When did coffee leave Ethiopia, its native land? Since 1550, coffee has spread from the mountains of Abyssinia, firstly to Yemen, and within a few centuries throughout the world. This book retraces the story of coffee and of "coffee houses", which have given rise to a new type of social life. It also describes the daily lives of today's growers, who are now having to cope with the harsh demands of global trade, and takes us from Yemento Braziland from Côte d'Ivoireto Laosand Bali, through most of the world's coffee growing countries. It is lavishly illustrated and suitable for any reader.
