"The aim of this book is to explore some of the critical issues facing the international coffee industry at the start of the twenty-first century" says Dr Peter Baker, CABI Commodities' Coffee Projects Co-ordinator. "Never before have there been so many challenges and changes to deal with. With contributions from leading authorities, each chapter outlines the latest thinking on a range of topics. From coffee and health, to the problems faced by smallholder producers, this volume represents a starting point for thinking about the challenges ahead, and the opportunities they represent."
