Comments to eBook The Art and Craft of Coffee: An Enthusiast's Guide to Selecting, Roasting, and Brewing Exquisite Coffee

I have received this book just a few days ago. The book itself looks nice, illustrations are reasonably good, and plenty.
It has multiple chapters on just about everything you need to know about coffee, from selecting, to roasting, to brewing in a variety of ways.
It could be a great book, but there are many mistakes and inaccuracies here
I will not list everything I disagree, or everything most authors disagree. Such differences are always open to interpretation and each own's opinion. So those really do not matter - it is actually good to hear different opinions.
However, I can mention certain things that are clearly wrong.
The roasting part has two sections that discuss how "done" the coffee is. The first one, a pictorial, describes espresso as number 4, from 1 (lightest) to 6 (darkest). Later on, when discussing how to get there, all of a sudden espresso is the darkest of them all, even more so than vienna or french (which come after espresso as 5 and 6 just a few pages before).
Furthermore, when describing how to achieve each level, some of the roast levels have no difference whatsoever, same instructions for two different levels of roasting, suggesting to someone that certain roast levels are achieved the exact same way (it is not, late in the roasting seconds make quite a lot of difference). The author goes as far as state on his roasting section that every single roast, even the lightest, is carried until after second crack. It should be mentioned that is the difference between most light and dark roasts - the former end roasting before second crack, the latter afterwards. Basic roasting knowledge.
There is another section in the book that calls the rust (a disease of coffee bushes) as caused by fungus. It is later called a virus. From there, more mistakes accumulate through the book, but I honestly gave up finishing the book.
How can you trust any information from a book that does not even agree to itself and is full of very clear and obvious inaccuracies?
In short, basic information that you can find for free everywhere, in a nice looking book full of mistakes and inaccuracies. Lots of better options out there.

I have been drinking premium coffee/espresso for about 20 years and roasting myself for about 3 years. I thought this book was a very terse, to the point primer on coffee. Easy reading and short with great advice about coffee sourcing and roasting basics. Even though I have a little experience with coffee, I still learned quite a bit from this book.

I am taking 1 star off for the following reasons.

1. In the Kindle edition the pictures are not synced properly with the captions. A caption will show up after you have flipped 3 pages past the pictures.
2. In the roasting section he described espresso roast as being beyond Vienna. I have many friends that roast and neither I nor they roast their espresso that dark. I am in contact with about 10 home roasters, none of them ever roast beyond Vienna and usually target Full City + since that is the easiest to benchmark. I usually do Full City myself for a LeLit PL53 grinder with a Simonelli Nouva HX machine, depends on the beans I might go a little darker. Later on in the "espresso" section he says that better espresso can be achieved with a lighter roast. Maybe the editing is not so good.
3. He attempted to make the case that roasting yourself can be more expensive. This may be dated information or his bean source is very expensive. I generally pay about 6.50 to $7 including shipping per pound, sometimes a pay up to $15 a pound but very rarely. Premium at the supermarket runs at about 1.10/ounce or $16.60 a pound. Even with 10% loss after roasting I'm still almost half the cost. My worst roasts are generally better than super market premium coffees (which are generally stale and charred anyway ) and my typical roasts are better than most local roasters where I live.

I love this book!
I saw Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World at a coffee bar while on vacation. While browsing that book on amazon, I saw this book also and bought it on my kindle fire. I have been brewing and drinking coffee for years and never even thought about a study of how to brew coffee well. I thought get a coffeemaker, add grinds and water and you're done. Was I ever wrong! When I got back home from vacation, I stepped up my game!
Excellent coffee starts with the bean, how it is picked (give it one year to be fresh) how it is roasted locally (give it a week or two, and some people roast at home) how it is ground (I now grind at home right before brewing) how is is brewed or extracted (I already had a French Press which I use more often and I also got a new excellent brewer) and my coffee enjoyment has gone up light years!
Highly recommend this book to learn so much more and to become a coffee enthusiast! I thought I knew coffee, but this took my game to a whole new level!
This book is a start to opening my world. Highly recommend!

This book is succinct but very informative. I'm more of a beginner with coffee, but I shared details of this book with friends of mine who are much more advanced and they found some of this information new to them. So I think it's good for beginners and more advanced folks.

I have so far learned about which countries have coffee that I would probably like most. And I have learned how to best make french press coffee and cleaning and maintenance tips. The book also got me interested in trying to make turkish coffee at home which I plan to do soon.
Also information on history of coffee was quite interesting to me from this book.

Informative, and helpful.

If you enjoy coffee, this book is for you! Beautiful color photos, and information relating the history of coffee. Works well as a nice coffee table book, I see this more as something you flip through and peruse the information, not necessarily read from cover to cover. We've had guests choose this from a stack of coffee table books to take a closer look. My fiancee picked up some great roasting tips as well.
