really liked it
bookshelves: food-cooking-household, sociology

I found this to be a very balanced accounting of the coffeehouse explosion (which I remember happening just a year shy of my graduating college) and of the rise of Starbucks in particular. I had already read UNCOMMON GROUNDS, which I recommend as a great yet tough read about the history of coffee, and this was a great follow-up to that. Really quite fascinating and I very much appreciated his objectivity.
