Synopsis

For some, coffee is a means of getting through the morning. For others, it is a way of life. Fascinated by artisanal coffee culture, celebrated photographer Horst A. Friedrichs turns his lens toward every aspect of coffee - from beans to espresso machines, and from baristas to consumers. Stepping inside the worlds best coffee shops, Friedrichs shows just how sophisticated the practice of making coffee has become. Delicious shots of classic drip cones and decades-old Chemex coffee makers are interspersed with images of beakers filled with dark liquid simmering over a flame and brewers extracting the perfect concentrate to be poured over ice. He also captures coffee's fashion aesthetic - from witty and vintage t-shirts to upscale extracts and felt filters. Nora Manthey's texts profile the leading minds of the third wave and reveal their transformative craft. As luscious as a freshly poured cup of espresso, this is a delightfully irresistible book that will be at home on any coffee table.
