The World Atlas of Coffee: From Beans to Brewing – Coffees Explored, Explained and Enjoyed

I’ve already written 2 posts on coffee (links of those posts below) and don’t want to write about it again… but i recently got my hands on a book called, “The World Atlas of Coffee” by James Hoffmann. After read it, i decided to write a review because it’s a very good book for a coffee lover like me. Although i’ve read a lot of books about coffee and attended a Barista training course, i feel that this book gave me new pieces of information! 🙂 I learnt so much from it, like Robusta is a parent of Arabica and there are different varieties of Arabica coffee trees, and etc. The content of the book divides into 3 parts:

Part I: Introduction to Coffee – Coffee tree, fruit, harvesting and processing, as well as how coffee is traded

Part II: From Beans to Cup – Roasting, Grinding and Brewing… it’s even including the new “Aeropress”! 😀

Part III: Coffee Origins – Countries and regions in Africa, Asia & America where coffee beans are harvested

I enjoyed reading it a lot. The cover has a nice texture, similar to a burlap coffee bean bag. It’s full of beautiful images, pictures and maps. The book is informative and easy to read, so it’s highly recommended any coffee lovers out there!

Fun fact: “Caffe Latte did not originate in Italy.”
