Overview

The Hawai'i Coffee Book: A Gourmet's Guide from Kona to Kaua'i is the first-ever comprehensive overview of the Islands' most recognizable and highly coveted product. Coffee scientist and consultant Shawn Steiman's revealing new book is the definitive work on the subject, including a region-by-region guide and flavor profiles of the major varieties cultivated in the Islands, listings of farms offering tours, cafés that roast on-site, and detailed information on where Hawai'i-grown coffees can be purchased in person or online.

In addition, the book includes more than a dozen recipes for cooking with coffee, complete with mouthwatering photography. Ranging from entrées of lamb and 'ahi to desserts that go beyond brulées and brownies, many of the recipes are past winners of the annual Kona Coffee Festival Cooking Contest.

This comprehensive coffee book also dispenses tips on coffee appreciation and provides a thorough education on coffee essentials. Common questions such as, “Is it really a good idea to refrigerate my coffee?” and, “How do I brew the perfect pot of coffee?” are answered in an easy-to-digest sidebar format. A resource for everyone, even coffee fanatics who might think they know it all about their favorite beverage, The Hawai'i Coffee Book addresses all aspects of the coffee industry and culture, from ethical farming to roasting techniques and coffee tasting to events and festivals.

Shawn Steiman is Hawaii's own "Doctor Coffee," with a PhD from the University of Hawai'i-Manoa specializing in coffee studies. Steiman frequently lectures and conducts workshops with farmers and the general public on coffeerelated topics. His recently launched business, Coffea Consulting, educates farmers and connoisseurs on coffee from a scientific standpoint. Working with small farmers is a passion for Steiman, who has traveled to Zambia to help smallholder coffee growers compete in the world coffee market.
