So here are my take on this good book: Get it even if you are only interested in Espresso!
THIS BOOK IS NOT...
* a recipe book
* about coffee roasting
* about coffee beans
* about advocating which method makes better coffee
* about tea, despite Scott (the author) liking it more than coffee :)
THE FIRST IMPRESSION
Scott's "Everything But Espresso: Professional Coffee Brewing Techniques" is about 70 pages of clear and concise information. Good strong hardcover and high quality binding give this book wonderful handling and tossing around. It is as good as the 100-page The Professional Barista's Handbook: An Expert Guide to Preparing Espresso, Coffee, and Tea. Reader don't have to worry about pages flying off the bind. When compared to the previous book, this one uses the same paper except thinner by about 0.04mm (measured with Mitutoyo digital Micrometer. I was curious), with slightly larger fonts, more spacing and good readability.
Despite styled (and smelled) like a textbook, the author kept things straight to the point and away from long theoretical analysis. This very focused book is full of charts, references, diagrams and photos; making quick browsing a joy with nuggets of good information every few pages. A handy glossary can be found at the end of the book.
The book quality is superb.Read more ›
Espresso and espresso drinks are wonderful, but my preference is to enjoy these at a great cafe. Brewed coffee--whether drip, French press, pour over, siphon, or Aeropress--is my preference at home. Brewing consistently great coffee is more difficult than you might think, but Scott Rao does a fantastic job of explaining how to do it. There is also a great deal of information that clarifies the why's behind the how's, which I think sets this book apart from others.
This is an absolute must for anyone who is serious about preparing and serving great coffee.

Quite a bit of the book is devoted to using the VST digital coffee refractometer to dial in your brewing so if you're not willing to spend the $400-500 to get one of those and the accompanying software this book will be less useful to you.

Really good book, but i think there should be more practical information - times for different doses, photos of suggested grind setting etc.Published on May 7, 2013 by Mateusz
