I enjoyed this, most memorable part was when the author makes a case for the coffee bean as an evolutionary catalyst. This is sort of how Terrence McKenna made the argument that the ancestors of Homo Erectus benefited psychologically and socially from ingesting psychedelic mushrooms, except its caffeine and not Psilocybin that initiates the great leap. It is an intriguing hypothesis backed up by the fact that fossils of some of mankind's oldest ancestors have been found in the same Ethiopian highlands where wild coffee trees first originated as well the proven heightening of the powers of cognition and expression that caffeine has on the human brain. So coffee, the drug that made us human? no wonder i barely feel human before my first cup of the day
