Finsbury Ark's Coffee
The First Cup of Coffee
Kaldi, an Ethiopian goatherder watched in amazement when his flock nibbled on the bright red berries of a certain bush- they turned into dancing goats! Kaldi chewed on the fruit himself and his exhilaration prompted him to take the berries to a holy man in a nearby monastery. This holy man disapproved of their use and threw the berries into a fire which caused an enticing aroma. The roasted beans were then raked from the embers, ground up and dissolved in hot water to produce history’s first cup of coffee.
Our coffee is unique to Finsbury Ark. This blend combines Arabica beans from the fertile, volcanic soil of Costa Rica with a Vietnamese Robusta nurtured on the banks of the beautiful Mekong River.
Our blend is available for purchase at the Ark. Just ask at the counter.
