In The @wastingcoffee Guide To Not Wasting Coffee, I have collected, curated and expanded upon the conversations taking place on my coffee sustainability platform @wastingcoffee.

It's more than just tips on re-using batch brew - although you'll find some great ones! The book introduces a holistic operational approach to reducing waste and lowering costs, while increasing quality, customer experience, and team morale.

We begin by exploring the green coffees that roasteries choose to purchase and from there move into roasting, brewing, the math behind extraction yield, barista training, latte art throwdowns, and more. I got to speak with a wide array of amazing coffee professionals, including many that I lowkey idolize, and their thoughts and perspectives are shared throughout the book.

Not Wasting Coffee is both a practical reference and an interesting cover-to-cover read. It is *packed* with actionable information and the first half of the book doubles as a comprehensive reference on extraction for baristas of all experience levels. I'm super excited for everyone to read it!

Kat Melheim of Coffee People Zine created the layout for this book, and the beautiful cover illustration is by Chris Hulsizer.

NOTE: When I made this book I learned that PRINTING IS EXPENSIVE. So I'm offering the book in digital format for those who are not able to afford the lowest sliding scale for print - and also for folks who just prefer to read things on their phone or tablet, want to save the paper and shipping, or whatever other reason!

I really want the info to be accessible for as many people as possible. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to message me!
