About The Author
Driven by a passion for coffee and a search for the truth about espresso, Christine Cottrell connects with baristas and coffee experts around the world – strengthening her skills, knowledge and research –
to become the ultimate authority on everything about espresso.
With more than 20 years of experience in teaching and working in the hospitality industry, Christine decided to do something different. In 1999 she 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.
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. In 2009, Coffee Education Network proudly presented the Perfect Espresso publications to Australian coffee enthusiasts. Following their huge success in the hospitality, retail and education markets in Australia, they
have now been released internationally. Christine is also researching and writing more exciting espresso publications you can look forward to in the future.
