It's the 21st century, and Ethiopia is fighting to shed its history of drought, famine, and war in the global consciousness by embracing the heritage and potential of its defining crop: coffee, one of the world's 10 most–valued commodities. Majka Burhardt, author of "Coffee Story: Ethiopia," recounts that process in a tale of opportunity, resources, education, and tradition, transcending the bean itself to explore food anthropology, development, adventure, Ethiopia's landscape and peoples, and the impact of coffee on world politics and global understanding.
