Uncommon grounds : the history of coffee and how it transformed our world by Mark Pendergrast ( Book )
21 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 2,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Coffee has been banned as a creator of revolutionary sedition, vilified as the worst health-destroyer on earth and praised as the boon of mankind. Its history provides a window through which to view broader themes of colonialism and culture clash, the rise of mass production, modern-day media and marketing, women's issues and international commodity schemes. It also illustrates how an entire industry can lose focus, allowing upstart micro-roasters to reclaim quality and profits." "Mark Pendergrast enlivens his scrupulously researched history with anecdotes, eccentric characters and period commentary that will give readers stories to share - over good cups of coffee - for years to come."--BOOK JACKET

Kaffee : wie eine Bohne die Welt veränderte by Mark Pendergrast ( Book )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kaffee ist heute neben Tabak und Alkohol das wichtigste Genussmittel unseres Kulturkreises. Doch Kaffee war immer auch mehr als das. Seit seiner Entdeckung durch einen äthiopischen Ziegenhirten hat Kaffee die wirtschaftlichen, politischen und sozialen Strukturen ganzer Länder entscheidend beeinflusst. Die weltweite Kaffeekultur ist mehr als eine Kultur - sie ist ein Kult. Gut drei Jahre lang hat der amerikanische Autor Mark Pendergrast für dieses Buch recherchiert - unter anderem als Kaffeepflücker in Guatemala. Auf der Grundlage einer Vielzahl von Bildquellen, Interviews und Firmenporträts liefert er nun eine Kaffee-Saga, die dem Leser erstmalig einen umfassenden Überblick über die Erfolgsgeschichte der braunen Bohne entfaltet. Er verfolgt ihren alles andere als geradlinigen Weg von den Anfängen in der islamischen Kulturwelt über die Kaffeehäuser Europas, die Kaffeeplantagen Lateinamerikas bis zur trendigen Kaffeebar-Kette Starbucks, die im Verlauf der letzten Jahre zu einem festen Bestandteil der amerikanischen Alltagskultur geworden ist. Als Wirtschaftsjournalist fokussiert Pendergrast vor allem die politischen und ökonomischen Entwicklungen, die dazu geführt haben, dass heute weltweit etwa 25 Millionen Menschen in über 70 Ländern mit der Produktion, Verarbeitung und dem Vertrieb von Kaffee beschäftigt sind. Dabei spart er nicht an Anekdoten, bleibt aber immer an der Sache - mit manchmal liebevollem, aber immer kritischem Blick. Entstanden ist eine ebenso informative wie unterhaltsame Kulturgeschichte der Kaffeebohne, nicht nur für Insider des Kaffeegeschäfts. (Quelle: www.books.ch)
