The History Culture of Coffee in Africa
In the 6th century, a Shepherd named Kadi went to the new grassland to graze in Kaffa on the Ethiopian plateau in Africa. He suddenly found that the sheep were jumping and excited. Even at night, the sheep could not sleep, so he ran to the abbey of Abyssinia for help. After an investigation by the abbot and friars, it was found that the goat was particularly excited because it ate the red fruit on the bushes; So the abbot picked it back, boiled it into the soup, and drank it. Sure enough, he couldn't sleep all night. So the abbot distributed the soup to the sleepy monks in the evening worship. The effect was excellent, and the refreshing medicine spread. This is the origin of "coffee".
It may be this characteristic that made coffee widely spread in monasteries and was brought to Yemen by Ethiopian troops in many invasions. Coffee spread to the distant holy places Mecca and Medina. A large number of pilgrims poured into these cities from all over the world, tasted coffee for the first time, and then took it back to their own country. In this way, coffee spread all over the world. Muslims are the living land of the spread of coffee. Because they prohibit drinking alcoholic beverages, coffee soon became a part of their lives.
