If you are serious about your coffee, this book is the perfect companion to your journey from coffee drinker to a being a coffee know-it-all.
About the Author
Shawn Steiman is Hawaii’s own “Doctor Coffee,” with a PhD from the University of Hawai‘i-Manoa specializing in coffee studies. Steiman frequently lectures and conducts workshops with farmers and the general public on coffee related topics. His business, Coffea Consulting, educates farmers and connoisseurs on coffee from a scientific standpoint. Working with small farmers is a passion for Steiman, who has traveled to Zambia to help smallholder coffee growers compete in the world coffee market. He was a contributing editor to the recently released textbook, Coffee: A Comprehensive Guide to the Bean, the Beverage and the Industry (Rowman & Littlefield, 2013).
Absolutely a great read for anyone who wants to know more about coffee, thinks they know it all, or admits to knowing nothing at all. This really is approachable to almost anyone, and is full of great knowledge. Easy to read from page to page, or jumping around to sections that interest you.
This book is amazing! Set up like a FAQ page, it’s easy to read about one topic or devour the whole book in one sitting! It’s easy to read, extremely informative, and makes coffee even more fun. I wish I could find a book like this about topics other than coffee too!
