Baba Budan – this is the legend of an Indian pilgrim who discovered an enthusiasm for coffee when travelling through the Middle East. It was a drink that did not exist in his home country. But at this time, the penalties for exporting coffee were very tough. Baba Budan accepted the risk and smuggled the holy number of seven beans into the country, because he could not manage any more without it.
