'Written by a World Barista Champion and co-founder of the great Square Mile roasters in London, this had a lot to live up to and it certainly does. Highly recommended for anyone into their coffee and interested in finding out more about how it's grown, processed and roasted.' (Amazon customer) 'Whether you are an industry professional, a home enthusiast or anything in between, I truly believe this is a MUST read.' (Amazon customer) 'Informative, well-written and well presented. Coffee table and reference book - a winner' (Amazon customer) 'Very impressive. It's amazing how much territory is covered without overwhelming the reader. The abundant photos and images are absolutely coffee-table-worthy, but this book is so much more. I think it would be enjoyable for an obsessed coffee geek or someone who just enjoys their java.' (Amazon customer) For everyone who wants to understand more about coffee and its wonderful nuances and possibilities, this is the book to have. Coffee has never been better, or more interesting, than it is today. Coffee producers have access to more varieties and techniques than ever before and we, as consumers, can share in that expertise to make sure the coffee we drink is the best we can find. Where coffee comes from, how it was harvested, the roasting process and the water used to make the brew are just a few of the factors that influence the taste of what we drink. Champion barista and coffee expert James Hoffmann examines these key factors, looking at varieties of coffee, the influence of terroir, how it is harvested and processed, the roasting methods used, through to the way in which the beans are brewed. Country by country - from Bolivia to Zambia - he then identifies key characteristics and the methods that determine the quality of that country's output. Along the way we learn about everything from the development of the espresso machine, to why strength guides on supermarket coffee are really not good news. This is the first book to chart the coffee production of over 35 countries, encompassing knowledge never previously published outside the coffee industry.

It's this simple, vegetables are good for us, we don't eat enough of them and when we do, we don't always eat them in right way.

From revitalising morning juices, to midday booster fuel shots and restorative nutrient-dense juices to replenish your system in the evening, Pure will help you integrate vegetable juicing into your daily routine.

The juices, smoothies, milks, butters and even snacks (made from the pulp leftover from the juice) will improve your health and flood your system with the minerals, vitamins and energy that it needs throughout the day. The juicing revolution is starting and these are the cleanest, purest and healthiest juices you can have.

Champagne, Uncorked: The House of Krug and the Timeless Allure of the World's Most Celebrated Drink
The epitome of effervescence and centrepiece of celebration, Champagne has become a universal emblem of good fortune, and few can resist its sparkleIn Champagne, Uncorked , Alan Tardi journeys into the heartland of the world's most beloved wine. Anchored by the year he spent inside the prestigious and secretive Krug winery in Reims, the story follows the creation of the superlative Krug Grande Cuvee.Tardi also investigates the evocative history, quirky origins, and cultural significance of Champagne. He reveals how it became the essential celebratory toast ( merci Napoleon Bonaparte!), and introduces a cast of colourful characters, including Eugene Mercier, who in 1889 transported his Cathedral of Champagne, the largest wine cask in the world, to Paris by a team of white horses and oxen, and Joseph Krug, the reserved son of a German butcher who wound up in France, fell head over heels for Champagne, and risked everything to start up his own eponymous house.In the vineyards of Champagne, Tardi discovers how finicky grapes in an unstable climate can lead to a nerve-racking season for growers and winemakers alike. And he ventures deep into the caves , where the delicate and painstaking alchemy of blending takes place,all of which culminates in the glass we raise to toast life's finer moments.

