Costa lotta?

Inflation and commodity prices may push up the cost of a cup of coffee. But is there a foam ceiling above which it just becomes too much? Simon Brooke reports


Bean counters

Coffee used to be a utilitarian drink. Now, increasingly, it is a connoisseur product, assessed with all the attention to flavour paid to fine wines and whiskies, writes Sarah Jane Evans

Rise of the machines

More people are buying coffee machines for the home, creating a market dividing along lines of style and performance, convenience and connoisseurship, writes Josh Sims


Taking the strain

In the West a cup of coffee is largely taken for granted. But environmental change poses a real threat to the crop and to the farmers who manage it. Simon Brooke looks at scientific and social moves to protect beans and livelihoods alike
