    DescriptionThe Art and Craft of Coffee is a backstage pass into the world of small-batch coffee roasting, bean selection, grinding, and artisan-quality brewing. Kevin Sinnott, the coffee world's most ardent consumer advocate, educates, inspires, and caffeinates the reader in this comprehensive, full-color instructional guide. Learn how green coffee beans are farmed, harvested, and roasted; how to roast your own coffee; how to choose the best grinder for your beans; and finally how to master brewing styles as diverse as French press and espresso to the Turkish ibrik. Recipes for several coffee and espresso beverages are included. George Howell, founder of Terroir Select Coffee and the Coffee Connection, contributes the Foreword.

    Review quote
    "Web Exclusive"The Art and Craft of Coffee: An Enthusiast's Guide to Selecting, Roasting, and Brewing Exquisite Coffee"Kevin Sinnott"", Quarry (Quayside, dist.), $24.99 (176p) ISBN 9781592535637"Tracing the beverage from its first appearance in the Turkish and Saudi Arabian coffeehouses of the 1500s to the chains and boutique shops of today, Sinnott's guide to primo coffee enables readers to fill their cups to the rim... with greatness. Readers will learn the differing qualities of producing countries (good acidity but light body from Peru; the distinctive Liberica espresso from Laos), the particulars of roasting, and even the best times to buy and brew. Sinnott deftly navigates the thorny issues of production, preferring to focus on the enjoyment of the product. Even readers who don't know their Arabica from their Robusta or a French Press from a percolator will appreciate Sinnott's informative and egalitarian approach; suggestions are the order of the day, not mandates. Whether the barista-to-be prefers to create custom blends to roast at home in the hopes of an ultimate cup, or simply wants to get a better pot from the auto drip she bought for $20, Sinnott's guide will result in a better cup of joe.
