Uncommon Grounds tells the story of coffee from its
discovery on a hill in ancient Abyssinia to the advent of
Starbucks. In this updated edition of the classic work, Mark
Pendergrast reviews the dramatic changes in coffee culture
over the past decade, from the disastrous â€śCoffee Crisisâ€ť
that caused global prices to plummet to the rise of the Fair
Trade movement and the â€śthird-waveâ€ť of quality-obsessed
coffee connoisseurs. As the scope of coffee culture
continues to expand, Uncommon Grounds remains more
than ever a brilliantly entertaining guide to the currents
of one of the worldâ€™s favorite beverages.
