Dancing Arabian goats and Venetian merchants begin Claudia Roden’s work, succinctly titled Coffee. The renowned anthropologist and cookbook author writes on the historical pathways of, and her personal connection to, coffee. Roden begins at the root, literally, taking the reader from the coffee berry to its many preparations, instant to gourmet, and how everything in between was developed. The reader learns to brew their perfect cup and several recipes using coffee outside the moka pot.