Brewers, Brands and the pub in their hands
The British pub is a much-loved institution, but recent decades demonstrate how vulnerable it is, being subject to the vicissitudes of fashion, markets, licensing, the economy and most of all the structure of the industry as the big brewers have abandoned their heritage and been supplanted by the Pub Companies and Pub retail groups like Wetherspoons. The book describes the frequent and dramatic changes within the beer industry. It carefully examines the issues and enigmas over the last 50 years in a manner which will enlighten those less familiar with the licensed trade and may alter the perspective of those with closer connections. From the perspective of pub brands, the book examines why they suddenly took hold, how the branding process dovetailed with Nineties inner-city regeneration and why it was supported by some licensing magistrates but opposed by others. How did brands differ from traditional pubs and why were they undermined by them? Tony Thornton looks at community ownership as a vehicle for saving pubs, along with its flaws, and examines the critical role of CAMRA. Returning to the overall market, the book focuses on the battles between the Regional brewers for survival and why these took place. It explains how the hedonism of the Nineties suddenly ended in the new millennium and why the high street operators faced their own crisis, which then merged with that of the retail industry. It also examines how the politicians have frequently misjudged pubs and the beer industry and done it few favours - and how the industry is still paying the price for their decisions. Equally controversially, it discusses why the Beer Tie, the glue that holds the industry together, is threatened if the Government introduces a Statutory Code. Moving to the present, the book considers the effects of the renaissance in brewing, the changes to food-led pubs and debates the impact of Craft beer. It looks at how pubs have changed because of the influence of food. Most crucially it concludes with the plight of the traditional, drinkers pub and looks for positive signs and trends for the future.

Ned Halley tastes their wines for Vintage, Quality and Character. Uniquely he then adjusts for the cost of the wine before awarding his final number rating. This puts more emphasis on the wine to prove itself on the pallet, rather than on its label or reputation. The same drinking qualities can be found in wines that are often several GBPGBPGBP's apart in cost. This book also has a new web site and a private Cellar in which to add or remove wines through the year. We hope also to send alerts to readers, announcing supermarket wine promotions as they break.

The Future Makers: Australian Wines for the 21st Century
The Future Makers is a groundbreaking new work by wine writer Max Allen, set to redefine Australia's wine landscape for the new century. Faced with the unprecedented challenges of climate change, oversupply and global financial turmoil, many winemakers are beginning to think long-term, and in doing so are starting to better understand the unique relationship they have with their vine-growing land. The Future Makers takes you around the country and introduces you to the areas and the people shaping Australia's wine future. Regional chapters feature in-depth profiles of top winemakers - those who are upholding valuable traditions, those who are setting the standard for varietal wine quality and those who are at the cutting edge ofinnovation - plus tasting notes for all of their best wines. Also included are detailed explanations of why a region's wines taste the way they do: a portrait of soils, climate, grape varieties and cultural influences that contribute to the singular qualities of Australia's diverse wine styles. Throughout the book you'll find extended discussions of the controversies and debates moulding Australia's new wine tradition, and an exploration of the major issues and challenges facing Australia's grape growers and winemakers. At the heart of The Future Makers is a celebration of the diversity, complexity and unmistakable flavour of Australia's wines.

From Indie to Rock and Noir to Soul, Country and even the cheesy strains of Karaoke, Cocktails and Rock Tales distils the personality of each music genre into the perfect accompanying cocktails.

World's Best Cider: Taste, Tradition and Terroir, from Somerset to Seattle
World's Best Ciders is the first book to showcase the world of cider, from its origins as a thirst-quencher for farm workers to its present as a rival to champagne. Travelling from the Old to the New World and teaching us not only how to taste it but how to cook with it, Pete Brown and Bill Bradshaw explore every aspect of this fascinating drink and the people who produce it. Here you'll discover what Johnny Appleseed really planted, find out what the Magners' effect is and learn why perry is a miracle drink. Beginning in the sidrerias of Asturias, Spain, where cider has been part of the culture for thousands of years, the authors then travel north to Normandy and Brittany in France, to the famous cider regions of Somerset, the Three Counties and Wales in the UK and then across the Atlantic, to New England and Quebec where cider is being re-invented, taken out of bars and into restaurants. Over 200 ciders are described in detail, with tasting notes, and illustrated with hundreds of Bill Bradshaw's inspiring and beautiful photographs. This is a story that has never been told. It is a story that will appeal to the novice and the expert alike.
