Sample text

A fundamental conundrum of food consumption is that food is utterly necessary to survival, yet it is taken for granted (Mintz 2002). In the USA, it is easy to be oblivious to the hows and whats of our food. In part, our lives have become so full and complex that we do not feel there is time or need to think of food beyond its packaging and how efficiently we can prepare it. We also have been encouraged to ignore the background and origins of food by business conglomerates that process and distribute our food (Belasco 2002).

But only four major TNCs— Nestlé, Sara Lee, Kraft Foods, and Tchibo—dominate the coffee market and hold major brands. Together, they purchase 60 percent of the world’s green (unroasted) coffee beans (Future Trends 2001) and have the power to constrain prices paid to producers, while maintaining prices of coffee sold to consumers. Theoretical Integration for Examining Coffee Meanings and Values Each of these theoretical approaches helps to interpret the meanings and popularity of coffee in modern society, and how they vary across classes.

Most exported coffee ends up in 60-kg (132-pound) bags for international shipment in large, ocean-­going container ships. Green coffee beans can be easily transported, and store well for extended periods when kept dry and cool. Ease of transportation has contributed to the worldwide adoption of coffee. Arriving in the USA or Europe (the major importers), the coffee beans are transported by truck to roasting facilities. Beans undergo roasting at temperatures up to 470°F for about 13 minutes, depending on the darkness of the roast, the quality of the bean and preferences of the roaster (Sweet Maria’s Coffee 2010).
