Remember the days when "heavenly coffee" came straight out of a vacuum-sealed can? No longer--this is the age of specialty coffees, and selecting a great bean is almost as complicated as choosing a fine wine. What's the difference between medium roast, high roast, and French roast? Should you use a French press or a percolator to brew your dream cup? And what's the difference between cappuccino, latte, and café au lait, anyway? All these questions and more are answered in The Coffee Companion, a trim little volume to guide you through the coffee conundrum, from buying the beans to brewing them.

In addition to describing and rating more than 150 coffees from around the world, The Coffee Companion includes tips on roasting, grinding, and blending your own beans to create the perfect brew. There are also plenty of delectable recipes for making classic coffee beverages. So if you're particular about the coffee you drink, don't leave home without The Coffee Companion.
