The essential compact compendium for the coffee enthusiast.

This is the ultimate guide to the history, science, and cultural influence of coffee according to coffee aficionado and master storyteller Tristan Stephenson. You'll explore the origins of coffee before discovering the varieties of coffee and the alchemy responsible for transforming a humble bean into the world's most popular drink. You'll learn how to roast coffee at home in the Roasting section before delving into the Science and Flavor of Coffee and finding out how sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and aroma all come together. Discover how espresso and milk are a match made in heaven, yielding such treasures as the Flat white, Latte, Cappuccino, and Macchiato. Other Brewing Methods features step-by-step guides to classic brewing techniques, from a Moka pot and a French press to Aeropress and Siphon brewing. Finally, why not treat yourself to one of Tristan's expertly concocted recipes. From an Espresso Martini to a Pumpkin Spice Latte and Coffee Liqueur to Butter Coffee, this is the definitive guide to the extraordinary world of coffee.
