4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read for fans of good travel literature and coffee, 31 Oct. 2003
This review is from: The Devil's Cup: Coffee, the Driving Force in History (Paperback)
If you love coffee, then you will be interested in reading this funny, informative,entertaining book.
Stewart Lee Allen considers coffee to have played an essential part in human civilisation and progress.He calls it "Driving force" for human history.It may seem exagerated but he doesn`t merely stays by words. He takes a world journey to show how coffee has appeared in various societies and what was its impact on people. He will take you from Ethiopia through India,Turkey,England, France and finally, back to his home in Oklahoma, US.
The book is full with interesting information about coffee, its roasting and making, about rituals for drinking it, and at the same time it will amuse you with a lot of travel stories, misunderstandings and gaffs, unevitable in communication between different cultures.
