The Barista's Professional Handbook

FROM THE AUTHOR: When I began in the coffee business fourteen years ago, I
read every book I could find about coffee. After reading all of those
books, however, I felt as if I hadn't learned much about how to make great
coffee. My coffee library was chock-full of colorful descriptions of
brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable
scientific books mixed in. I would have traded in all of those books for
one serious, practical book with relevant information about making great
coffee in a café. Fourteen years later, I still haven't found that book. I
know many other professionals as well as some obsessive nonprofessionals
would like to find that same book I've been looking for. This book is my
attempt to give it to them.
