Hi all,

I am sure that this has already been covered somewhere on these forums but when I used the search function then it didn't pull anything up...

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone can recommend me some good books on coffee? I want all processes, from the farming and growing, to the roasting, to the actual making of the coffee. I am currently studying hands on at the farms/roasters etc but I am after some reading material to back my knowledge up too.

Better if it's some well known books as English books can be a little tricky to get hold of here in Thailand but I can always order it in I guess.

Thanks in advance!

Gareth

hello gareth,
probably it would be the best to google / youtube to learn as much as possible.
it will be easier than a book.
sweet maria has one of the best and you can check SCAA page also.
thanks

Thanks for the replies!

Yes, I have of course been reading up on here and on other websites to learn more but was looking for a little bedtime reading also. Don't want to be glued to my laptop all of the time...

Thank-you, I will check them out :)

I know what you mean. I would much rather read a book instead of a computer screen.

Where are you in the process? Are you a beginner who wants to understand the origin of coffee, or have you progressed further?

Blue Bottle "Craft of Coffee" is a good choice for a start. It has plenty of interesting things to keep you busy reading for a while. It also has recipes at the back of the book, which you can either look through or skip over.

If you're looking for some history of the progression of coffee: "Uncommon Grounds - The History of Coffee and How it Transformed the World" by Mark Pendergrast is a good choice. I enjoyed reading that one too.

I recently bought "Bean Business Basics" - 3rd Edition (I bought it "used" on Amazon, and it looks like it's brand new). I haven't had time to read it, but it looks like there is some very interesting stuff in the book.

Yes, also when travelling then it is great to sit back with a book to relax with too.

I am not sure where I would place myself now. I was a beginner not too long ago for sure but now I have been doing a lot of studying and hands - on work both at the farm and at the roasters themselves. I still have a lot more to learn though! I understand about the whole process of coffee now (I still want to read up on this a little) but I need to study more into the cultural aspects as well as the business side too.

OK, thank - you. I will see if I can get hold of those and they should keep me busy for a while!

You can read "The World Atlas of Coffee" a very interesting book. It's just what you need if you want to learn a lot more about coffee, especially if you do it with the pleasure of brewing a fragrant cup. At least that's what I used to do in the mornings, brew my coffee, grab my phone, and then sit in my chair and start reading this book that I downloaded on thepiratesbay, that's the secret to enjoyment.

I read "Dear Coffee Buyer" by Ryan Braun

I took a week to finish this book because I was enjoying so much that I don't want to finish quick and also want to soak it up as much as possible :).

Very very nicely present your sourcing green coffee journey with the illustrations made on book are also so great.

I highly recommend this book if someone wants to know about sourcing green coffee.

I was recently told that it can be found online for free
