Many incorrect pieces of information

The person who wrote this book obviously has little experience with coffee. In the first 5 mins of the book there are ready completely inaccurate claims about coffee, and it only continues to add more inaccuracies as the book goes along.

I bought it because someone mentioned in their review that it would be good for beginners. While I agree that it is written in a style that would be easily understood by beginners, it would be detrimental for an aspiring coffee maker to use this as a foundation for their coffee journey.

To quote the principal from Billy Madison: everyone in the room is now dumber for having listened to it”.

The narrator isn’t bad though - easy enough to understand.

P.S: please don’t go buying hot coffee beans in a bag.

Before you begin with espresso, listen

Before you begin involving yourself with espresso listen to this to know what is important.

This is perhaps not appropriate for someone already very familiar with espresso but best for someone beginning.
