Worldwide, people drink around two billion cups of coffee a day, and it’s only growing in popularity. The SCAA reports that in 1993, there were just 2,850 speciality coffee shops in the whole of the USA – 20 years later, that number was 30,000.
For coffee enthusiasts and travelers alike, Lonely Planet’s Global Coffee Tour (Lonely Planet Food / $19.99 / May 15, 2018) showcases 150 memorable coffee experiences to have in 37 countries around the world – from traditional ceremonies in Ethiopia to the kissatens of Japan.
Researched and compiled by Lonely Planet’s network of coffee-obsessed travel experts, Global Coffee Tour shows readers how to find each recommendation and which coffees to sample as well as suggesting other local highlights – from museums and galleries, to hikes, shops and markets – so you can make a day or weekend of your visit.
For each country in the book, Global Coffee Tour will tell you how to ask for a coffee in the local language, their signature coffee style, what food to order with your coffee and cultural do’s and don’ts when ordering.
