This is a good book that explains in simple language about coffee basics. The history, origins and how beans are grown, picked and processed before roasting. Includes the different methods of making coffee and the expected results. It offers comprehensive and excellent information about espresso; an expensive investment. There are no illusions or heavy product endorsing in this book. I paid over $14 for it, and discovered I had many misconceptions about storing and brewing. With less than $100 in equipment, I am now enjoying a fabulous cup of java in the morning.

Book advertised as new, but obviously this book has been used for quite some time. The condition was good at best. The only redeeming value is that it was dirt cheap, but I would have paid another more for one I have better condition.

Good general coffee book, a bit too general in my mind. No enough on history and too quickly goes through terms. It is from 1997, so the post 2000 coffee shop reality is absent. Good book, as it says, its Coffee Basics from 1997.
