Revue de presse

"Overall this book serves as a complete overview not only of espresso coffee but also of coffee in general. With its comprehensive overview of the parameters important to coffee quality and coffee consumption on human health it becomes a good reference book for both food scientists and nutritionists in the field."
- Massimo Marcone, University of Guelph, Canada for FOOD RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL (2005)

"A vital resource for anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of coffee and its production, this book, with its industrial and historical perspectives, manages to combine the delivery of complex scientific data with pure enthusiasm for the product."
- CAFE CULTURE (July 2005)

".the book's precision with the details of coffee science is unparalleled. It balances scientific prowess and readability without overwhelming the reader, whether new to the coffee world or a veteran.”
- FRESH CUP (June 2005)

Première phrase
The term 'quality' has been abused since the later 1980s, when Western industries realized that lack of quality accounted for their diminished competitiveness with respect to those of Japan. Lire la première page

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative, advanced but how relevant ? 27 août 2006
Par P. Tellier - Publié sur
Unlike many coffee related books, this one goes a lot further. This book approaches coffee with a scientific approach, not a descriptive approach, which makes it harsher to read, but which provides info unavailable elsewhere.

By no means should this book be considered as your first coffee related book. Cover coffee basics through other more appropriate books. Once you've read a couple, if you really want to go deeper into the knowledge of coffee, this this book is for you. It requires that you have a scientific background though. You will see some chemistry formulas and it does discuss kinetic energy; it's somewhat technical.

I would give it a perfect 5 star rating, but I feel that some information in this book lacks relevance. In purchasing this book, I wanted to understand the science behind coffee to help me make better coffee. I felt that many passages of this book were irrelevant towards that goal.

Hope this helps !

A complete and total in-depth scientific analysis of coffee. Not light reading, and not for casual coffee drinkers. This is the holy bible of technical manuals regarding coffee. Growing history, chemical breakdown, regional traditions - serious stuff. An awesome book if you want the real deal behind espresso. Very technical. It includes some math and chemistry. It does, however, have enough background and clarification that a non-technical person could leaf through it and still enjoy plenty of what it has to offer. It really shines as a in-depth espresso tech manual though.
Some have reviewed this book as way to technical. That is akin to saying an in depth car repair schematic manual is way to technical. It's not full of complicated writing, it's full of very complicated subject matter. Keep that in mind. Certainly not a 'beach read' unless, like me, your an engineer and enjoy the more refined technical side of the world. And think the beach is just a big sand pit that hands out sunburns.
I requested that this book be made available on the kindle bookstore, and a few months later it was. I bought it on the spot, and love it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice compendium on the topic of espresso. 19 décembre 2013

Best book currently available for the guy that wants to know more but its not for average browsing. Covers espresso coffee from origin to cup. Doesn't give a scientific answer for every question which says to me that there are still aspects that are "art" and not yet fully explained. The book I was looking for hasn't been written yet (to my knowledge). Maybe it never will be.

This is knowledge. Deep, dense truth. Waist deep and amazing. This is as nerdy as you can get topically, and it doesn't stop there. get at it.
This book is a research based affirmation of what I have been telling people for years about coffee. Make it your own.
