Also available with the Title in Spanish: History of Guatemalan Coffee
Originally from Ethiopia, coffee became popular as a drink throughout the world "first in Arabia and the Near East, then in Europe, America and the rest of the world", becoming a key element of development for many countries that, with the time, they based their economy on grain production. Today, the volume of coffee traded in the world is only surpassed by oil, which in itself explains its importance. This book tells and illustrates in detail the history of coffee in Guatemala, one of the Central American countries where the product has played a crucial role. It is the first time that the entire context in which this industry operates "agricultural, economic, social, commercial and cultural" is analyzed in depth, from planting and harvesting to benefit and distribution.
Written by Guatemalan historian Regina Wagner, an expert in socioeconomic issues, the book constitutes a serious and entertaining account of an industry that permeates the entire life of the country.
