Coffee is the soma of the nineties, and Higher Grounds is your guidebook to the zeitgeist, whether it’s truck-stop “Swedish gasoline” or a “half-double decaffeinated half-caf with a twist of lemon.” Includes quotations, recipes, definitions, and a lexicon of essential coffeeisms.

I love coffee. Every morning I enjoy at least 2 cups with my hubby before he must take off to work. I love the smell. When I was little I can remember my mom taking me to the grocery store and I would love to stop at the coffee grinder section and just sit and smell the coffee beans. Now that I am older, I still do it. It amazes me how many different kinds of coffee there is out there. Also, there are so many ways to make it. Capuccino, espresso, fraps, decaf, regular, and the list goes on! This book will give you the definitions of the terms, little recipes to make with coffee, and quotes from various people. Very cute and humorous quotes are also throughout the book. Perfect little book for the coffee lover for the upcoming seasons!


A Good Book and Read!

    As a nonfat cafe misto addict, this looks like a great book. Always did want to own a book store with a coffee bar in it, more for me than to try and make money. Will add to my TBR list
