From demystifying the science of extraction and manual brewing techniques on 10 different devices to choosing equipment and beans, this accessible guide focuses on the issues—cost, time, taste, and accessibility—that home coffee brewers negotiate. No matter where you are in your coffee journey, you can make a great cup at home.
