About the Author

Driven by a passion for coffee and a search for the truth about espresso, Christine connects with baristas and coffee experts around the world – strengthening her skills, knowledge and research – to become the ultimate authority on everything about espresso.


In 1999, with more than 20 years of experience in teaching and working in the hospitality industry, Christine established Coffee Education Network and since then has helped thousands to improve their espresso techniques and to more fully appreciate the espresso concept. As well as teaching classes, she presents at conferences, social functions and events and has written the Perfect Espresso series of books and training resources.

In 2009 the first 10 publications were presented to Australian coffee enthusiasts. Following their success in the hospitality, retail and education markets in Australia, they will be released internationally at Caffe Culture 2010 in London. In the future, you can look forward to more Perfect Espresso publications Christine is currently working on.

Christine’s extensive research about espresso was the start of a journey she now shares with her husband Paul. Together they continue on a crusade that leads them all over Australia – from coffee plantations in north Queensland and northern New South Wales to Melbourne and Sydney for discussions with roasters and blenders. The pursuit of excellence in espresso also takes Christine and Paul to Europe, collecting conversations with espresso experts and stories from long established cafes; to South America and Asia, visiting coffee plantations; and the Middle East, the historical home of coffee.  

Christine releases the second edition of the popular Barista Bible April 2013:



This exciting second edition of the globally recognised Barista Bible is the culmination of research that began four years ago – as soon as the first edition appeared on the market. We do understand that things change very quickly in the coffee world! 


Having worked alongside some of the best baristas and coffee experts, attended numerous trade shows and events, read an enormous number of trade publications, listened to lots of lectures and tuned into countless forums, we have gathered a wealth of new information. 


The process of refining and revamping the old Barista Bible was quite different from writing it the first time around.  It was a most rewarding process to discard the old and outdated and replace it with new. We were amazed at the support of so many generous coffee people from around the world who showed us around and shared their ideas, giving the Barista Bible its new international focus. Whenever I wanted a photo or an example, all I had to do was ask and whatever we needed was sent.  Also, we sourced globally recognised espresso experts to proof some sections for content accuracy – because we wanted the information to be ‘spot on’! 


With months of editing, checking and proofing now complete, the second edition Barista Bible is now ‘hot off the press’, ready to send out to the world.


In its original easy-to-read style, the second edition also includes:


  • a more global focus with trends and developments from around the world 
  • explanations of the latest extraction measurement tools and techniques
  • double the information and illustrations on roasting, blending and cupping
  • considerably more on green beans and their evaluation
  • lots more photos, illustrations, tables and flow diagrams.
