   - Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World

"Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World" is the definitive history of coffee - from its discovery on an Ethiopian mountainside to the age of Starbucks and the coffee crisis of the twenty-first century. A sweeping epic, "Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World" uses coffee production, trade, and consumption as a window through which to view broad historical themes: the clash and blending of cultures, slavery, the rise of brand marketing, global inequities, fair trade, revolutions, health scares, environmental issues, and the rediscovery of quality.
Replete with a cast of eccentric characters - all of them suffused with a passion for the golden bean - "Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World" is nothing less than a coffee-flavored history of the world, the classic work on coffee culture, fully updated for our times.
