I can't give 5 stars as I haven't seen the book. I bought it for a relative in the USA and it didn't come to me first. The history of coffee is of course very interesting.

Gave this as a gift to a coffee lover in my life and the good news is he LOVED it! The bad news is it convinced him to seek out some kind of special coffee that is $100 a pound. I think it could become a habit.

Nothing technical, but it's great to read about the people that grow great coffee and about those who work hard to bring it to us, while trying hard to make the life of the growers better.

I just got this book and it's quite an easy read. For a book that is chalked so full of fantastic insights, and wonderful notions about the world of coffee production and enjoyment, the author really makes it simple to enjoy. Quite a perfect book to go with a perfect cup.

Amazing read on the history, entepreneurs, and farmers in the (mostly American) modern specialty coffee movement. Fascinating and long! I think this book is a must-read for those entranced by the specialty coffee-enhanced life and the personalities who are making it happen. The amount of work that goes into producing great coffee is appalling, as is the economic plight of most of its growers.

Intelligentsia? Stumptown? Counter Culture? If these names ring a bell or you happen to already be a loyal consumer of these brands, this book peels back all the layers to tell a story about how the high-end coffees you love are grown, sourced, roasted, and prepared. With personal vignettes, interviews, travel logs, and history, this book really has brought my cups of coffee to life. The taste and aroma of coffee now reminds me of the author's adventures to the corners of the globe sourcing the best beans -- and meeting farmers, hanging out with infamous buyers, attending cuppings, learning from top baristas, etc. This book was an excellent primer into the Third Wave Coffee movement.

Great book. I was looking for a wide view of the coffee industry from start to finish, but what I found was a much more human experience, filled with details about the backstage of the specialty coffee industry.
It's a shame that the book covers until year 2008. I would love to know what happened until now.

Rather than an in-depth journey around the globe with tasting reviews and different types of coffee, it seemed to me more like a book report. I went here and meet so and so. This person looked like a hippy and recently got divorced and is one of the mavericks of the coffee world, blah blah blah. I want to read about God in a Cup. absolutely incredible coffee, how it is made, where it is from. There is some of that in this book, but not enough to hold my interest. I don't care about all the ins-and-outs of the specialty coffee industry and why one economic model is better than another. If you like reading about the business of coffee, especially specialty coffee, you will enjoy this book. If you want to read about coffee itself, how the varieties taste, precisely how "god shots" are made and tips to help you are home, find another read. It was about as exciting as reading The Economist, I cannot recommend this book to anyone.
