According to the lore, it was discovered on the Ethiopian highlands by a goat herder who discovered the the fruit of the coffee plant had a stimulating effect on his goats.
So he decided to experiment with them a little bit and the drink we know as coffee was born.
He shared his findings with the local monastery and before long, everyone was making a drink from the coffee plant.
Coffee quickly spread across the Arabian Peninsula and by the 16th Century was prevalent in all parts of Persia, Turkey and Syria. It eventually traveled to Europe by the 17th Century and to the New World by the end of the 17th Century. For a period in that frame coffee was banned in Paris.
