Sam Gugino offers a well-written piece in Wine Spectator that tidily compares and contrasts coffee and wine production…

“Despite going through a production process that’s at least as complicated as that of wine, coffee, specialty coffee in particular, has an X factor that wine doesn’t have-you. While wine is fully finished and ready to enjoy once purchased, coffee requires the customer to be, in effect, part winemaker. That means buying freshly roasted beans, grinding them properly and only as needed, using filtered water at the right temperature, employing good equipment, and drinking the coffee promptly.”

Highly recommended.
