Scott Rao has almost two decades of experience as a barista, coffee roaster, and consultant. During his career he has roasted and sampled more than twenty thousand batches of coffee and made several hundred thousand coffee beverages. Scott’s consulting services include: comprehensive cafe startup planning, barista training, training in both manual roasting and automated profile roasting.

Scott says, “When I began in the coffee business in 1992, I read every book I could find about coffee. However, after reading all of those books I felt as if I hadn’t learned much about how to make great coffee. My coffee library was chock-full of colorful descriptions of brewing styles, growing regions, and recipes, with a few almost-unreadable scientific books mixed in. I would have traded in all of those books for one serious, practical book with relevant information about making great coffee in a cafe. Fourteen years later, I still hadn’t found that book, so I decided to write it myself. These books are my attempt to give baristas what I had been missing all of those years.” Scott Rao.
