This book explores the various aspects of coffee culture around the globe, relating the rich history of this beverage and the surroundings where it is produced and consumed to coffee destination development and to the visitor experience. Coffee and tourism venues explored range from the cafe districts of Australia, Canada, Germany and New Zealand to the traditional and touristic coffee houses of Malaysia and Cyprus to coffee-producing destinations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific. This is a must-read for those interested in understanding coffee in relation to hospitality and tourism. Readers should gain a new appreciation of the potential for coffee-related tourism to contribute to both destination development and pro-poor tourism objectives.

An intriguing perspective on the social and cultural dimensions of an experience we all take for granted. Through a series of international case studies the authors have illustrated a series of linkages between tourism and the world of coffee - including the relationships of coffee to hospitality, cafe environments as social places, coffee production and tourism destination development and coffee tourism as an agent of cultural change. Alister Matheson, Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, CanadaIn the end, reading the book was generally fascinating and a few Chapters (12 and 13 in particular) would be excellent reading for any jurisdiction or group that wants to establish a tourism venue to complement a coffee-growing operation, comparable to the development of wine tourism...A reader of this book will likely come away with some solid history and sociology lessons and, depending on his/her interests, some useful and potentially thought provoking ideas about coffee consumption, coffee production, fair trade, and the potential for all aspects of coffee to bolster existing tourism products both in developed and developing countries. Those responsible for tourism development should read this book.Iain Murray: School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada in Annals of Tourism Research 38 (2011) 331-346Many useful insights, connections and research ideas percolate through the pages of this frothy concoction. The book is reasonably well balanced, well researched and referenced, quite well illustrated, and clearly excellently edited. While not coffee table size, this volume deserves a place in libraries and places where readers may socialize and reflect while their beverages cool. Cool?Derek Hall, Maidens, Scotland, UK in Tourism Recreation Research Vol. 36, No. 1, 2011The volume offers an eclectic collection of essays, with some fascinating case studies.Marina Novelli, University of Brighton, UK in Tourism Management 32 (2011) 1232-1242
