From the Back Cover:

The early history of coffee, from its use in Sufi rituals to its widespread consumption in medieval Muslim coffeehouses, makes fascinating reading. Drawing on original Arabic sources and the accounts of early European travelers, Hattox describes the colorful history of coffee and the birth of the unique institution of the coffeehouse in urban Muslim society.

Review:

"Coffee and its 'house' became a noticeable and long-lasting fixture in Muslim society and arguably a historical force to be reckoned with..How it all began can be learned form this short book, which is written with great care and full, reliable documentation."―American Historical Review
