Steward Lee Allen. This book is an entertaining combination of autobiography, travelogue & social history. Stewart Lee Allen claims that when entire populations began drinking coffee, they began building empires. The only thing is, after retracing coffee’s journey to world domination -- by train, rickshaw, cargo freighter & donkey -- he has plenty of evidence to back it up. Allen cuts a caffeine-fueled arc that runs from coffee’s Ethiopian origins, through its Arabian distillation, across its European domestication, before terminating in a cross-country search for the worst cup of America coffee. Famed author-chef Anthony Bourdain praises this book as ‘Absolutely riveting, informative & hilarious’.
