I have read quite a few coffee books over the last decade and it's refreshing to come across a coffee book that represents where the specialty coffee industry is today. The information is very accurate, well organized, progressive, and easy to read. It acts as both a casual read for those interested in coffee and a valuable training resource for professionals within the specialty coffee industry. If your staff needs an enthusiastic boost of coffee geek information, put this book behind the counter for them to read.

I recently got an espresso machine and didn't really know where to start! I stumbled upon this amazing book and it was so helpful!! If you need a book getting you started with an espresso machine this is it! A very nice read with great tips throughout! There are also AMAZING recipes towards the end of the book! Everything you could ever want to try with an espresso machine! I can't wait to get started!!

This is a must have book for every coffee/espresso enthusiast. It is the most comprehensive primer for all things brewed I have every come across as a professional barista. The information is presented in an easily accessible way while remaing thorough. It covered a wide range of information helpful to the professional and interesting to the connoisseur. The regional/country maps are a particular favorite of mine. It even introduced me to unusual methods and materials I had yet to discover in my coffee journey. If all of that wasn't enough, it is one of the go-to books in my shops professional development and resources library. It is well worth it weight in beans...I mean gold.

Really good book. I like the history and techniques shown in the book. Also the vast amount of recipes. I'm sure you could google them all but it's nice to have a physical book to look at. The pictures are great too.

Item is of better quality than I expected. I purchased this for a friend for an early Christmas gift. She is a barista and has been for many years. She was very satisfied with the book and loves it. Great gift at a great price!

I don't buy just any book about coffee but I'm really glad I bought this one. I like a book that not only reads well but reeks of quality. I like books that not only inform me about what I didn't know, but give me good info that I can make use of and enjoy. I highly recommend for any coffee lover's library.

Very thorough and detailed. Love the recipes. Great for the coffee lover who wants to learn about the coffee culture. As a cafe operator, I found it very helpful.

Beautiful book with great information. Laid out very logically, so easy to quickly extract the facts and knowledge you want.
