For coffee enthusiasts everywhere, a charming handbook to becoming your own favorite barista

More than 100 million Americans start each day with a cup of coffee (many at no small price)! It's a fact: We love coffee. Now, in The Home Barista, two professionals reveal the secrets to brewing coffee worthy of the priciest cafés right in your own kitchen.

  • Master the elusive espresso (by refining tamp, time, and temperature).
  • Create barista-worthy milk texture and foam designs.
  • Try seven different ways to brew--from the French press to the Turkish ibrik.

About the Author



Simone Egger writes for The Age Good Food Guide and Epicure. She has authored books for adults and children and used to write guidebooks for Lonely Planet.
