The Barrista’s Bible – Espresso Coffee 2013: Tools, Techniques and Theory

1996 edition comments

Excellent resource for coffee professionals and beginners.

Most Practical Espresso book in the Market

What a fantastic book for the experienced and aspiring baristi. At the coffee shop that I work at all the staff are required to read this book and for good reasons too. It goes over the essential components of what makes good espresso, such as:

-Roasting methods
-Proper storage of the beans
-Burr grinder settings and maintenance
-Espresso machine temperature
-Proper dosing, distribution, and packing techniques
-Machine cleanliness

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

And that is only a hint of what Schomer has to offer as far as pulling the perfect shot of espresso goes. After reading this book through my shots have improved tremendously.

The author takes his coffee very seriously so if you aren’t that serious about coffee then you may be a bit intimidated or weirded out by his enthusiasm.

But for fellow coffee geeks this book is golden!
