"What a treat! The Doctor and Leela"
Leading experts from business and academia consider coffee's history, global spread, cultivation, preparation, marketing, and the environmental and social issues surrounding it today. They discuss, for example, the impact of globalization; the many definitions of organic, direct trade, and fair trade; the health of female farmers; the relationships among shade, birds, and coffee; roasting as an art and a science; and where profits are made in the commodity chain.

As he began to share this prayer with others, he saw that living these simple lines became a source of profound peace and happiness.

A figure from their past is back, and this time he means to destroy them....
