I read it within hours of being posted, and it was worth every penny and then some. Llewellyn, thanks for the kind words.
But look for a big, exciting hardcover book not about espresso,though in about six months. It will be full of interesting info and probably some conjecture as well.

I wouldn't recommend it for someone as their very first exposure to coffee roasting, but if you've read a summary or two first, or even roasted a batch or two already, then this is the logical next step. Most of what I read in here I had heard before or had already assumed, but it's nice to have it so succinctly written in one place.
His "3 Commandments" were new to me when this book was written, and I plan on giving them more of a t This book offers quite a good introduction to roasting coffee. His "3 Commandments" were new to me when this book was written, and I plan on giving them more of a try in the next few weeks. While the science isn't too difficult for the layperson to grasp, this isn't exactly a detailed book regarding roast profiles. The author earns his living as a coffee consultant, so he seems to be keeping the best parts to himself.
More in-depth discussion of roast profiles for different beans, roasters, and flavors are the only thing lacking, but that would take away from the entry-level nature of this book. Perhaps a second book could cover that material, but it may have to be written by another author who isn't worried about giving away trade secrets.
All in all, a good book and one more people should read. We need more people roasting fresh, tasty coffee.
