DAVE EGGERS and MOKHTAR ALKHANSHALI

Can there really be a link between the specialty and varietal coffee that seduces us in our local roastery and fair pay for the farmer who cultivates the beans? Dave Eggers talks to Mokhtar Alkhanshali, who had a dream to revive and reimagine the coffee industry in his family’s native country, Yemen. Coffee drinking began there 500 years ago, but it was no longer producing a quality cup. Mokhtar’s seat-of-the-pants escape from that country, engulfed by civil war, is only the beginning of the story he tells Dave Eggers in this conversation about immigration, human rights, and the power of persistence.
