Other accounts attribute the discovery of coffee to Sheik Omar. According to the ancient chronicle (preserved in the Abd-Al-Kadir manuscript), Omar, who was known for his ability to cure the sick through prayer, was once exiled from Mocha to a desert cave near Ousab. Starving, Omar chewed berries from nearby shrubbery, but found them to be bitter. He tried roasting the seeds to improve the flavor, but they became hard. He then tried boiling them to soften the seed, which resulted in a fragrant brown liquid. Upon drinking the liquid Omar was revitalized and sustained for days. As stories of this "miracle drug" reached Mocha, Omar was asked to return and was made a saint.[14] From Ethiopia, the beverage was introduced into the Arab world through Egypt and Yemen

It is believed that coffee was first discovered in Abyssinia (present day Ethiopia) in the seventh century. As the legend goes, a young goatherd named Kaldi blew his horn to call back his grazing goats, but they were nowhere to be seen. He began to search for his herd and eventually found them amid the vast forest of Ethiopias highlands. To his surprise, the goats were frolicking about on their hind legs, dancing, and bucking each other.
