World Atlas of Coffee by James Hoffman

World Champion Barista and coffee roaster, James Hoffmann, examines key factors of coffee like where coffee comes from, how it was harvested, the roasting process and the water used to make the brew. All these factors (and more!) influence the taste of what we drink.

Country by country – from Bolivia to Zambia – he identifies key characteristics and the methods that determine the quality of that country’s output. Along the way, we learn about everything from the development of the espresso machine to why strength guides on supermarket coffee are really not good news. This is the first book to chart the coffee production of over 35 countries, encompassing knowledge never previously published outside the coffee industry.  For everyone who wants to understand more about coffee and its wonderful nuances and possibilities, this book is a must have.
