5.0 out of 5 stars I never knew coffee was so fascinating., 15 Sept. 2005
This review is from: The Coffee-House: A Cultural History (Hardcover)
The title of this book does not do it justice - there is hardly an aspect of the history of coffee, let alone where it is drunk, that is not covered in this fascinating book. What's more, the author's lively style carries the reader along through all the twists and turns of the story. Who would have thought that the apparently harmless coffee-house would come to be viewed with such deep suspicion by the authorities? And the story goes right up to the present day,with the rise of the coffee-house chain. Watch out for the wicked picture of Starbuck's. Settle down with a good cup of coffee and enjoy a good read.
