 The first thing I thought when Andy Newbom told me about the book he co-wrote with Andrew Russo was, why didn’t anyone think of this sooner? A Field Guide to Coffee Spanish, is perhaps the most important book for coffee buyers on the market right now.

Traveling to origin to purchase coffees can be difficult, where dialectical eccentricities abound. But the new book from BGA co-founder Andy Newbom and Andrew Russo of Russo Roasts Coffee consultancy looks to make the process a little easier.

“Describing quality and the processes and controls that create it, requires language.  While English may be the language of commerce, Spanish is the language of coffee.  This book is a tremendous resource that could prove to be the secret ingredient in sourcing a delicious coffee or avoiding a major trading pitfall.”

Phil Beattie, Green Coffee Buyer, Dillanos Coffee

"An approachable exploration of the Latin American coffee scene that transcends the challenges of language barriers. More than a straightforward dictionary of translations, this field guide incorporates cultural context in a range of coffee producing countries. A useful quick reference tool for the experienced coffee buyer and an invaluable introductory resource for those new to sourcing."

Ted Stachura, Green Coffee Buyer, Equator Coffee

“The way in which this book collates information about major producing countries, both in terms of objective and experiential information is extremely helpful. In addition, the Spanish phrases and explanation about grading, weights, and measures makes this a must have resource for anyone buying or roasting coffee from Latin America. Seriously kick ass guys!”
