Author: Michael Sivetz Chemical engineer, inventor, and World Coffee Expert
Coffee Technology is the top coffee industry manual (also widely known as the coffee “Bible”).
This book contains much of Micheal Sivetz’s scientific research and technical details around coffee processing technologies, plus a History of Coffee and a chapter about “Coffee and its Influences on Consumers”. It was written after he completed the first chemical breakdown of the coffee bean into its 800+ different flavour components, and while working on numerous technical coffee projects for some of the world’s largest and oldest coffee companies.
This 700-page book is organized into five parts:
History of Coffee
Green Coffee Technology
Roast Coffee Technology
Instant Coffee Technology
Coffee and its Influences on Consumers
Coffee Technology was researched and written by Michael Sivetz. It was first published and printed in 1963. It was later edited by Norman W Desrosier, Ph. D. and published in 1979 by Avi Publishing Company Inc. in Westport Connecticut.
