The Coffee Dictionary
Mr B's review
There are few places in Bath we recommend more often than coffee paradise Colonna & Smalls. Its owner, Maxwell, travelled the world in search of ever-increasing coffee knowledge, and his enthusiasm is as contagious on the page as in person. This is no run-of-the-mill encyclopaedia of brewing methods, however. Read about everything from the ‘silver skin’ (the layer which separates coffee cherries), to Nordic coffee culture and the World Barista Championship (in which, incidentally, Maxwell was a finalist).
An A-Z compendium of everything you need to know about coffee, from a champion barista.
Coffee is more popular than ever before – and more complex. The Coffee Dictionary is the coffee drinker’s guide to the dizzying array of terms and techniques, equipment and varieties that go into creating the perfect cup.
With hundreds of entries on everything from sourcing, growing and harvesting, to roasting, grinding and brewing, three-time UK champion barista and coffee expert Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood explains the key factors that impact the taste of your drink.
Illustrated throughout and covering anything from country of origin, variety of bean and growing and harvesting techniques to roasting methods, brewing equipment, tasting notes – as well as the many different coffee-based drinks – The Coffee Dictionary is the final word on coffee.
