The National Coffee Association describes the origin story of the coffee bean as starting in the highlands of Ethiopia. A goat herder noticed that his flock would act particularly spirited after partaking of a berry from a specific tree. After the goat herder relayed his story, the head of the local monastery made a drink with the berries and found that it could keep him awake for long hours. Thus, coffee was born.
Anna and Andy Pollard, owners of Folklore Coffee on Main Street, often used folk legends like this to help teach English to the African people while living on a small island off the eastern coast of Africa. It was the origin story of the coffee bean, and the deep connection they already had with folklore in general, that led them to name their new coffee shop Folklore Coffee.
