Beautifully illustrated, this book captures the lifestyle of coffee creators and aficionados, as seen through the lens of acclaimed photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. ￼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 world's 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.
