Kenneth Davids writes a lot of information on history and the art of making espresso coffee

He teaches writing and history at the California College of Arts and Crafts and writes a number of coffee industry publications and Web sites. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kenneth Davids writes a lot of information on history and the art of making espresso coffee. The only thing that really bothered me was his method of writing. At times it was very clear, then it dropped off when it became more interesting, almost like "running out of room.

Kenneth Davids is THE coffee guru, and has been for as long as I've been in the business, around 25 years. This book is not as fascinating as "Coffee", which, if you're interested in coffee, you just CANNOT put down! It DOES have all the facts you could ever as for, however. Don't not buy it if you want the info straight from the horse's mouth. (so to speak)

I found this book to have some valuable information, especially in regards to historical background on origins of the espresso machine. I must say that it did seem to be a bit outdated at times. I know the last published date was 2001, however, it felt like most of it was from the original 1993 edition. I live in Seattle now so even comments made back in 2001 are already outdated. The organization of the book is a little awkward at first and you will find some redundancy in content throughout the book (in particular information about types of machines).

If you are looking for a book heavy in skills that will help to make you a better barista, whether profession or even skilled amateur at home, you will find some good tips in this book. However, I would instead highly recommend David Schomer's book Espresso Coffee: Professional Techniques, which is regarded by many as the barista bible.

Ken Davids writes with his usual engaging style and authority in terms of "cuisine de caffeine" [this is, after all, one of three of his coffee guides.] The style of the book itself, however, makes this a sometimes less than coherent read. Numerous sidebars [or, espresso breaks] weave their way throughout the volume, causing the reader to page forward and back through the text in an attempt to follow the thread of the conversation.
There's good stuff here -- and frankly I wish every barista wannabe behind the counter would be required to read it. If only somebody would revoke the publisher's stylistic license....
Kanrad
A very good guide for the home barista.

A GOOD COFFEE TABLE CONVERSATION BOOK IN THE GENERAL SENSE, NOT OVERLOADED WITH DETAILED INFORMATION BUT VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND FOLLOW.

This book gives a great basic introduction to espresso. It is not laden with jargon. Helps to take some of the mystique off of an often misunderstood coffee technique.

It more than fulfilled my expectations.
Kenneth Davids writes a lot of information on history and the art of making espresso coffee. The only thing that really bothered me was his method of writing. At times it was very clear, then it dropped off when it became more interesting, almost like "running out of room." The section on machines and equipment was fairly good, but it didn't give more details on each type of machine.
The source section was very limited on where to buy machines or coffee. Could have been better at rating coffee and machines.
The book was a little hard to read with very small type, and the monotone brown color of the illustrations.
