"After oil, coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world. It
was even once baptized by the Pope. And in the U.S., about 60% of the
population drinks it regularly, spending over $20 billion dollars a
year. As the essential morning beverage, itdelivers some of the
greatest doses of the world's most widely taken legal drug. Coffee:
Beans to Buzz traces the epic saga of a potent bean with a
revolutionary impact that has broken down social, political and
economic barriers throughout the ages." from promotional blurb on

This is a condensation of an exceptionally good three hour production
originally shown on Canadian TV in 2006.

Reply to Rick and Darryl: Yes and yes ;)

The documentary is brilliant. I've been in touch with the producer in
the past. I wanted to sell it on DVD thru CG if it ever became
available.

I only hope the Nationalgeographic chopping won't take too much out of
it.

Is this the program based on k Pendergrast's book "Uncommon
Grounds?" When I talked to him a couple years ago, he told me a
Canadian team had such a show in the works.

The original 3 part (1 hour each) documentary, called Black Coffee is
fantastic, and IMO, so much better than Black Gold; it presents some
pretty comprehensive stuff about coffee, from history to social
aspects.

Do you know whether that's the TVO production? I saw a one-hour TVO
production called "Black Coffee" on an Air Canada flight over the
holidays. It was particularly meaningful to me with a moka pot and 1
lb. of home roast in my carry-on. My wife's comment -- "Can't we EVER
get away from coffee-coffee-coffee?" ;-)
