Tonight @ 9|8c, Todd ventures to the birthplace of coffee: Ethiopia. Finding a great coffee bean in the motherland should be easy, right? Well, not exactly.
Since great coffee is available for purchase in markets throughout the country, Todd has to go above and beyond to find a bean that is not only better than great, but different from anything he’s already found. Not to mention, the government tightly guards the country’s coffee industry. Not only does the government control the coffee trade with a Wall Street-like market system, but they also blend every kind of bean together, stripping it of any discernable identity.
Can Todd navigate Ethiopia’s chaotic roads and overpowering government to find a new and exotic coffee bean? Tune in to find out!
