Coffee is in My DNA


It seemed natural that my father, an import/export coffee merchant, would share stories about coffee and its background that slow Sunday afternoon. We sat on our sunny balcony in Greece, sipping cups of aromatic Turkish coffee. He told me about the 11th century Ethiopians who called coffee a “magical fruit.” My favorite story was about Kaldi, the goatherder, who noticed how excited his goats became at night after munching on the coffee plant.
