    The book launch is today at SCA Expo so hopefully we will see a bit more... I've only seen this brief promo: Roast Magazine Releasing Authoritative, 461-Page ?Book of Roast? | Daily Coffee News by Roast Magazine

    They have added a downloadable table of content: http://roastmagazine.com/resources/B...OfContents.pdf

    Just got my copy yesterday! Haven't had time to read through it, but at first glance it appears like a complete reference A-Z. I will let you know my thoughts when I get a chance to read it thoroughly.

    Yes, I am curious as well. I had recently purchased Scott Rao's Roasting Companion book but have not yet made my way through it.

    hello Mr. Peaberry, it has been a while since you had this book.
    can you share with us what is great about this book? compared to getting information from youtube or via web search?

    Hey Alex,

    Haven't yet ordered the book. Waiting to get some feedback. Maybe John will grace us with a critique!

    From my understanding most of this is simply reprints of Roast magazine...

    That's unfortunate if that is, in fact, the case. The price point suggest a little bit more of an original work then just a compilation or reprints of previous articles. Previous articles can be assembled from what already exists and can get passed around outside of the perceived need 4 book ownership

    At least that's how I read it... I do see the price point as fair... its less expensive than buying the archives and its bound in one place. And Roast magazine is typically a quality read.

    "The 461-page book includes an astounding wealth of content from the Roast archives, including dozens of long-form pieces penned by authoritative specialists in the industry in areas such as coffee roasting, coffee production and processing, green coffee buying, storage, transportation and defects, roasting equipment and techniques, the science of coffee and coffee roasting, cupping and sensory evaluation, quality control, blending, decaffeination, packaging, and business basics."
