entertaining reading for those who love reading any thing related to coffee
Negative Product Points
not much substance
cost about 16 dollars.
what i got most out of this book is a coffee maker recommended by the author as one of the few that brew at 195+ degrees and meet the general standards of the specialty coffee association.
there is a chapter on the beans from the different regions but the author does not specify the characteristic tastes of the beans from the various regions. not of much help if you want to find a bean that you might like to try.
another chapter is on coffee antiques which was the story of one of the author‘s outings at a coffee auction.
there is no chapter on home roasting.
there is a question and answer chapter which was kind of interesting. and also an espresso chapter that did not go into the methodology of making espresso.
all in all this is a book for light reading.
