This book is entertaining and informative. Whether you use it as a reference or if you intend to read it from cover to cover (as I did) you will enjoy the time you have spent reading it. "Coffee" covers every aspect of coffee from growing to serving. What I enjoyed most about the author's writing style is how logically he backs his statements using simple and to-the-point explanations. The author shows little to no bias when presenting the material. Whether you are a casual coffee drinker or you have aspirations of becoming a "coffee snob," the author merely informs and lets you decide by offering the pros and cons of every option available. As good of a quality as this is, at times I wanted to know what the author prefers, so that I could use his preferences as a starting point for my own experiments. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book.

"Well there's not really much to know. I come from a small town. I like music, I draw a little bit. Its never good though. Never as good as you." He slides into his chair little bit and sips his coffee to warm up. "I'm a big animal finatic. I plan on having a white and grey huskey with bright blue eyes and a big white snow tiger. I don't really know. My friends all call me a hussy cause I'm more sensitive than them. I believe they'er just jealous." He starts smiling and shows a set of perfect white teeth.
