9/29 is National Coffee Day- Get ready to celebrate! The history of coffee can be traced back to the ancient coffee forests in Ethiopia. It’s said that a goat herder first discovered the potential of these beans after his goats ate berries from a tree and became so energetic they seemed to “dance” and didn’t want to sleep at night.
