About Coffee 6

Kaldi, a simple goatherd, observed his goats getting "frisky" after ingesting red berries from a nearby tree.
Kaldi reported this to the Abbot of the nearby monastery, who in turn discovered that adding boiling water to the berries made a potent drink that allowed him to stay awake throughout long hours of prayer... and the rest, as they say, is history.
The word coffee is derived from the Arabic word for wine, kaveh - and while we can't be certain how true Kaldi the Goatherd's nice little story is, we are sure that the very first commercial cultivation of coffee, in the 15th century, was reported in Arabia. Before long, it found its way to Egypt, Syria and Turkey- where it was known as the "wine of Araby".
It was in the 16th century that coffee was brought to Europe by travellers- and by 1650, the first coffee shop in the UK opened in Oxford.
