History of coffee and tea

I have been a tea-favorer for many years. I have recently discovered that coffee is pretty good. I'm interested in reading some good histories on both plants/beverages. I am not averse to dry texts, so don't feel restricted to pop-ish books! Who has written the best history/histories on coffee and tea?

Did anyone survive in the trenches of World War I from beginning to end?

How many soldiers (if any?) survived the entirety of the fighting of either the western or eastern front of World War I? [more inside]

Signs of many places.

Where can I learn about the history of US national forest signs? I've seen this style all over the country, so I'm wondering when and where the decision was made.
