From Bean to Brew—A History of Coffee and Coffeehouses

The research in this book spans a decade and explores the growth and popularity of coffee from 800 A.D. to the present, from Yemen to the United States. Historic coffee-making practices and equipment are examined, as is the evolution of coffeehouses from 17th century Oxford, England to contemporary New Orleans, USA. From Bean to Brew investigates the creation and expansion of New Orleans as a major shipping port for coffee imports as well as the city’s progression to the status of the world’s largest bulk coffee handler. Also included are 16 illustrations by four artists as well as information on numerous professional associations and trade publications.
