Coffee is the most popular drink worldwide with around two billion cups consumed every day. More and more people are turning to good quality, fair trade coffee (premiumization); evident by the number of independent coffee shops opening up in towns and cities as well as the number of us playing home barista as the choice of specialist beans and professional coffee-making gadgets grows. This book is the ideal companion for those who want to understand more about how to source and brew quality coffee. Good coffee and wine have much in common, not least how the terroir of the crop affects the flavor profile of the finished coffee from different geographical areas, so that you can choose your beans with confidence. Whether you enjoy light and bright, warm and mellow, or dark and aromatic flavors, discover how to roast and grind your own beans and use the brewing guides to refine your coffee-making skills.
