. Kaldi’s own curiosity got the better of him, and he ventured to try chewing the somewhat bitter leaves and beans himself. Happy with its stimulating effect, he shared his findings with a monk who, as this version goes, went on to perfect the art of roasting, grinding, and brewing the drink for fellow monks. Coffee kept them awake and alert in their long hours of prayer and devotion, and it was quickly adopted as the beverage of choice among the clergymen. By the first half of the 20th century, coffee was widely drunk among the nobility, and travelers also noted its availability in the homes that hosted them. Ethiopia is now unequivocally recognized as the birthplace of coffee, whose name itself is regarded by most to have been derived from Kaffa in the south west of the country, where coffee still grows wild in mountain forests. Preserved in local gene banks and research centers such as the Jimma Agricultural Research Center and the Institute of Biodiversity Conservation (in the southwestern town of Limu), the variety of coffee beans is registered to be over 6,000. This wealth of diversity attests to Ethiopia’s claim of origins, and links the survival of the world’s largest genetic pool to its adequate conservation.
