    You'll Appreciate That Cup of Kona After Reading This Book

    Affairs, pirates, the death of a king and queen¿who knew the history of kona coffee was rooted in such intrigue and heartbreak? After reading about the process involved in getting those beans to market, I have gained a new respect for that cup of coffee in the morning. Photos included add interest to the story. The book inspired me to try kona coffee for the first time, and now I¿m hooked.
