This review is from: Coffee - Philosophy for Everyone: Grounds for Debate (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As someone else pointed out this has a heavy American slant, but to be fair, so does the majority of high streets in the UK! I like my Starbucks, my Costas and (occasionally) my Neros, so this book held a lot of interest for me. Do you remember before the Coffee Culture hit us in the late 90s? A coffee was something you did while you were shopping. You popped into the Light Bite or the nearest greasy spoon for a quick instant before heading back out to hit the stores again. Life is different now, sometimes we go out especially for a Starbucks or a Costas!
It's not just a coffee now; there's Cappucinos, Lattes, Flat Whites, Moccas....and this book will help you understand how the coffee gets from the (poor) farmers into your white cup with a green logo on the side.
