Script Details

The subject is about the origins of coffee, and I am looking for a clear, logical-sounding and preferably deeper voice. 
"According to legend, during the 9th century in the Ethiopian Highlands lived a goatherd named Kaldi. One day, his goats ate berries from a certain tree. That night, Kaldi’s goats were so spirited that they did not want to sleep. Kaldi reported his findings to a monk in a local monastery, but the monk disapproved of the berries and threw them into a fire. An enticing aroma soon billowed out and other monks came to investigate. The roasted beans were raked from the embers, ground up and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world’s first cup of coffee. Knowledge of the energizing effects of the berries began to spread: first to the Arabian Peninsula, and then across the globe. The Arabians named the drink ‘qahhwat-al-bun’, which means “wine of the bean”. It was then shortened to ‘qahwah’. The Turkish borrowed the name and called it ‘kahveh’, which in turn was borrowed by the Dutch, who named the drink ‘Koffee’. The English then gave it the name we know it by today: Coffee."
