Ever wonder about the origin of coffee? It all traces back centuries to the highlands of Ethiopia, centering on an observant goat herder and his unusually energetic herd. This tale also has to do with our brand name.
The story starts with a herder named Kaldi. He noticed his goats showing extraordinary energy, bordering on hyperactivity, after eating berries from a certain tree. Intrigued, Kaldi took these berries to a local abbot.
The abbot, with an inventive spirit, turned the berries into a drink and found it helped maintain his alertness during long hours of prayer. As word spread within the monastery, the popularity of these magical beans grew, setting the foundation for what we know today as coffee.
We're inspired by Kaldi's hyperactive goats, the unsung heroes that sparked the coffee revolution. To honor these lively animals and the roots of coffee, we chose the name Hypergoat. It encapsulates our connection to coffee's vibrant history and our goal to bring you an exceptional array of specialty coffee from around the world.
So, when you're sipping your next cup of Hypergoat coffee, give a thought to Kaldi's energetic goats. Like them, let our coffee energize your day and spark a bit of adventure.
