Booklist Review

The beverages of choice today are symbolized by the existence of "coffee-tearias" on virtually every city block. In fact, the $2 cup of coffee may become as ubiquitous as the bagel and the biscotti. Drawing on British manufacturing experience, Hilton and cowriter Evans briefly chronicle everything coffee and tea lovers need to know. Their expertise touches on ancient history as well as contemporary usage, from the discovery of tea by Chinese emperor Shen Nung in 2737 B.C. to the twentieth-century invention of instant tea. Included, too, are more practical matters, such as a "nouvelle" glossary ("espresso ristretto" boasts less water than regular expresso, and BOP means "broken orange pekoe"); the right techniques to make perfect cuppas; and further reading. --Barbara Jacobs
