1. Who discovered Coffee ? Dancing Goats 

Has the thought ever crossed your mind while having your morning cuppa ,”Who was the amazing person who first discovered  coffee ?”. Well the answer might surprise you : Goats.

Legend has it that Ethiopian shepherds first noticed the effects of caffeine when they noticed  their goats  appearing to get frisky and “dance” after eating coffee berries. Apparently they became so spirited that they did not want to sleep at night.

2.The smell of coffee can reduce stress

The best thing about mornings : The aroma of coffee brewing.

That delicious smell is the best thing that coffee fanatics can wake up to . Now there’s a reason for everyone else to do so too. Researchers at the Seoul National University examined the brains of rats who were stressed with sleep deprivation and discovered that those who were exposed to coffee aromas experienced changes in brain proteins tied to that stress. Although this aroma study doesn’t relate to stress by itself, only to the stress felt as a result of sleep deprivation. But it is perfectly legit.
