Birth Place of Coffee and Major Types of Ethiopian Coffee That
We are Selling
The term “coffee” is said to derive from Kaffa, the ancient name for the present-
day Oromia region in Ethiopia in which Bonga lies. The Kaffa Kingdom was
supported by a rich trade in gold, ivory and coffee. More notably, perhaps, legend
has it that sometime around the 10th century in Bonga’s locality, a curious goat
herder named Khaldi spotted his goats eating red berries from a shrub he’d
never seen before, after which they became particularly frisky. So Khalid gave
the berries a try himself, the coffee bean was discovered, and breakfast time
across the world would never be the same again.
