Written by James Hoffmann - coffee expert, 2007 World Barista Champion and co-founder of Square Mile Coffee Roasters in London, The World Atlas of Coffee is a beautiful world guide to the brown bean.
Taking the reader on a global tour of coffee-growing countries, it presents the bean in full-color photographs and concise, informative text. It shows the origins of coffee, where it is grown, the people who grow it, the cultures in which coffee is a way of life, processing, grades, the consumer and the modern culture of coffee.
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.
