Black Gold. The Dark History of Coffee

Рейтинг: 
Your morning flat-white helped shape the modern world ‘Elegantly written, witty and so wide in scope, so rich in detail and so thought provoking’ Joanna Blythman It may seem like just a drink, but coffee's dark journey from the highlands of Ethiopia to the highstreets of every town in the country links alchemy and anthropology, poetry and politics, science and slavery. Plots have been hatched, blood spilled and governments toppled to keep your mug filled with fresh espresso. In this thought-provoking expose, Antony Wild, coffee trader and historian, explores coffee's dismal colonial past, its perilous corporate present, and the environmental destruction which could limit its future, revealing the shocking exploitation at the heart of the industry.
