A three-hour documentary series that traces the unique and volatile history of coffee. From its discovery on an ancient Ethiopian hillside to its role as a contemporary elixir, coffee has dominated and moulded the economies, politics and social structures of entire countries.

Part 1: The Irresistible Bean carries us back to coffee’s origins in Ethiopia and it’s triumphant spread over five continents, sparking revolution, controversy, creativity, business and slavery all along the way.

Part 2: Gold In Your Cup uses an elegant contemporary competition to elevate the quality of coffee in Brazil to frame a portrait of 19th century coffee-fuelled oppression in Latin America.

Part 3: The Perfect Cup heralds what some coffee experts have called ‘the romantic age of coffee’. North Americans re-discover what their European counterparts have known all along: coffee is better when it’s quality coffee, and the best place to find it is in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the cafe.
