It May Have Been Discovered by Goat!
Legend said that a goat is the first one who discovered coffee beans! No, I’m not kidding at all. It does sound funny and impossible but it’s what I read. It is said that Kaldi, a lonely goat herder in ninth-century Ethiopia, discovered the energizing and invigorating effects of coffee when he saw his goats getting excited after eating some berries from a tree.
Kaldi told the abbot of the local monastery about this and the abbot came up with the idea of drying and boiling the berries to make a beverage. He threw the berries into the fire, whence the unmistakable aroma of what we now know as coffee drifted through the night air. The now roasted beans were raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water: so was made the world’s first cup of coffee.
It Was Believed It is “Sinful” Drinks
Because of the addictiveness, there are some periods that were considered sinful drinks by some religions. Like alcohol, has a long history of prohibition, attracting fear and suspicion and religious disquiet and hypocrisy. Not just by some religions, even the scholars and the jurists too.
Known as “The Devil’s Cup”
It was when coffee comes to Europe, European travelers are curious about the mysterious and mystical lands of the east, was of an equally mysterious, exotic, and intoxicating liquor. To Catholics it was the ‘bitter invention of Satan’, carrying the whiff of Islam, and it seemed suspiciously like a substitute for wine as used in the Eucharist; in any event, it was outlawed.
It was until Pope Clement VIII intervene and said, “This devil’s drink is so delicious… we should cheat the devil by baptizing it!” From then on, it has been dubbed the devil’s drink or the devil’s cup.
