Schomer writes conversationally, intersperses diagrams, color pictures and fills his book with passion for coffee technique vis avis cafe mechanics. If you want to seek him out for an autograph I'm told he still checks in on all his cafes throughout the morning shift during weekdays. The next road trip to Seattle is this July and I plan too!
In the words of another reviewer: "the barista's Bible". Schomer is one of the giants of specialty coffee in the U.S., leaving a huge mark on everything from how today's espresso machines are made to coffee culture to latte art. This book is a must read for anyone who loves and/or wants to make espresso.
