Uncommon Grounds tells the story of coffee from its discovery on a hill in ancient Abyssinia to the advent of Starbucks. In this updated edition of the classic work, Mark Pendergrast reviews the dramatic changes in coffee culture over the past decade, from the disastrous "Coffee Crisis" that caused global prices to plummet to the rise of the Fair Trade movement and the "third-wave" of quality-obsessed coffee connoisseurs. As the scope of coffee culture continues to expand, Uncommon Grounds remains more than ever a brilliantly entertaining guide to the currents of one of the world's favorite beverages.

Mark Pendergrast is an independent scholar who brews a fantastic cup of coffee. He is the author of many books, including For God, Country and Coca-Cola, Mirror Mirror, and Inside the Outbreaks. He lives in Vermont.

New York-based actor Matthew Boston has over thirty years of professional experience working in theater, film, television, and voice-over. His extensive experience in both classical and contemporary works has found him in theaters not only in New York but all across the country. He received his training from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Shakespeare & Company, and the Lee Strasberg Institute. When not acting, Matthew's other passion is scuba diving in the beautiful oceans of the Caribbean. He's also perfectly content hiking and/or playing Frisbee with his golden retriever, Emma.
