To sum it up, Brew is a beginner-oriented guide with great photos, and Craft Coffee is both a beginner and intermediate level guide that contains a wealth of information but no photos.
Craft Coffee: A Manual
• Overall a 201 type of book – more detail and coverage of coffee beans, equipment, brewing, flavors, etc.
• Great walkthroughs of different brewing methods; has more brewing methods than Brew, including details on different pour over methods
• More science-oriented information, but still approachable to most people
• Much more detail than Brew on coffee origins and their characteristics, why coffees taste the way they do, and a more detailed breakdown of brewing equipment and how best to operate it
• No photos, no color graphics
Brew: Better Coffee at Home
• Overall a 101 type of book – simple, straightforward information about specialty coffee
• Great photos and useful beginner-oriented graphics; has the feel of a coffee table book
• Things that it has that Craft Coffee doesn’t: flash chill method, beautiful color photos, recipes (including cocktails)
• Lumps the pour over brewing method into basically one category (apart from Chemex) and doesn’t provide detailed information about how to brew using different pour over methods
I read Craft Coffee first, and because of that I breezed through Brew in about 30 minutes because Brew 1) has much less text and 2) Craft Coffee already covered almost everything that Brew contains.
So, if you’re the type of person that just wants the basics to step up your home brewing game, then Brew is probably the better option. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive guide to home brewing and coffee in general, then I recommend Craft Coffee for the reasons detailed above.
I think Craft Coffee has everything you need in a guide to better home brewing, whereas Brew might leave some people wanting for more information and detail in several areas. As such, I give Brew 3.5 stars.
The recipes in the back look interesting, and I might try some someday, but for now, the coffee itself is fine. I may even start drinking it sans milk now.
