A stunning planet guide to the brown bean. Taking the reader on a worldwide tour of coffee-growing countries, The Globe Atlas of Coffee presents the bean in full-color photographs and concise, informative text. It shows the origins of coffee -- where it is grown, the individuals who develop it and the cultures in which coffee is a way of daily life -- and the planet of consumption -- processing, grades, the consumer and the contemporary culture of coffee. Plants of the genus Coffea are cultivated in much more than 70 nations but mostly in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa. For some nations, which includes Central African Republic, Colombia, Ethiopia, and Honduras, coffee is the number a single export and crucial to the economic system. Organized by continent and then additional by nation or region, The Planet Atlas of Coffee presents the brew in shade spreads packed with data. They incorporate: The background of coffee normally and regionally The position of colonialism (for example, in Burundi below colonial rule of Belgium, coffee manufacturing was very best described as coercive. Every single peasant farmer had to cultivate at least 50 coffee trees near their house.) Map of growing areas and detail maps Charts explaining differences in growing areas within a nation Inset boxes (For instance, what is the Potato Defect? Is Cuban coffee legal in the United States?) The politics of coffee and the fair trade, organic and shade grown phenomena Stunning colour images taken in the discipline. Americans eat 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year, making the United States the major customer of coffee in the globe.
