Have you ever wondered where coffee came from? According to legend, a sixth-century Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi discovered his goats frolicking from one coffee shrub to another. He recognized that the coffee berries they were eating had a stimulating effect, and he began to experiment with the seeds. A century later, brewed coffee emerged in Arabia and the popularity of coffee grew at an exponential rate. And today, over 400 billion cups of coffee are consumed each year. It is a world commodity that is second only to oil.

So today, don’t forget to take a coffee break (or two) to celebrate this historical and important beverage with us at Birch!
