It is home to rare endemic wildlife and is the place of origin of the longest river in the world (Blue Nile). Ethiopia is the first country in the world to discover coffee, and even gave coffee its name (derived from the Kaffa region). It is the first country in the world to accept Christianity and is among countries frequently mentioned in the Holy Bible and Holy Quran.
