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, Canada
Aspects of global coffee culture are explored as they relate to the settings where the beverage is produced, prepared and consumed as part of coffee related tourism. Of particular note on the one hand is the potential of such tourism for developing tourism destinations, products and experiences; while on the other hand improving the livelihoods of coffee producers.
