What we do
So what's with the Goat?
The Ethiopian Highlands, often referred to as ’the roof of Africa’ is home to Lake Tana – the source of the Blue Nile. It is also a part of the continent where coffee trees have grown for thousands of years and where they are still cultivated today. Legend has it that Kaldi, a goat herder from the region, first discovered the effects of Caffeine when goats from his herd started eating red ‘cherries’ from an unknown tree. He noticed that they became spirited and refused to settle down and sleep at night. Kaldi reported this curious behaviour to monks in a local monastery who experimented with the berries and soon confirmed their energising properties. Traders carried the beans eastwards into Arabia – from where coffee began its journey to become one of the most widely consumed hot beverages in human history. Today, coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world… And all thanks to some hungry goats.
