The Biography of Coffee

"This is a fascinating book about the origins, planting harvesting, processing, and uses of coffee. This book is not only well written, but has very poignant, vivid photos and pictures. I can see how the reader would have a hard time putting it down and not continue to read about the many interesting facts about coffee. This is another outstanding book from the series "How did that Get Here?" —Rosana Galdos-Bridgewater, librarian, Arington Independent School District, 06/08
