Todd Carmichael seeks a new discovery in the birthplace of coffee: Ethiopia. Coffee was discovered in Ethiopia around 1000 AD, and has grown to be a big business in the country. Todd will need to avoid interference from the government, which controls most of Ethiopia’s coffee. He must brave fatal roads, evade wild predators and avoid confrontations with gun-toting sentries ... all to track down the purest bean in coffee's own Garden of Eden.
