With the global popularity of coffee growing apace, Elisabetta Illy--whose family produces the esteemed Illy-brand espresso--pays tribute to this delicious drink. "Aroma of the World" combines a travel journal--with visits to coffee-cultivating countries like Brazil, Ethiopia, and India--with background on coffee origins, preparation, and tasting techniques, as well as its social impact and effect on our health. In addition, leading international chef Gianfranco Vissani offers a selection of exclusive coffee-based recipes, both sweet and savory.

She has been a journalist since 1999 and writes regularly for "BMM" (a quarterly magazine on culture and lifestyle), "Monsieur," "Spirito diVino," and "I Viaggi del Sole" (a monthly supplement of "Il Sole 24 Ore").
