September 29, 2014, is National Coffee Day! How did coffee become so popular?
According to legend, a sixth-century Ethiopian goatherd discovered his goats frolicking from one coffee shrub to another. He realized the coffee berries had a stimulating effect. He began to experiment with the seeds. A whole century later, brewed coffee was developed in Arabia. Other sources say it only goes back as far as the 13th century but regardless, once it was discovered, the popularity of coffee grew exponentially!
