Todd Carmichael travels to Cambodia, a country known more for ancient Buddhist temples than for coffee. There are reports, however, that high-end Japanese and Korean roasters are buying a Cambodian bean. If there's a specialty-grade coffee to buy and sell back home, Todd needs to find it, and so begins the journey to find the truth behind the rumors that Cambodia may be a major player in the exotic coffee market. But the difficult search takes the coffee adventurer on a brutal motorcycle trek through dense jungles ravaged by monsoons.
