To be qualified to write a book about coffee, one might think you need to run a coffee shop or drink six pots a day of the world’s most popular brew. But Dawn Campbell’s experience comes not from how much but from how many different varieties of coffee she has sampled.
The Coffee Book began with a trip Campbell took with coauthor Janet Smith across their home country of Canada. Just after their graduation from high school in the early 1970s, the two friends traveled from Alberta to Quebec, settling in Ottawa to work for the winter and save up for a trip abroad. In their travels, they sampled coffee in Europe, the Middle East, and eastern Asia. This was the beginning of their international coffee experience, and it was then, twenty years ago, that they first entertained the idea of writing a coffee book.
Since then, Campbell has settled in British Columbia, working as a social services coordinator. She enjoys writing about her home province of Victoria and has written two books of Canadian interest in addition to The Tea Book, also published by Pelican.
