I have received this book just a few days ago. The book itself looks nice, illustrations are reasonably good, and plenty.It has multiple chapters on just about everything you need to know about coffee, from selecting, to roasting, to brewing in a variety of ways.It could be a great book, but there are many mistakes and inaccuracies hereI will not list everything I disagree, or everything most authors disagree. Such differences are always open to interpretation and each own's opinion. So those really do not matter - it is actually good to hear different opinions.However, I can mention certain things that are clearly wrong.The roasting part has two sections that discuss how "done" the coffee is. The first one, a pictorial, describes espresso as number 4, from 1 (lightest) to 6 (darkest). Later on, when discussing how to get there, all of a sudden espresso is the darkest of them all, even more so than vienna or french (which come after espresso as 5 and 6 just a few pages before).Furthermore, when describing how to achieve each level, some of the roast levels have no difference whatsoever, same instructions for two different levels of roasting, suggesting to someone that certain roast levels are achieved the exact same way (it is not, late in the roasting seconds make quite a lot of difference). The author goes as far as state on his roasting section that every single roast, even the lightest, is carried until after second crack. It should be mentioned that is the difference between most light and dark roasts - the former end roasting before second crack, the latter afterwards. Basic roasting knowledge.There is another section in the book that calls the rust (a disease of coffee bushes) as caused by fungus. It is later called a virus.
