Is twenty four and working as a doorman when he discovers the The Monk PDF or astonishing history of coffee and Yemen’s central place in it He leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms h. There is a lesson in this oneor two Don't let anyone tell you can't do something And once you set your mind to something you can do anything Well in this case said person was almost killedmultiple times But he DID IT He did what he set out to do which seemed like an impossibilityOK this tells the story of Mokhtar Alkhanshali A young Yemeni growing up in San Francisco just running around being a punk not caring about much of anything But he begins to see the way after being talked to and tries to better himself He tries to go school but a mistake where he looses a lot of money he was given for school is lost So he goes to work really pushing hard and learning He sells shoes sells cars and then is a door man in a luxury apartment building His girlfriend makes a passing statement to him about a statue and that sets Mokhtar on his next path er uest erobsession er goal He wants to bring Yemeni coffee to America You learn about coffee cultivation roasting and importing and so much about coffee I'm not a coffee drinker at all never had the desire But I found this utterly fascinating You hear of harrowing stories of his time in Yemen and trying to get out Yemen when violence erupts On multiple occasions he thinks he is about to die A great storyand in the end he brings his dream to life Yemeni coffee can be found many places in the US these days And along the way helping the coffee farmers and workers back in YemenFor years I have been wanting to read Eggers works Many rave about them there have been movies which I have not seen of his works I even own a book of his but I just never plucked him from my TBR pile I don't know what it was about this one that when I saw it I had to read it immediately OK cover love drew my attention first I'm so glad I read this one and ignited my desire to read of his books And I found out he is coming along with Mokhtar to a local author speaker series that I attend So I get to hear of this fascinating story by these two men The only downfallit will not turn me into a coffee drinker I just can't So I'll just drink my tea while I read his books and wait for his talk Sounds perfect to me

The Monk of MokhaIgh in the country’s rugged mountains and meet beleagured but determined farmers But when war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down Mokhtar has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his peopl. Eggers was the reason why I picked up this book—someone at work handed me an ARC and I was like sure why not I didn’t even realize it was non fiction until after the first chapterBut holy cow it was spectacular It’s about a Yemeni American who wants to bring high uality Yemen coffee back to the US and the rest of the world I had no idea about the history of coffee and wouldn’t have thought I would find it so interesting but Eggers writes the history portions with his famous storytelling touch Not to mention that Mokha’s story is absolutely crazy My only complaint is a small one—I thought the ending didn’t have enough detail Then again the story is still going on If you have even the slightest interest in coffee or Yemen it’s a good book for you If nothing else it will give you some good tidbits to wow people at the next party you attend
