Goats will eat anything. Just ask Kaldi the legendary Ethiopian (map) goatherd. Kaldi, the story goes, noticed his herd dancing from one coffee shrub to another, grazing on the cherry-red berries containing the beans. He copped a few himself and was soon frolicking with his flock.
Witnessing Kaldi’s goatly gambol, a monk plucked berries for his brothers. That night they were uncannily alert to divine inspiration.
History tells us other Africans of the same era fueled up on protein-rich coffee-and-animal-fat balls—primitive PowerBars—and unwound with wine made from coffee-berry pulp. Coffee later crossed the Red Sea to Arabia, where things really got cooking...

The coffee beans were discovered in Ethiopia, coffee was NOT invented. The beans grow on trees and are then harvested when ripe and dried.

Looking at the history of mankind I'll say The Song! or maybe Drums, as prehistoric men used it to communicate... If we stay strictly within the limits of the last millenia, I'l go for the acoustic guitar, as no instrument has had its influence and it being portable made it possible for one to be able to play great music easily anywhere...
