A cup of coffee -that symbol of hospitality throughout the Near East and Europe- had its origins in urban Islamic coffeehouses of the 15th and 16th centuries. But coffee did not enter the social scene without first encountering considerable resistance and concern over its legality, salubrity, and virtue. Jurists and doctors argued over its moral and medical effects while rulers and bureaucrats fretted over the nocturnal social gatherings it encouraged.

The early history of coffee, from its use in Sufi rituals to its widespread consumption in medieval Muslim coffeehouses, makes fascinating reading. Drawing on original Arabic sources and the accounts of early European travelers, Hattox describes the colorful history of coffee and the birth of the unique institution of the coffeehouse in urban Muslim society.
