Product Description

Amazon Review

Don't let the cover of Claudia Roden's little book Coffee: A Connoisseur's Companion put you off. Inside is a veritable treasure of interesting stories, anecdotes and facts about coffee--all beautifully illustrated with lovely ink and colour drawings by Murray Zanoni. First published in the early 1980s, Roden offers a scholarly yet entertaining look at the history of coffee. From its exotic beginnings in Africa and Arabia, coffee swept through Europe and the Americas in he 17th century, profoundly changing patterns of life as it went. Although it suffered religious persecution, social prejudice and fierce political opposition, coffee reigned supreme and was soon being grown in prodigious quantities around the world. Roden explains the labour-intensive processes of growing coffee and preparing the beans, provides an invaluable guide to the quality beans of the world and dispenses expert advice on all the steps of coffee preparation, from buying to brewing. The final section is devoted to recipes: heart-warming coffee punches, refreshing iced coffee and frothy frappés, as well as delicious coffee cakes and desserts. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Claudia Roden has produced a fine work on the subject of coffee. Embodied with her own experiences , this book is one of the best coffee -themed materials I have come across. If someone wants to learn about the art of coffee , COFFEE is a perfect start and a very good companion for the future connoisseurs. The book itself has everything someone wants to learn about coffee : its history , the kinds of coffee and their characteristics , recipes of coffee-based sweets etc. Definetely an excellent choice!

I could not have believed there was so much to write about coffee. Interesting, engagingly written, and beautifully designed and illustrated too. A delight.

A nice little book. Nothing weighty about it. Some recipe ideas are given towards the end. Casual reading. Dare I say a "coffee table book"?
