One day, Kaldi, an Abyssinian goatherd, who lived around 850 AD, observed his goats behaving in abnormally exuberant manner, skipping, rearing on their hind-legs and bleating loudly. He noticed they were eating the bright red berries that grew on the green bushes nearby.

Kaldi tried a few himself, and soon felt a novel sense of elation. He filled his pockets with the berries and ran home to announce his discovery to his wife. ‘They are heaven-sent,’ she declared. ‘You must take them to the Monks in the monastery.

Kaldi presented the chief Monk with a handful of berries and related his discovery of their miraculous effect. ‘Devil’s work! ’ exclaimed the monk, and hurled the berries in the fire.

Within minutes the monastery filled with the heavenly aroma of roasting (coffee) beans, and the other monks gathered to investigate. The beans were raked from the fire and crushed to extinguish the embers. The Monk ordered the grains to be placed in the ewer and covered with hot water to preserve their goodness. That night the monks sat up drinking the rich and fragrant brew, and from that day vowed they would drink it daily to keep them awake during their long, nocturnal devotions.

Today those self-same berries, dried, roasted and ground, have become the world’s second most popular non-alcoholic beverage after tea.

Coffee has always been one of the things Ethiopia is considered to have contributed to the world, if not the first. Then onwards, Ethiopia has been exporting, be it in a traditional way or modern business manner, the finest quality coffee to the rest of the world. And Country Trading PLC is proud to keep that tradition of exporting the most unique and fascinating Ethiopian coffees.
