There is a well known legend about the origins of Coffee and that legend starts in Ethiopia. It is said that a goat herder named Kaldi noticed that when his flock ate those bright red cherries of a certain bush that they became much more energetic. He brought those berries back to an Islamic Monk in a nearby Monastery who disapproved of them and threw them into a fire, from which a beautiful and enticing aroma billowed.
Of course, from this story we can gather that good old Kaldi didn’t listen to the old monk and went about his business and created a thriving coffee business!!
It is said that all the coffee grown in the world today is a descendant from the coffee of this region and Rounton Coffee love our Ethiopian Coffees.
