Coffee Roasting Best Practices Book by Scott Rao
Scott SaysWhen I wrote The Coffee Roasters Companion in 2014, it was difficult to know how to present my ideas on roasting. The coffee industry lacked much of the shared vocabulary and understanding needed to have productive discussions about roasting, and most roasters seemed hesitant to share their ideas, perhpas dur to fear of giving away secrets or fear of being wrong.
Meet Author, Scott Rao
"When I began in the coffee business in 1992, I read every book I could find about coffee. However, after reading all of those books I felt as if I had not learned much about how to make great coffee. My coffee library was chock-full of colorful descriptions of brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable scientific books mixed in. I would have traded in all of those books for one serious, practical book with relevant information about making great coffee in a cafe. Fourteen years later, I still hadn't found that book, so I decided to write it myself. These two books are my attempt to give baristas what I had been missing all of those years." ~ Scott Rao
