Michaele Weissman journeyed inside the world of specialty coffee in search of the perfect cup. She traveled to coffee-growing regions in Nicaragua, Panama and Ethiopia with Peter Giuliano of Counter Culture, Geoff Watts of Intelligentsia and Stumptown's Duane Sorenson. Michaele explores the relationships between the producers, buyers and consumers in her book God in a Cup. One of the best coffee varieties she found is Hacienda La Esmeralda's Geisha coffee from Panama, which costs $130 per pound.
