Coffee is the world's most popular beverage, but many who drink it fail to realize just what goes into making a decent cup of java, or the just what it takes to get those delicious little beans into our cups so we can start the day off right. In this documentary the filmmakers at Modern Marvels look back 1000 years to Ethiopia to explore the origin of coffee, and reveal how companies like Maxwell House and Hills Brothers helped turn the caffeinated pick-me-up into a thriving American industry. Along the way, viewers discover the secret to brewing up the perfect cup.
