If you like to kick-start your day with a really good cup of coffee, this book is for you!
Spilling the beans on how to to get the best cup of coffee from your equipment - whether you use a plunger, filter, stovetop or full-blown espresso machine.
This book can help you to taste the difference. For the professional Barista in all of us - learn from the professionals and enhance your enjoyment of coffee.
OK, now, I don't drink coffee... never acquired the taste for it. But having worked behind the counter at one of New Zealand's first Internet Cafes, and having to make Espresso coffee for zombie-faced patrons at all hours of the day and night, I soon learned a few tricks... and I was very gratified to find, after reading this book, that I hadn't been as far off the mark as I once thought.
Sure, there are some new tricks in here (I'd never even heard of a Affogato before, and frankly it worries me such a beverage exists!) but for anyone who has never really had the need to learn how to take a handful of beans and turn them into something wonderful, then this is a real eye-opener... one that should be right next to the coffee making gear in every kitchen that services a coffee drinker.
If you drink 'the dark gold', and haven't even read this book, you are sadly depriving yourself of one of the greatest opportunities available at the moment. There are rules to making this drink properly - and they exist for a reason. You are probably drinking coffee of a standard far below that your equipment is capable of making... and if you DARE say that you are fine with Instant, then you are not a *real* coffee drinker at all.
Overall, no matter what method you use, if you start with beans, or pre-ground coffee, then you *NEED* this book. Seriously. You'll know the reason why after your first cup.
Random listing from 'Books'...
Deep in the forest, a very bad bear is baking a fabulous pie. All the woodland animals want to help him find the perfect filling, so they bring him their favourite foods: berries, nuts, honey and salmon. But the bear has a better idea for what can go in the pie... the animals themselves!
With wonderfully humorous illustrations from the internationally bestselling Guy Parker-Rees and a superb rhyming text from Gareth Edwards, the creators of NEVER ASK A DINOSAUR TO DINNER are on fine form with this fun-filled romp through the forest.
