Actually my mind went the direction of Scotland and sheep stories when I
read thier goat story. :)
I did. The National Geographic article isn't the first time I have heard the
story. I get the sense that coffee may have grown wild before being
officially cultivated around 1000 A.D.
Did anyone else find this a little amusing. :)
"Goats will eat anything. Just ask Kaldi the legendary Ethiopian goatherd.
Kaldi, the story goes, noticed his herd dancing from one coffee shrub to
another, grazing on the cherry-red berries containing the beans. He copped a
few himself and was soon frolicking with his flock."
