The Origin of Coffee: So Baaaaad

November 6, 2012


The daughter was reading her new book about natural herbs and related this little gem to me:

One day, the Arab mullah Schadelih met a goatherd whose flock was jumping around in an excited fashion. When asked to explain their behavior, the goatherd told the mullah that the animals grew agitated every time they grazed on the leaves and fruit of the coffee bush. Schadelih then ate some of the fruit and immediately became more alert! Later, he accidentally burned some beans. Their excellent flavor convinced him to prepare them in this way in the future. — from Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, by Andrew Chevallier

      Coffee actually has the reverse effect on me. I get more tired after having it. Maybe it’s the sugar crash? 😯

    I love pygmy goats!!! They are so stinking cute!! If we ever move to a house with some land, I want goats and chickens!
