Notes: A very handy and well laid out little journal/notebook with a number of very useful templates both the usual demographics, but also a glossary on grinding size , entries for origin, brew method, roast and brew dates along with types of beverage a customized flavor wheel to make sure you get the facts down right. A thoughtful field note/reference guide ( for yourself or whoever you care to share it with) that always you to record your impressions with a minimum of interference while getting that subtle poison that keeps you from nodding off during the day. Simple, easy to read and use, very handy for anyone trying to figure it out ( again) in a precaffinated state . Part of a series ( that I wholly recommend) that includes : 33 Bottles of Beer, 33 Pieces of Cheese, 33 Cigars Tasting Notebook, 33 Drams of Whiskey, 33 Bottles of Wine, that should allow the diligent if self indulgent to map, graph, record, and document their explorations of these various substances in a precise and consistent way for themselves and for posterity – or at least their next of kin
Final Thoughts: A well made and useful journal/research notebook for less than the cost of a coffee worth drinking when not at home . Helps map out your preferred coffees and places to compare with others. Buy the book direct form the publishes and save some many – the amazon store want too much.
A well laid out and easy to navigate website that allows you to buy any or all the books (at a discount) along with links to his other pursuits. Well worth visiting for a few minutes or an afternoon.
