A beautiful world guide to the brown bean.
Taking the reader on a global tour of coffee-growing countries, The World Atlas of Coffee presents the bean in full-color photographs and concise, informative text. It shows the origins of coffee -- where it is grown, the people who grow it; and the cultures in which coffee is a way of life -- and the world of consumption -- processing, grades, the consumer and the modern culture of coffee.
Plants of the genus Coffea are cultivated in more than 70 countries but primarily in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa. For some countries, including Central African Republic, Colombia, Ethiopia, and Honduras, coffee is the number one export and critical to the economy.
Organized by continent and then further by country or region, The World Atlas of Coffee presents the brew in color spreads packed with information. They include:
AN ENTIRELY NEW WAY TO MAKE COFFEE.Water and grounds are mixed together for ten seconds.Gentle air pressure pushes the mixed water and grounds through a microfilter in 20 seconds.
A total brewing time of around 30 seconds produces an exceptionally smooth and rich flavor.

Ask any chef about their most treasured kitchen tools and they don't even blink before they answer. The answer is always the same - knives. Most chefs have their own knife set and it might be wise not to get caught touching it. Chefs don't share knives even if they're usually reasonably nice people. Knives are strictly personal. Well, all right then, you'll have to get your own. This is where our Bistro Ceramic Knife line comes in. Ceramic Knives are a dream come true. Tomatoes part miraculously, boneless meat falls apart, and cutting up fruit and vegetables become a joy instead of a chore. In this regard you might say, good knives are key to a healthier lifestyle.
