( Free Book ) ☫ Left Coast Roast ☪ West Coast Roasters Have Largely Defined And Refined How Americans Drink And Think About Their Morning Cup Of Joe They Have Turned A Morning Ritual Into An Obsession Left Coast Roast Is A Caffeine Fueled Guide To Key Companies In Washington, Oregon, And Northern California From Small Artisan Roasters Like Heart, Coava, And Kuma And History Making Icons Like Peet S And Starbucks, To Rapidly Expanding Shops Like Portland S Stumptown And San Francisco S Blue Bottle Profiles Describe Each Company S Background, Roasting History, And Style, And Explain How To Visit And Order Beans For Home Brewing My main complaint about this book is that they wanted to be cute and printed it in brown and green print on cream colored paper which made it difficult and annoying to read. What a great little book Tons of coffee facts and tidbits are provided while profiling some of the best roasters and cafes on the west coast A couple of shops in Bend are even included Bravo. West coast readers may discover a few new roasters to enjoy I know I did. Too bad the author hasn t visited the rest of the left coast, i.e south of Santa Cruz. I mainly like it for the short coffee primer at the beginning
