Liss, David. The Coffee Trader: A Novel. New York, Ballantine Books, 2005. Pendergrast, Mark. Uncommon Grounds. New York: Basic Books, 1999.
Cycon, Dean. Javatrekker: Dispatches from the World of Fair Trade Coffee. New York: Chelsea Green Publishing, 2007.
Gresser, Charis. Mugged: Poverty in Your Cup. London: Oxfam Publishing, 2004. Moodle Readings [M]
