The book focuses on El Salvador and how the U.S., in particular through the operations of a coffee investor, superexploited laborers and ravaged the country. But it is a larger history of coffee and its role in world capitalism, both as a source of profit and "bio-economically"--i.e., caffeine energizing workers and the "innovation" and function of the "coffee break." The book was an editor's choice two weeks ago in The New York Times.
