The Authors

The brothers Franco and Mauro Bazzara are founding members of the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe and of the Trieste Coffee Cluster, promoters of the coffee-related initiative TriestEspresso Expo, the only trade show in the world that focuses on espresso. They are also board members of some important long-standing associations in the sector such as the Associazione Caffè Trieste and Gruppo Triveneto Torrefattori.



(…) I must say that what I was told about these books was not exact: they are not just "quite good", they are incredible! Extremely clear and very detailed, they allow the reader to enter the fascinating world of coffee.
Like every coffee roaster I have an entire library of coffee books, but I must say that "The coffee tasting" and "The espresso coffee production system" are comprehensive.
Therefore, after having read both repeatedly, I decided to send my employees to a course with the Bazzara brothers. As I expected, they came back even more in love with our Italian coffee".
