St. Kaldi, Pray For Us
Ok, Kaldi, the mythical goat farmer who introduced coffee to Sufi monks, is not a saint. However, I hold him in high regard for bringing us further proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy and it is thus I have always had a fondness for the ritual and tradition of Ethiopian coffee.
Ethiopia has a rich tradition of coffee and it is from there that God delivered his bean-sized grace throughout the world. Recently this tradition was celebrated at the Northwest African American Museum with the smells and bells to entice all the sense. Wish I could have been there, but do please read the report from the Seattle Times.
For all other folks in the Pacific Northwest, please do get a pound of Wandering Goat and send it on my way. Thank you kindly!
