Coffee Book Recommendations

I was asked for my recommendation on books about coffee yesterday and today both.  So, I thought I'd write a short blog about 2 of my favorites.  Both of these are available at Harold Washington Library - that's how I read them.  Just fyi, I was not paid by the writers or publishers in any way to recommend them.  :)

Coffee: A Dark History by Antony Wild - Antony is a Frenchman so it's fun to read from his perspective.  There's a nice chapter about Napoleon and his love of coffee.  This book also gets into the myth and lore of coffee's history and takes old wives' tales seriously.  I love some of the theories he comes up with - especially those about the croissant and the Enlightenment.

God in a Cup: The Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Coffee by Michaele Weissman.  Michaele is an American journalist writing about trips to origin (a fancy way of saying "going to where coffee is grown") with some of third-wave coffee's biggest players.  This is a great book to learn about the coffee industry today.

If you have another that's your favorite, post a comment and share.  There are so many good books out there.
