First published in 1999, UNCOMMON GROUNDS tells the story of coffee from its discovery on a hill in ancient Abyssinia to the advent of Starbucks and the coffee crisis of the 21st century. Mark Pendergrast uses coffee production, trade, and consumption as a window through which to view broad historical themes: the clash and blending of cultures, slavery, the rise of brand marketing, global inequities, fair trade, revolutions, health scares, environmental issues, and the rediscovery of quality.As the scope of coffee culture continues to expand, UNCOMMON GROUNDS remains more than ever a brilliantly entertaining guide to one of the world’s favorite drinks.
