Story of Coffee
Ethiopia is considered to be the birthplace of coffee. It is home to the famous “Kaldi”, the goat herder who supposedly first discovered coffee’s ‘caffeinated’ qualities. Coffee was first grown in Ethiopia before being exported to Yemen, just across the Red Sea from it. Yemen in turn transported coffee plants all over the world.
There are two main species of coffee plants in the world: Coffea arabica (Arabica) and Coffea canephora (Robusta). Arabica is distinctly higher quality than robusta but has a lower yield and less resistant to diseases. The bulk of speciality coffee is arabica.
