About the Author
Kevin Sinnott, host of the soon-to-be released "Coffee Brewing Secrets" instructional video, and coffeecompanion.com website is America's foremost consumer coffee authority. In 1995, at the onset of America's still-vibrant fascination with all things coffee, Sinnott created THE COFFEE COMPANION, the first-ever consumer publication about finding and brewing the world's best coffee. The COFFEE COMPANION, which achieved a readership of more than 10,000 coffee lovers, offered Sinnott's unbiased evaluations of what he calls "hardware" - all the equipment necessary to brew great tasting coffee, from water filters to coffee bean grinders to brewers.

Tracing the beverage from its first appearance in the Turkish and Saudi Arabian coffeehouses of the 1500s to the chains and boutique shops of today, Sinnott's guide to primo coffee enables readers to fill their cups to the rim... with greatness. Readers will learn the differing qualities of producing countries (good acidity but light body from Peru; the distinctive Liberica espresso from Laos), the particulars of roasting, and even the best times to buy and brew. Sinnott deftly navigates the thorny issues of production, preferring to focus on the enjoyment of the product. Even readers who don't know their Arabica from their Robusta or a French Press from a percolator will appreciate Sinnott's informative and egalitarian approach; suggestions are the order of the day, not mandates. Whether the barista-to-be prefers to create custom blends to roast at home in the hopes of an ultimate cup, or simply wants to get a better pot from the auto drip she bought for $20, Sinnott's guide will result in a better cup of joe.
