The Home Barista: How to Bring Out the Best in Every Coffee Bean Reviews
Quick, clear and enjoyable read.The authors write things in a simple to understand way without the shrouds of mystery and language that sometimes surrounds coffee, there's no real need to make it so complicated!So a good book if you want to know more about coffee and want to cut out a lot of the jargon.
Nice little book that gives you an insight on the coffee's history, background, roasting, types of machines and coffees. Easy to read, non-judgemental and probably worth to buy if you are a coffee lover.
As a coffee-lover, I loved this book. An easy to read and incredibly exciting guide that will make you love coffee even more. Plus, you'll get to experiment a lot on different types of beans and its roastings, so you get out there and find your perfect cup.
A light and easy to read introduction to coffee, with a nice chatty, non-judgemental, style of writing that describes a lot of the subtleties of coffee production, roasting, grinding and brewing. There is an interesting discussion on the different grower focused initiatives so that they are able to run profitable farms. Lots of interesting details - have you heard of the use of a near infrared abridged spectrophotometer to assign an Agtron number to classify roasts?But I think the design of the book has overtaken the content. With ageing eyes I found some of the text difficult to read as there wasn't sufficient contrast between the font and the background colours. The flavor (sic) wheel was particularly hard to read - I had to go online to find the original. The book uses the same colour font for all captions but the original changed to contrasting fonts - much more readable.A nice "stocking stuffer" for some who enjoys coffee!
This is a fun, fast, and beautiful introduction to the world of coffee. It gives a nice overview of the various aspects of coffee from farming to roasting to grinding to brewing. For what it is I give it 5 stars. If you are expecting something full of details, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a beautiful overview, this is the book.
The Home Barista is a fun, brief overview of coffee. I enjoyed the aesthetics of the book: photos, fonts, layouts, and compact size. I'd say it's a good primer on coffee and can easily be read in a night. It'd be a great gift for your favorite coffee lover.
