24 of 24 people found the following review helpful By P. Hatchett on February 1, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book for those with a beginning interest in coffee. It is a survey book on the subjects of tasting, roasting,grinding, making, buying, and storing coffee. It is an overview, not an indepth discussion. The book is filled with beautiful pictures. Part two of the book is a global coffee directory that is very informative about world growing regions. It includes a "flavor profile" that tells you what to expect from coffees of each region.
