The Professional Barista's Handbook by Scott Rao: Expert's Guide to Preparing Espresso, Coffee and Tea

Posted on July 2, 2009 by

Have I mentioned recently that I love this book?  Because I do.  And it’s worth mentioning again.  Because even if you haven’t visited Scott’s stomping grounds (Cafe Myriade in Montreal), you can still appreciate the level of dedication that Scott brings to our craft.

And even if you haven’t visited Cafe Myriade, you can rest assured that they’re not waiting for you to make improvements:

But even if you’re not a Fleetwood Mac fan (what? really? c’mon…), if you’re reading this chances are you’re a coffee fan.  And if you’re a coffee fan, you should own a copy of The Professional Barista’s Handbook.  Whether you’re a home barista, work in a cafe, or own a cafe, I guarantee you won’t regret this purchase.  If you live in Montana, they give autographed copies of the book away as prizes!  So seriously.  Order a copy.  It changes all you thought about coffee.  No brewer’s library is complete without it.
