Portland writer Hanna Neuschwander has written a great book for Timber Press of Portland, profiling 55 roasters from Seattle to San Francisco: who they are, where they are, and what they are about. It will also educate you on the lingo, the geography of the coffee world, the process from bean to mouth, roasting your own, and how to drink the best possible cup at home.

I have a brief review, and an interview with the author, over at PaulGerald.com.

A Guide to the Best Coffee and Roasters from San Francisco to Seattle.
Book
It is not a guide to coffee shops. I have been haunted by that suggestion ever since I published Breakfast in Bridgetown. Even for an addict like me, that would be way too much work. Instead, this book is an informative and entertaining guide to 55 companies that roast coffee: who they are, where they are, and what they are about. It will also educate you on the lingo, the geography of the coffee world, the process from bean to mouth, roasting your own, and how to drink the best possible cup at home. And yes, there’s a page or two of favorite bars, as well as sketches on women in coffee, sustainable coffee, and other gems.
