| Book Description: |
The global coffee chain is currently characterized by a paradoxical coexistence of a 'coffee boom' in consuming countries and a 'coffee crisis' in producing countries. This book shows that the 'coffee paradox' exists because the coffee farmers sell and the coffee consumers buy embed increasingly different 'attributes'.
