Editorial Reviews

"Kenneth Davids writes with authority and panache. There''s no one I''d rather read and learn from. He''ll turn your kitchen into the espresso bar of your dreams-and the more aspiring baristas who read this book, the safer the country will be for the new world of lattes sweeping the nation." --Corby Kummer, The Atlantic Monthly

"Kenneth Davids''s new book blends the myths and history with the technology and culture that create this nouveau art form we call ''espresso.'' It''s the perfect companion while enjoying the pleasures of this magnificent beverage." --Ted R. Lingle, director of the Speciality Coffee Association
