The Taste of Many Mountains
Full Product Description
The graduate students arrived in Guatemala energised and ready to take on the world. They planned to follow the path of coffee beans from a peasant coffee-growing community in the western highlands through the chain of buyers, co-ops, exporters and roasters, all the way to a café in San Francisco.
As the students investigate the profit made at every link in the coffee chain, they confront a series of unexpected events that illuminate globalisation in surprising ways. They befriend a coffee-growing peasant family who recounts their family stories of fortune and tragedy wrought by coffee over generations of their Mayan family history. The relationship deepens between the family and the students. Then catastrophe strikes and the students must choose how to respond.
A surprising, beautifully engaging novel that illustrates the many ethical dilemmas of our increasingly globalised economy.
