"The Perfect Cup" heralds what some coffee experts have called the â€œromantic age of coffee.â€ North Americans rediscover what their European counterparts have known all along: that the best cup is quality coffee thatâ€™s good for the farmer and good for the environment, and the best place to find it is in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the cafÃ©. "Black Coffee" is 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 molded the economies, politics, and social structure of entire countries.
