The Coffee Roaster's Companion is a great resource for the home roaster and gives a basic view into the professional world of coffee roasting. It provides roasting techniques and good explanations of what happens to coffee as heat is applied to it and roasting techniques. It also dives a little into cupping, brewing and how to choose a roaster. The photos are great and so are the examples of curves and charts. It's only 90 pages long so don't expect a coffee roasting encyclopedia. This is a basic consolidation of roasting info. It may be a bit elementary for professional roasters so expect to breeze through this book if you have been roasting on large machines for a while. We think this book might leave pro roasters hungry for more but we still think it's an excellent book and are glad that Scott Rao took the time to create it.
