Nonetheless, drip coffee has fewer variables to consider, and I felt that once I understood those, I was able to re-read and understand his chapters on espresso. Speaks for itself somehow: Sy Neo rated it it was amazing Sep 07, A great starting point for any barista. As for the different temperature, I agree with you it does not depend on the dose.
I really only began to understand what he wrote about espresso when I got to the drip coffee chapter, near the end. Having done my undergraduate education at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, it’s like a trip down memory lane to see this book by Scott Rao, whose Rao’s Coffee House, tucked away just off North Pleasant Street, is an institution.
Upon selling his second business, Scott began writing books about coffee making in the hopes of helping roasters and baristas become more educated and jandbook in their approach to coffee. The great thing about this book is that Rao lays out the science and application logically and gradually – so that by the time you’ve read the first half of the book you’re hopefully wondering things that he will dutifully explain in the last half.
Aaron rated it really liked it Feb 17, Be the first to ask a question about The Professional Barista’s Professkonal. I remember quite clearly reading it the handboik time and jumping straight on the machine excited by what I had learned.
Though I’m no expert, this book provides extremely detailed instructions–and also explains the ‘why’–of every aspect professionao espresso brewing and the techniques–grinding, dosing, tamping, leveling, et al. Batistas save you a lot of money and give you the same information. Katie rated it it was amazing Jun 18, I found Rao’s book informative, but I wish that he had begun with drip coffee.
I certainly understand the rationale of putting espresso first – I am sure most serious baristas consider themselves purveyors of espresso.
But I also think you will be very positively surprised by either Schomers book or Scotts! I hope I will get a copy from Scott Rao so I can review the book as well.

ROB, to further add to my comments on your blog: No book can answer every question, but a good one should get you excited about the topic and inspire you to go out and learn more and generate more questions. I am not a professional barista, though I have worked in coffee shops. After selling his first cafe, Scott went on to work in the New Zealand coffee industry.
