Kona Coffee Beans History
According to the coffee history of legend, an Arabian shepherd named Kaldi found his goats dancing joyously around a dark green leafed shrub with bright red cherries in the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Kaldi soon determined that it was the bright red cherries on the shrub that were causing the peculiar euphoria and after trying the beans himself, he learned of their powerful effect. The stimulating effect was then exploited and sold to monks at a local monastery to stay awake during extended hours of prayer and sold other monasteries around the world. Coffee Beans were born.
DNA of Kona Coffee Beans
Despite the appeal of such a coffee bean legend, recent DNA botanical evidence suggests a different origin for the Kona coffee bean. This evidence indicates that the history of Kona coffee beans began on the plateaus of central Ethiopia and somehow must have been brought to Yemen where it was cultivated since the 6th century. Upon introduction of the first coffee houses in Cairo and Mecca bought coffee beans which became a passion rather than just a stimulant.
