God in Cup

by Michaele Weissman

I couldn't help but be disappointed with this book. It seemed to be just a lot of name dropping of North Americans in the specialist coffee industry. I did learn a bit, how coffee was sourced. The poverty and corruption in the industry especially at the farmers end.
I would have liked to have heard about the coffee industry in Australia or probably more realistically Europe. To read about who won the world Barista championship. Not the American who came second!
Yep I suspect if you are interested in coffee and want to read more and don't live in the US. This book will miss the mark.
