Coffee Covered: A Photographic Journey of Coffee From Farm to Cup
is a book about coffee, from its humble origins as a bean to the time it ends up brewed in your cup—a long journey. From the time it has been harvested to the time it is consumed it will have been picked, dried, transported thousands of miles, roasted, packaged and bought with care by dozens of people of varying cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and socio-economic status. This book is a tribute to the world’s most popular drink and the process and people that make it possible.
