Subject: Books on espresso
 

On 2 occasions in my long life, I have tasted outstanding espresso-once in Barry's basement and a couple of weeks ago at the Intelligentsia espresso blending project.  Are there any books discussing espresso and the variety of tasting experiences one can have.  Had to revert to my old wine tasting days for descriptors.  Want to know what to look for-think espresso is far more complex than the vast majority of wines out there.  

thanks and thanks for creating this forum.

There's the Italian/English "vaporbook" Espresso Tasting, out of stock, with one copy circulating among alties. Espressoparts NW is getting a new supply in.

I had a chance to scan Gonzo's copy at the espresso-in, and it's just what the doctor ordered, a manual for cupping espresso.

Haven't read it myself, but I think the book "Espresso Coffee : The Chemistry of Quality" by Andrea Illy could be interesting for you.
