The Perfect Cup from the Birth Place of Coffee
Sometime in the 9th century and in the Ethiopian province of Keffa, the shepherd Khaldi was intrigued by the fact that his flock of goats tended to become lively and more joyful every time they ate the ripe berries off the coffee plant. His discovery had opened the avenue for the use and spread of coffee across the world making it now the world's second most traded commodity, taking a backseat only to petroleum, with the coffee market earning nearly $60 billion dollars annually.
While Ethiopia is among the top ten exporters of coffee, it is uniquely the highest consumer of the coffee it produces. The Ethiopian coffee ceremony is primarily a spiritual event in which coffee is served for healing, decompression, relaxation, and for reflecting on life and counting blessings. It is also social event where family, neighbors and friends gather and share their thoughts, feelings, concerns, gossip and community events. The Ethiopian tradition dictates one should not drink coffee alone.
