From beverage to perfume ingredient

There are many stories about the origin of coffee; legend has it that goat herder Kaldi first discovered the power of coffee beans after he noticed that his goats were so energetic that they did not want to sleep at night after eating the berries from the coffee tree. As word moved, coffee reached the Arabian peninsula. It began a journey which would bring coffee across the globe. And not only for the pleasure of drinking! Today perfumers and chemists have found moderns ways to obtain the raw material thorugh extracting volatile solvents of the roasted coffee seeds.
