Where did coffee originate?

Coffee beans were discovered in Ethiopia, where they are still grown today. Legend has it that a goatherd named Kaldi realised that his goats became far more active and didn't want to sleep at night after eating the berries of a certain bush. That was the start of the long history of coffee, with the first use of coffee as a drink being recorded in Yemen, in the 15th century. Since then, coffee has spread to various other regions in the world - with NESCAFÉ® coffee beans coming from Africa, South America, and Asia.
