An Abyssinian goatherd, who lived around AD 850 in the town of Kaffa. One day he observed his goats behaving in an abnormally exuberant manner; skipping, rearing on their hind legs and bleating loudly. He noticed they were eating the bright red berries that grew on green bushes nearby. Khalid tried a few himself, and soon felt a novel sense of elation. He filled his pockets with berries and ran home to announce his discovery to his wife. "They are heaven sent!" She Declared.
