The World Atlas of Coffee presents the bean in full-color photos and brief text. It presents the origins of coffee – where it is grown, the people who grow it and consume.
Plants of the genus Coffea are grown in more than seventy nations but primarily in central Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. For some countries, coffee is the number one export and crucial to the economy.
Arranged by continent and then further by country or area, The World Atlas of Coffee presents the mixture in color spreads stuffed with information. They include:
- The history of coffee generally and regionally
- Detail maps of growing areas
- Diagrams illustrating variations in growing regions within a country
- Inset boxes
- The politics of coffee and the open trade, organic and shade-grown phenomena
- Stunning color photos were taken in the field.
- Americans drink 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year, making the U.S. the leading consumer of coffee in the world. The World Atlas of Coffee is an outstanding choice for these coffee fans.
