Review From User :

Our family budget has severely dwindled since paying for two kids in daycare. My husband and I used to go out for coffee every Saturday morning and out to eat every Sunday morning, and now those are no longer options for us (love that we don't have to rush out of the house on weekend mornings anymore though!). Couple that with sleep deprivation and I've become a little obsessed with my morning coffee. I allow myself one cup a day, so it better darn well be good.

I checked this one out from the library before we were gifted a Nespresso machine last year and I loved it but I didn't have time to try any of the recipes. The first half comprises history, different types of coffee via geographic location, different brewing methodologies, etc. The second half is full of recipes, which I love and include flavor combinations I wouldn't have thought of on my own. I am (hopefully) temporarily dairy-free and there are even a few recipes for me in the book. Now we can use our drip coffee maker and espresso machine to make fancy drinks on the weekends for a fraction of the price of our previous weekend luxuries.

And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that the book is visually stunning... right on par with most DK books which are loved by all members of our family. Now to see if they have published/will publish a similar book on tea (update: The Tea Book)!
