Ceci n’est pas un cappuccino


This book takes us on a journey through the world of the coffee with foamed milk. Common misunderstandings are clarified, popular myths are debunked and challenging questions are raised. Indulging in the pleasure of a cappuccino, we don’t sufficiently appreciate what a complex brew it truly is, but help is at hand with this enjoyable A–Z. The light hearted, yet thought provoking, essay of pictures and words touches on the history, geography, economy and even politics that have contributed to our favourite brew.

The book is available in two editions.
