Dave Eggers’ new book “The Monk of Mokha” follows Yemeni-American Mokhtar Alkhanshali in his journey to bring the forgotten flavors of Yemeni coffee to American connoisseurs. Eggers and Alkhanshali join us in studio to talk about Alkhanshali's odyssey, which involved returning to the war-torn country of his family, building a business and restoring Yemeni coffee to prominence.
