How to make Coconut Water Iced Coffee
There is an interesting story behind the discovery of coffee. It is said that an Ethiopian goat herder in the 1500s once saw his goats feasting on cherries and developing immense energy levels afterward. They were awake all night and had a changed behavior. Puzzled, the herder shared his observations with the monks who then made a drink using the beans. Thus was born coffee! The monks were delighted and so was the world. Interesting, isn’t it?
