      Ugh. This was maybe the most pretentious book I have ever read. "Here, let me talk about all my knowledge on coffee in a snobby manner." This was also one of the most boring books. I thought it was going to be about different types of coffee culture, but it was just some guy rambling on. However, there were some parts that I enjoyed, hence the 2 stars versus 1.

      I had intended to write this piece last week while sitting in my favorite Austin coffee shop, Epoch, but they were having network issues and so it just didn't happen as planned. But it would have been awesome to have a piping hot raspberry mocha to sip while writing a review all about coffee.This book falls into the non-fiction that I love to read. I love reading the history of things, how they came to be a part of life today, where the small things related to them originally sprung up, some thi [...]

      If you wanted to know EVERYTHING about coffee (and I mean EVERYTHING), this book is for you. It covered coffee and its nutritional properties, benefits, caffeine. It covered the history of coffee. It covered how to prepare coffee. It had anecdotes and asides. It taught you the detail of how coffee changes from the bush to your kitchen. It even covered barista competitions, the (very detailed) history of Starbucks, and Satin's favorite barista.The book also went into what was (for me) excruciatin [...]

      Like a bad cup of coffee from the local 'QuickieMart' Coffee Talk: The Stimulating Story of the World's Most Popular Brew by Morton Satin is neither warm, filling nor, as the title misleadingly suggests, “stimulating.” In fact, the book is both repetitive and rather dull. While Satin clearly loves his‘cup of joe’there is little in his book that is new and he tries in vain to cover this up by repeating several of the few amusing bits in the book several times in successive chapters. Satin [...]

      I enjoyed the chapters about the history of coffee, and the one about the work of baristas in Italian coffee shops. But some parts are repetitive. How many times do you really need to be told that coffee is a great beverage to make you alert?Also I think the author gave misinformation about the origins of the word "tip" (as leaving a tip or a gratuity), but I'm not 100% sure I did a Goggle search and some sources stated that "Tip” (and “tips") is often said (incorrectly) to be an acronym of [...]

      Read this as a source for my speech topic ("The Art of Being a Coffee Snob," haha), and I'm not sure why all the bad reviews. But then, this was the first book on coffee I've ever read so I really have nothing to compare it to. I found it very interesting since I really didn't know hardly anything about the history of coffee.

    7. Michael Crimmins on said:

      Good in depth look at the story of coffee. I've read more than a few coffee books and I didn't think there was anything that I didn't think that there was anything left to learn. This book proved me wrong. The order of the chapters and some of the personal stories seemed a little odd to me, but overall well worth reading if you like that morning cup of coffee.

    8. Lucy on said:

      Covers the origins and history of coffee. There was definitely some interesting stuff here.

    9. Eric on said:

      Like McDonald's coffee. Okay. Not great, but not terrible, either. Acceptable research, warm if not incredible prose.

      Very interesting. I learned a lot about my every-day morning drink. Will enjoy coffee even more.
