I received this book from Amazon’s Vine Voice Reviewing Program for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


When I say this book “saved my life”, I’m not exaggerating. Okay, yes I am. But the point is, this coffee book is so much more than just generic recipes that you can screw up in the privacy of your own home (that’s how EVERY coffee recipe has gone for me lately…hence why Starbucks is still making money from me).

The Coffee Recipe Book TEACHES you how to make a dang good cup of coffee. I learned SO much in reading all of the information included in the first half of the book. The author uses his experience as a barista, and FABULOUS sense of humor, to tell you how to use coffee tools, WHY you use them that way, and he shares his own personal tips and preferences. There are also various coffee facts sprinkled throughout the book too.

I’ve tried a couple of recipes and they turned out JUST LIKE I WOULD HAVE ORDERED THEM. My sister and I made a Red Eye and a Maple Latte (my personal favorite) and we were very happy with how they turned out. I can’t wait to try more! AND THE COFFEE COCKTAILS AND COFFEE MARTINIS?!?! Hello. Gonna be trying those very, very soon *winks*.

The author is honest with you up front with how long the recipes take so you can prepare for that ahead of time and he tells you to freestyle with your own tastes and preferences as you learn how to make more and more coffee.

So, in conclusion, I give The Coffee Recipe Book a very solid 5 out of 5 stars and a high five because my bank account is going to be grateful that I’m not buying as much as coffee. I definitely recommend it!
