The Birth of a Passion

History (from coffee) -- Encyclopædia Britannica: "One of many legends about the discovery of coffee is that of Kaldi, an Arab goatherd, who was puzzled by the queer antics of his flock. About AD 850, Kaldi supposedly sampled the berries of the evergreen bush on which the goats were feeding and, on experiencing a sense of exhilaration, proclaimed his discovery to the world."
Blessed are you Kaldi, for flesh and blood have not revealed this to you, but the Father in heaven.

You know who would want to know about this? Adam! You should forward it to him. I know he'll appreciate it tremendously.
