I love reading about coffee, almost as much as I like drinking it. Almost! I’ve read just about every book on coffee that I can find from a non-fiction book about fair trade to a mystery book set in coffee shops and everything in between.
If there’s a coffee lover on your list, I put together a list of the best coffee related books that they might want to unwrap on Christmas morning. Everything is covered from the history of coffee for someone that loves coffee and wants to learn more, to in-depth books about fair trade for the coffee geek that wants to know about where their coffee grows.
This is the perfect book for the coffee lover that wants to know everything about their favorite beverage. I’ve read a number of books about coffee in general, this was one of my favorites. It was a fun, easy read but still was loaded with information about the bean and it’s history.
Is another fun book for the person on your list that loves their morning beverage. It’s about a regular guy who has downed a lot of bad cups of coffee, that is now in search of a holy grail of coffee.
The perfect coffee table book for a coffee lover. It’s full of great pictures and covers everything from picking the right coffee, brewing it and even roasting it if they really want to get into an awesome hobby.
Brewing Justice is not a fun easy read. In fact, it’s kind of text book like and it may even be used as a text book in some classrooms. However, if the coffee geek on your list is into fair trade and likes knowing where there coffee comes from, this is the book from.
Javatrekker is for the similar person who wants to know about their origins of their coffee beans, but it’s a whole lot easier to read. It’s like the reader is with Dean Cycon, the author as he travels around the world visiting differing coffee growing countries.
Must have coffee book if you’re shopping for someone that knows the differences between Ehtiopian Yirgacheffes and Panama Hacienda La Esmeralda or wants to know the difference. This book takes the coffee drinker into the world of third wave coffee and when these specialty roasters get their beans.
What’s your favorite coffee book or what book do you hope to find under the tree this Christmas?
