Need that caffeine fix in the morning? Can't function before your morning cup of coffee? Believe it or not, the coffee culture has been carefully manufactured. Learn how coffee spread throughout the world, its decline in popularity in the 70s, and how its revival by an advertising company helped create culture of productivity. Think anthropology is reserved for studies of indigenous people? Come see how anthropology can help explain the everyday things we take for granted.
