Jeff Koehler - Where the Wild Coffee Grows: The Untold Story of Coffee from the Cloud Forests of Ethiopia to Your Cup

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Koehler’s expansive history of Arabica coffee starts in the isolated cloud forests of southwestern Ethiopia, where the berry has been harvested by the Kafa people for generations. Today, however, 85% of Arabica is grown in Latin America, where it is increasingly vulnerable to disease and the effects of climate change. To protect this valuable commodity, breeders are studying its original home, looking for Arabica’s future in its past. Koehler, author of the award-winning Darjeeling and several books on the food and culture of Spain and Morocco, ends this rich history of the world’s second biggest commodity (after oil) on a note of suspense: Arabica’s African habitat is also under pressure and has been steadily shrinking.
