Visit the birthplace of coffee, smell the aroma and savor the taste!
Coffee can be traced back to the 10th century and the coffee forests of the Ethiopian plateau. There is a popular legend about an Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi who observed the energetic prancing and dancing of his goats after they had nibbled the red berries of an unfamiliar tree. So Kaldi decided to try the berries himself and then became known ever after as the happiest goatherd of Abyssinia! Passing this knowledge about the energy berries on to a local monk, the monk decided to try drying and then boiling the berries to make a beverage. His fellow monks loved this tasty new drink, which also had the advantage of keeping them very alert. Knowledge of this new berry beverage then quickly spread and the rest is history as the little red bean transformed the drinking habits of the world! From Africa, coffee spread quickly throughout the Middle East then to Europe and throughout the colonial empires of the time including Indonesia and the Americas. Coffee was drunk by individuals and in small groups and Coffee Houses began opening and came to be regarded as centres of exchanges of information, culture and music.
Follow the scent of where coffee originated!
For coffee lovers, this is simply the most perfect tour! You will not only taste fresh coffee but you will explore incredibly beautiful and lush coffee plantation forests. The word Coffee and Cafe actually derives from Kaffa which is the region in southwest Ethiopia known for numerous coffee farms plus unique highland forests where coffee grows wild. It is considered the very location where the first strain of Arabica (known globally as the finest coffee) originated from and where the plant was first cultivated. The Bonga Forest reserve covers 500 square kms of dense forests and 14 cascading waterfalls. This kind of climate and shaded vegetation produces a slow growing coffee bean resulting in a particularly flavorful bean.
