Watching World War Z took me back to the first thriller I saw on the big screen as a kid: Jurassic Park. Most of us will never forget the scene when the T-Rex breaks through its electric fence and begins hunting the giddy scientists-cum-tourists in the pitch black of the rain forest. Or there was the scene in the kitchen with the Velociraptors systematically stalking Dr. Grant’s every move in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. World War Z approximates this surge of heart-pounding suspense, combining massive chase scenes with claustrophobic face-offs in which every inch is fraught.

Ethiopia is a country where coffee is known to have originated, one of the rare places in the world where you can find a wide variety of coffee plants in a wild natural state. For thousands of years each family has roasted its berries, ground them in a mortar and offered coffee to guests following a calm ritual involving symbolic displays of hospitality, friendship and respect.
