Fascinating for coffee loversI,
This review is from: Coffee - Philosophy for Everyone: Grounds for Debate (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like my coffee, so this was right up my street. It's a set of papers on different aspects of coffee, such as is one type better than another, or is Fairtrade moral. Each paper presents not only its philosophical argument, but also a fair amount of history and the science of coffee. Aspects covered include the transportation of coffee and its effect, how the farmers growing the stuff are struggling while you're sipping your 2.50 Starbucks cappucino...
I found every paper well written, perfectly readable for a non-philosopher and a good book to dip into every now and then. Preferably with a coffee nearby!
