With all due respect to alcohol, coffee is undoubtedly the world's favorite stimulant now and for all time. You can live without love, but most people can't live without coffee. Jacob's 1934 volume traces the history of the miraculous bean from olden days to modern times. The text, buttressed with 75 illustrations, includes a new introduction.
