I really enjoyed this. It was basic enough to be approachable to beginners but even as an experienced coffee drinker who already owns all these dorky gadgets and a few more, there were still things to learn. I especially liked the recipes and resources at the end.

A coffee table book about coffee. It was given as a gift, and I read it because I simply enjoy reading about the process of harvesting, roasting, and brewing coffee. It is 150+ pages, but half are pictures. So, it's short. But I did enjoy it, and it had some great, clear, concise info, similar to the Time Magazine Coffee book/magazine I read last year.

As a coffee professional I really enjoyed this book. Although I didn’t learn anything new (minus the recipes section) I will recommend this book (if not buy this book) for all of my baristas. It’s a great entry level book for those interested in coffee. I really liked how Jones suggested a scale but still converted grams to table spoons as best as he could. Jones really makes coffee making a realistic thing for anyone who has the time to learn!

This has been fun to read during slow periods at my work in a coffee shop. So while I am maybe not the target audience of this book, I enjoyed it very much! I feel like it also gave me a good update on how to talk to someone who is new to the craft coffee scene and perhaps doesn’t enjoy the nerdiest of conversations.
This book is written really well, and the cocktail recipes in the back seem really tasty and I want to try them!

I learned so much reading this that I have changed the way I drink my daily coffee. I read it in small chunks while waiting in car line to pick up a child, so it took a long time but it was worth it.

Great basic foundational teaching on coffee from origin to roasting to brew methods. Read the whole book in one evening.

Nicely designed book with great pictures and some interesting recipes toward the end. However, I found it lacking details needed to actually make great coffee. I recommend Craft Coffee as a better application guide. This is more of a coffee table designer piece.
