Reminiscent of God in a Cup and The Devil's Cup, this is an inside look into the modern business of making coffee. But rather than a general history, Coffee for One focuses on the revolution that made single serve the most popular way to consume coffee worldwide, and the competition and conflict that got us here.

So if you want a history lesson about coffee and some entertaining facts, This is the book for you. I myself am a coffee drinker and have gone on a tour of the Canterbury coffee facilities in Vancouver. The plant was impressive and after the tour I enjoyed an “cupping” (taste testing) which only increased my interest in the coffee business. This book does focus on the single serve coffee users of today but provides an excellent recap of the history of coffee its sourcing and production to the end consumer.

In Atlanta, Dr. Peyton Shaw is awakened by the phone call she has dreaded for years. As the CDC's leading epidemiologist, she's among the first responders to outbreaks around the world. It's a lonely and dangerous job, but it's her life - and she's good at it. This time she may have met her match. In Kenya, an Ebola-like pathogen has infected two Americans. One lies at death's door. With the clock ticking, Peyton assembles her team and joins personnel from the Kenyan Ministry of Health and the WHO.

Pandemic was on an audible promo for 7.50$ and I had just finished the last book in the undying mercenaries series so decided to give it a shot. The story does start off a little slow but picks up the pace quickly. My favourite part of the book is how unsure you are of each character but once you learn their back story you develop an emotional attachment and as the narrative progresses it only gets stronger. I would highly recommend if your into science, tech, politics and secret society’s. #Audible1

A dirty deal was struck. Humanity was allowed to keep 300 rebellious worlds. In return, we declared war on a powerful enemy from beyond the frontier. A frantic build-up of forces has begun, but the task is hopeless. Seeking allies, Earth's legions are sent to Blood World. A planet on the fringe of known space, where the people only respect masters of combat. Earth's Legions must impress them, but other alien powers have been invited to join the contest. The prize consists of billions of loyal troops - Earth must win.
