The World Atlas of Coffee 2nd Edition (James Hoffmann)

In Stock

This profound guide was our first foray into the intricate world of coffee at Gems of Alberta, even before the idea of our coffee venture had come to fruition. 

In this enlightening guide, Hoffmann welcomes readers on a global coffee tour:


Global Insight: Hoffmann takes you on a journey across coffee-growing countries, showcasing the process, history, and cultural significance of coffee through beautiful photography and engaging text.


In-depth Exploration: The updated edition includes new coffee-producing countries and updated statistics, making it a comprehensive resource for both coffee novices and aficionados.


Social and Political Context: Hoffmann also explores the socio-political landscape of the coffee world, discussing the role of colonialism, politics, and the fair trade movement.


Visual Delight: The book is enriched with stunning photographs, detailed maps, and informative charts, offering a visually captivating tour of global coffee production.


"The World Atlas of Coffee" was the catalyst that sparked our passion for coffee, inspiring what Gems of Alberta is today. We believe it can do the same for you, offering a deeper understanding and appreciation of the journey from bean to cup. Whether you're new to the world of coffee or a seasoned connoisseur, this book is an invaluable addition to your collection.

Our Mission

We're on a mission to bridge the gap between a better cup of coffee and tea at home and the producers who are passionate about producing it.

We believe that life is like a garden. It can provide so much but it needs to be fed and cultivated. We want to support the community of coffee and tea in a way that feeds and supports everyone involved in the rich and meaningful culture of coffee and tea from producers around the world, to the people who get the products to us here in Edmonton, to the retailers and businesses that sell or serve us the products.

Support Local

What's the difference between buying something on Amazon versus a local craftsperson?

No one will dispute the advantages of big box stores like Walmart and massive online retailers like Amazon. Selection, convenience and price are the three that tend to come to mind for most of us.

While these benefits make a difference in our lives, a question we want to ask is, “what are the invisible costs of buying from these huge multinational companies instead of buying from your local producers and retailers?” They range from jobs lost, to lack of community culture and local innovation and environmental impacts.
