INTRODUCTION OF THE BOOK BY PIERRE HERMÉ - WORLDWIDE KNOWN PASTRY CHEF AND BEST PASTRY CHEF 2016.
"Some encounters are more moving than others. That was the case with Hippolyte Courty. Crossing his way has profoundly shaken up my beliefs regarding to “the little black”. I believe that, in a general way, all those who encounter this young man will not get out unscathed. He only needs to offer you a cup of coffee… Such as this friend who introduced him to this drink he used not to drink. It is hard to imagine that Hippolyte, who used to not drink a drop of coffee until 2008, finding it not fine or delicate, is now opening the royal way to this bean. From the former professor specialist of history to the aesthete of coffee, there was finally only a cup. Now, he is a reference in the subject, always on a mission to find authenticity, quality and exclusivity. A gold finder who finds and initiates. He opened me the path to a new universe, his. It has been a gustative shock. A revelation. Before this day, I finally hadn’t ever drunk coffee… Through this book, readers will discover an initiation journey to coffee, before jumping into practical work!"
