    As a self-proclaimed coffee achiever, I really enjoyed this book. I loved reading the history and culture of coffee. I found the book to be a little slow moving at times but, still, very interesting and worth the read. An ode to my favorite beverage. Well done! ...

    As Colombian-American, coffee is quite literally my lifeblood. I felt like I owed it to my multi-cup-a-day habit to learn a bit more about this precious beverage, and I found the history of mankind's relationship with this bean to be fascinating. The first few chapters were a bit long-...

    Very informative. Slight hiccups in the proofread and some seemingly unrelated tangents, yet it all circles back to the core idea: coffee cultivation is impressive, but coffee cultivation is in trouble and has been for longer than you might think. ...

    Those of us who rely on coffee for our caffeine boosts probably take the plant for granted, especially in the coffee-driven culture of the US. It's easy to pop into the corner coffee store for a refill or pick up any variety of bagged coffee at the grocery store. And while many of us p...

    This book was an offbeat choice for me, but I was curious about the beginnings of the coffee story. However, I wasn't curious to read the entire book, so I stopped after the chapters covering my area of interest & I had skimmed some of the preceding chapters. I base my rating on th...

    This is an excellent book about the Kafa region of Ethiopia and the original coffee that grows there. I have seen coffee cultivations in Jamaica and was interested to learn that the arabica monoculture is in danger from rust fungus infestation. The wild coffee trees of Kafa offer biodi...

    Very interesting examination of coffee's origins in the wilds of Ethiopia, its spread around the globe, and its future. A must for people deeply interested in coffee. The most engaging parts, for me, are those where the author is writing from first-hand experience, on location in the c...
