Black Coffee: a Glimpse into the Dark Side of the Brew --- DVD Coffee is the second most valuable commodity legally traded around the world. Black Coffee tells us about the origins of coffee but, more importantly, how and under what circumstances it came to Arabia, then Turkey, and then to the nations of Europe before finally being brought to the Americas where it became the future Haiti’s most important product.
