Everything but espresso: Professional coffee brewing techniques. Montreal, Canada: Scott Rao. Scott Rao, author of “The Professional Baristas Handbook” and “Everything But Espresso”, has penned a brand new e-book available now on.
With single cup brewing the devil really is in the detail. I agree, this book is essential. I like how Scott guides the reader through concepts and thoughts that could easily be misunderstood, especially in the grinding chapter and the difference between body and flavor.
His graphic understanding is also very satisfying, at last explaining what was for me at the tip of the tounge but now I can explain with more confidence and with a better choice of words.
In so many ways, this is an important book for baristas so that they can educate the customer with a deeper and more holistic approach. As for comparisons, I agree there are none out there. I belive the Tim WendelBook is coming in english at wbc? So they fill each their needs, which is great. Very technical and introduces some new insights to the science of coffee extraction.

Feb 16, Orlando rated it really liked it. The first half of the book that gets into the technical details of coffee brewing, like what contributes to body vs flavor clarity, is the best part.

Thankfully he breaks down ALL the terminology and conveys it as if you're back in middle school, so it's highly educational and informative. One person found this helpful. So I was excited to read Everything But Espresso--it does not disappoint. Espresso and espresso drinks are wonderful, but my preference is to enjoy these at a great cafe.
Brewed coffee--whether drip, French press, pour over, siphon, or Aeropress--is my preference at home. Brewing consistently great coffee is more difficult than you might think, but Scott Rao does a fantastic job of explaining how to do it. There is also a great deal of information that clarifies the why's behind the how's, which I think sets this book apart from others.
This is an absolute must for anyone who is serious about preparing and serving great coffee. Chris Young Coauthor, Modernist Cuisine.
