History of Coffee Chart

    Newer Older

    I had to seam this image together, so I am not sure how legible it
    is. David Roche had it at the Roaster's Guild Retreat, and it's from
    a book but I am not sure which. Ukers? Interesting history of how
    coffee was disseminated through the world.

      I am positive I have whatever book this came from. If I can find it do you want a high res scan?

      yes. a rescan would be great! The name of the book would be great also. thanks

      It's in 'Coffee' by Frederick L. Wellman, part of the World Crop Series. It's upstairs on the sofa, James.

      Well, I'll just go upstairs to the sofa and scan it. Don't you keep your coffee library on the sofa too?

      By the way, someday (in that perfect world, where we all have ample time to do everything we aspire to) we should all scan our coffee literature and share the good stuff. The World Crop book is something I definitely have been looking for. I have the full RJ Clarke 6 book series and a bunch more. There's a book from the '50s that I am dying to find which I can't remember at this moment (after 2 pints of IPA). let's do it, uh, sometime.

      I will do this tomorrow. Of the 50s books - I have a few now, they are pretty cool. I just love reading about old production methods, though i have no idea what has changed in the last 50 years. (Perhaps not much in some places?)

      As far as I understand the book is no longer under copyright. It was published in 1961 and the copyright doesn't seem to have been renewed. Correct me if this is wrong.

      Used Book Search has been very good to me in the past. I got the Clarke set ludicrously cheap too! Yay for the internet!

      Best I could manage - will keep trying - it is too damn big/awkward for our rubbish scanner!
