Review - A Coffee Lover's Guide To Coffee



238 pages; $4.99; Amazon
Just because you are a big coffee drinker (like me), doesn't mean you know every single thing about coffee.

Available now to read on Amazon Kindle is A Coffee Lover's Guide To Coffee by Shlomo Stern, a very detailed eBook that explains everything there needs to know about my making one cup of coffee.

Did you know the first coffee shop opened in 1475 in Constantinople, Turkey?

Did you know the first instant coffee was patented in New Zealand in 1890?

You'll learn where a coffee tree is planted around the world, how the coffee beans are processed and roasted to perfection. Learn about the different tastes/flavors of coffee.

The book goes into detail about the different stages of roasting as well as the the best ways to grind and store the coffee beans/grounds. There are also chapters on instant coffees, decaffeinated coffees, coffee brewing methods, everything espresso related, milk frothing, different coffee beverages, and much more.

Final Thoughts: Wow! I wasn't aware there were so many different ways to make a single cup of coffee. This book gives you a quick history on anything related to coffee. From where the beans are picked, to the different ways the beans are roasted, lastly, to the different ways the coffees are brewed. Overall, A Coffee Lover's Guide To Coffee is an intriguing read for any coffee lover.

About the Author: "I worked for many years as an IT manager for various well-known hi-tech companies. Whatever spare time I had was invested in my love for coffee. Whereas at first I drank Middle-Eastern black coffee, I moved to espresso when the first home espresso machines appeared on the market. At first the espresso I prepared was mediocre, especially when compared to the quality espresso I had tasted in Italy. This led me research what factors affect the quality of espresso, and gradually my preparations improved. I attempted my own roast, first in a frying pan, then in the oven, in a popcorn machine , and finally with a professional roaster. This book is the result of my years of research.
In the last few years, I have made my hobby my profession. We have opened a shop that sells quality coffee roasted and blended by myself, in addition to espresso machines and coffee accessories."

  1. This book sounds fascinating as my husband and I do love coffee, especially when it is grown organically to help the songbirds.
