Van Boon tot Barista

The Deprez Brothers Bart and Peter (Viva Sara) wrote the first serious book about the new coffee culture in Belgium.
The book is called (Van Boon tot Barista) and published by the Davidsfonds, Leuven.

It's about a lot of things ; from the history over processing, harvesting, blending, roasting, brewing techniques and recipes and health to finish with Barista knowledge.
Very complete with 14 pages about all different coffee country's as my personal highlight.
Except for the old fashioned idea about coffee dosing (7 grams for one and 14 for two espresso's !!??) I can find myself really well with the content and hope they can get a second, more specialised, book printed one day, and maybe with a 3rd wave espresso bar list....
