Want to say hi?
Have a question about the book, or about coffee?


Author, Left Coast Roast

At Coava Coffee in Portland, Oregon

Hanna Neuschwander is a writer and editor. She writes a lot about coffee and a bit about food for publications including Portland Monthly, the Edible magazines, Travel + Leisure, Roast Magazine, and the Oregonian. She is also the author of The Craft of Espresso. She has given talks on topics the sustainability and history of coffee in places as far-flung as Boston and Panama. She learned about coffee working the closing shift at Extracto Coffeehouse in Portland; she continues learning every chance she gets.

By day, she is also the managing editor of Democracy & Education, a scholarly journal about two things she thinks are pretty important. It is published by the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling, where she is director of communications.
