Prepare to take your love of coffee to the next level with this richly aromatic tour of the world’s favourite drink, from bean to cup and beyond

Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes: espresso, cortado, flat white, latte, cappuccino…

We wake up and smell it. We crave it when we’re sleepy. We take deep lungfuls of its rich aroma when we buy a new bag of it. We put it in cakes, cocktails and just about every other type of food imaginable. But most of all, we rely on it to punctuate our day with a caffeine hit and a small burst of all its delicious flavours.

In this homage to the coffee bean you will:
– Learn how coffee was discovered, how it is grown and how it is turned into our favourite drink
– Discover everything you wanted to know about different beans, roasting styles and brewing techniques
– Take a barista training course from the comfort of your own kitchen, with top tips on making the perfect brew at home
– Get to grips with modern developments in the coffee world, such as nitro, cold brew, proffee and snapchilled coffee
– Try out delicious coffee-based recipes, from flavoured lattes and iced coffees to coffee fudge, tiramisu, homemade syrups and espresso martinis

The only thing this book doesn’t contain is caffeine – you’ll have to make a fresh cup of joe for that.

We buy food we can point to. We stalk the streets until rush hour and wait for the little hatches to open in the sides of restaurants. From the steamy openings, cooks in overalls sell jiaozi (dumplings) and bowls of thick, sticky, white congee – an unholy cross between soup and porridge. Baozi, steamed white buns, are light as air. I buy them filled with water spinach and nettle – delicious dipped in sharp, black Chinese vinegar.

In 2008, Miranda and her partner set off for one last big adventure before settling down. They chose to travel through South-East Asia. All did not go to plan: Asian flu, falling off boats and the general chaos of a life abroad challenged them at every step, and yet, in the midst of it all, they fell in love with the culture and culinary delights of China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia.
