Review

The World Atlas of Coffee...takes ambitious as its starting point and then shoots for exhaustive. It doesn't hit that crazy a level of detail, which is lucky for us because it remains at once packed and approachable. Just one example: in the section on Burundi, Hoffmann details fourteen growing regions. It's a book coffee professionals and enthusiasts alike should not just add to their libraries but dog-ear and highlight. Opening with the history, production, retail, and brewing of coffee, Hoffmann spends more than a hundred pages at origin, giving special attention to traceability. Designed with gorgeous photography and an eye to draw readers through the sometimes bewildering process of brewing a simple cup of coffee, The World Atlas of Coffee is a book you'll spend as much time looking at as reading.--Cory Eldridge"Fresh Cup Magazine" (11/05/2014)

One of the world's favorite beverages is dissected in this encyclopedia that introduces the coffee plant and its harvesting, processing, and trade and discusses the buying and preparation of the drink before embarking on a world coffee tour. This voyage takes up most of the title and includes information on the history and current state of coffee growing, processing, and consumption in sections on Africa, Asia, and the Americas. A strength of the book are the numerous, often full-spread photos, of coffee at every stage from fruit to cup. An unusual offering that will be of value in collections serving agriculture, business, and nutrition students.--Henrietta Verma"Library Journal" (12/01/2014)

This single-volume "all you want to know about coffee"book fills a gap in the popular reference literature. Though the title uses the more academic word atlas, this is actually a readable work on coffee, albeit arranged by continent and then by region. It seeks to provide information on where coffee is grown, the people who grow it, and the coffee culture at large. The book begins with an introduction to coffee and the process of getting from the bean to the cup. The atlas portion contains 30 pages covering Africa; 22 pages, Asia; and 68 pages, the Americas. As seen in other Firefly books, it is profusely illustrated with color plates. Recommended for circulating collections at libraries where interest in coffee is high.--Jerry Carbone"Booklist" (12/15/2014)

For the coffee geek if you don't know the difference between the coffee varieties Arabica and Robusta, if you're wondering how coffee cultivation in Ethiopia differs from that in Costa Rica, if you're confused about the myriad methods of brewing coffee, you won't find a better resource than "The World Atlas of Coffee: From Beans to Brewing--Coffees Explored, Explained and Enjoyed." Even confirmed coffee geeks will benefit from this volume, at once encyclopedic and approachable.--Erica Marcus"The Tampa Bay Ledger" (12/30/2014)

Professionals and enthusiasts alike will love this beautiful book by James Hoffmann. From overviews of the world's most vibrant coffee-growing regions, to step-by-step brewing tutorials, the content is educational, thought-provoking, and substantial. I've already recommended this book to Barista Magazine readers countless times.--Sarah Allen, Editor"Barista Magazine" (07/01/2015)

Exploring the origins, growing regions, harvesting and every step of the production process author James Hoffmann provides a fascinating look at the world of coffee. Starting with an examination of the coffee plant, the varieties, how it is harvested, Hoffmann clearly explains each stage. The second part of the book presents details on the journey from bean to cup, with information on every option for roasting and brewing. The last section examines all of the 29 coffee-growing countries. Colour photographs fill the pages and bring to life the diversity of locations and the people involved.--Terry Peters"North Shore News" (11/16/2016)

Nothing like a good cup of coffee! Coffee tasting bars are springing up everywhere along with coffee tourism--learn where it comes from and why it tastes a certain way. This last word on coffee provides maps, beautiful photography, taste profiles and great new ways to enjoy coffee! Aficionados will enjoy reading this along with their morning "shot"!--Ann Coombs"Annual Holiday Gift Guide List 2015" (12/01/2015) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I know the author from the Home-Barista website. I knew even before reading that it will be a good book. However, after having bought it I can now confirm that this is indeed an excellent book. The compilation, with a lot of pictures, is styled to make it a "Coffee Table Book" ironically on the subject of coffee!

I leave it near my coffee machine for people to browse through. Guests invariably quiz me on coffee when they see my home coffee setup. Now, as it happens, I can just hand them this book to browse through as they sip a fresh cappuccino or a macchiato that I have just poured out using home roasted beans.

Very interesting read, packed full of facts and interesting bits of info. Really opens your eyes to the world of coffee. Written by a World Barista Champion and co-founder of the great Square Mile roasters in London, this had a lot to live up to and it certainly does. Highly recommended for anyone into their coffee and interested in finding out more about how it's grown, processed and roasted.

Present for the hubby who is a coffee fanatic. He buys his own green beans and roasts it himself and then grinds his beans before every brew. He says the book is very informative and comprehensive, he is very happy with it.

I found this book interesting, engaging, informative without being at all patronising. Even though I'd done a bit of reading about coffee previously, there was lots of new information in it and some things I already knew presented in better context or with a new slant.

The book itself feels really substantial and high quality, and there are some great photos in it for visual interest.
