Item description for The History of Coffee in Guatemala by Regina Wagner & Cristobal von Rothkirch...
After it emerged as a market commodity in the 18th century, coffee was easily adapted to cultivation in the highlands of Central America. Guatemala in particular has relied on coffee cultivation as a part of its economic identity: it has been a premier export crop for over 300 years.
The importance of coffee to the country lies in the large labor investment in each stage of production. This large-format illustrated book covers agricultural, social, and cultural aspects of coffee culture in Guatemala in old photographs, charts, tables and maps. Wagner's work shows how Guatemala has met the economic complexity to which this product is subject, and why coffee remains the solid foundation crop of the country today.

We first saw this book in Antigua, Guatemala and were so impressed with the book (even though it had Spanish text) that we bought it. We were delighted to find the English version on this site. This book is a superb presentation of the history of coffee in that country. The excellent selection of historical photographs compliments and the the very informative narrative. If you have any interest in where some of the best coffee in the world comes from this book is for you.
