Coffee in the Diet, Cuisine and Spiritual Application of Early Humans
It seems early humans at the Source discovered and started using coffee so long ago, that there is no active story as to how, when or who discovered and first used coffee. What we know is that for thousands of years coffee has been known to have special spiritual qualities and powers, as well as medicinal and therapeutic value. Thus, for thousands of years priestsof Afrikan Spirituality in Buganda, Bunyoro and Busoga have used, and to this day still use, coffee in ancient ceremonies and rituals to open channels of communication between humans and the supernatural world; to precipitate the flow of God’s grace among his people on earth; to communicate with and receive the blessings of the ancestors – and thereby restore harmony and harmonious living on Mother Earth; etc., etc. These ceremonies have existed for such a long time that today they are routinely performed by ordinary people in their communities, homes and family.
