Hello teachers,

Should we put a comma after Kaldi to make the sentence like this: "According to coffee historians, its origin can be traced to an Arabian shepherd, Kaldi, who found his goats jumping enthusiastically around a dark green shrub covered with red cherries."

Is the bold an appositive?

Thank you.
Hoa

It's like to be 'excited' or 'keen'.

But I really wonder .. how come 'goats' to be enthused to jump? !! I'm trying to go figure.

They liked the taste of the coffee and the 'buzz' they got from eating the beans, Puppet.

Yes, that's sensible. The jumping happily was coming from the sense of Buzz.

Cleared! .. Thank you, Beee.
