Jammed full of facts, figures,
cartoons, and commentary, this book covers coffee from its first use in
Ethiopia in the six century A.D. to the dramatic rise of Starbucks and
other specialty retailers in the 1990s.
Espresso is coffee at its
purest and most intense, and has grown in popularity in the last decade.
A revised edition of this guide provides a history of espresso, with information
and anecdotes about its culture, lore, and brewing.
