National Coffee Day: Just Might be My Favorite Holiday EVER!!!

According to legend; Kaldi, a sixth-century Ethiopian, discovered his livestock frolicking from coffee shrub to coffee shrub. He soon realized that coffee berries had a stimulating effect. Eventually, brewed coffee emerged in Arabia. The popularity of coffee continues to rise today!
