    Where to get the low-down on coffee types

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I was wondering if you all would suggest any websites, books, conferences, etc. that will teach a person about the different types of coffees available and how they are best brewed/used. Thank you!

    Re: Where to get the low-down on coffee types

    I may be going out on a limb here, but I would have to say that there is no substitute for actual experience!

    Get along to your local roaster and ask for a run-down, or enrol in an accredited coffee course.

    Also, if you have your own espresso machine and grinder at home (or one to play with at work, if you are lucky!) go out and buy fresh beans, both single origin and blends, then experiment by running them through your machine.

    If, after that, you have further technical questions about certain varieties, or the use of the espresso machine, then check here again for answers!

    Hope this has helped!

    Hi,

    I have linked to a bunch of resources on my blog. Sweetmarias.com is a definite must read.

    Cheers,
