Topic: A new book, and a focus on ISH (2 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Phil Jordan
For those of you interested in the history and ethics of our shared
obsession, and also in particular those who are also interested in the
fascinating Isle of St. Helena, an new book has just been published in the
UK by Antony Wild, a one time coffee trader and historian.
I have only finished the first few chapters myself (I only received my
copy today). So far I've come away informed but depressed. It reads very
well though, I must say, although he does ramble on a bit about how
mankind came to make beverages out of cherry seeds!
I was told about this book by a fellow coffee afficionado in the UK. I
believe it will be available in the US shortly.
I recommend this book to you if the subject matter is of interest. I hope
to have a review of it up on Too Much Coffee in the next few days - the
guy who recommended the book has promised me a review.
Oh, and I almost forgot - the author uses the history of ISH as an example
of the ravages caused by the coffee industry over the centuries.
