Coffee - Grounds for Debate - Heavy Coffee table book,
This review is from: Coffee - Philosophy for Everyone: Grounds for Debate (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this book for my husband with him being such a big 'coffee' fan.
The book itself delves deeper into just what and where your coffee comes from, it goes right down to the nitty gritty of the whole process, the origins, beliefs and a whole lot more.
Not just your quick 'coffee book' read, but a real intellectual book, a little too heavy going for myself in places .... husband well he still hasn't read it thoroughly yet..... maybe he too thought it to be a light hearted fun way of looking at the coffee trade.
Interesting but a big deep read ..... if you don't like coffee one to leave.
The one thing that did strike me was that it is all in American speak ..... yes, easy to find great coffee houses with fresh beans in USA but in quiet little villages a different matter (the beans are never that fresh and when asking how old are the beans? Well may as well be asking in a different lanaguage.
Coffee is big business but you really do have to get it right.
