    Must Have for Coffee Lovers

    When you rush to have that first cup of coffee in the morning, have you ever wondered about the origin of coffee or how it came to be a beverage? Authors Mary Banks, Christine McFadden and Catherine Atkinson have written a book that is a must have for coffee lovers, THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COFFEE: The Definitive Guide to Coffee, From Simple Bean to Irresistible Beverage. This informative book takes coffee lovers on a fascinating journey starting with the history of coffee. It explores the myths, mysteries, and legends. It discusses customs and rituals, as well as conflicts over coffee drinking. Once in Europe coffee was deemed to be medicine and was used by doctors, herbalist, midwives and chemists during the 17th century. From there the debate began about the pros and cons of drinking coffee and how it affects a person’s health. There is a section on brewing coffee and the idea method to achieve the perfect cup of delicious beverage. The book also tells about where coffee comes from and follows it on its path. It describes the various types of coffee beans and their properties. The section on ‘The Art of Coffee Drinking’ is amazing and very detailed. The various methods of preparing coffee are discussed and shown in vivid color step-by-step photographs. To top off this intriguing book are sections featuring delicious recipes including coffee as an ingredient. Each recipe is accompanied by beautiful, rich color photos showing not only the end results, but step-by-step procedures in preparing the dish. I only discovered one drawback to this tantalizing paperback book – the print was too small for my tired eyes, but a magnifying page overcame that obstacle. THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COFFEE is packed full of amazing tidbits of coffee history and information. The recipes are stunning. Anyone who truly enjoys coffee will enjoy this book. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
