Overview


If you've ever crushed out on your local barista, Coffeeshop Crushes: Tales of Love and Lust in Coffee Establishments is your new best friend! Editors Nicole J. Georges (Invincible Summer) and Jon Van Oast take you into the sexy, confusing, hilarious realm of server/customer romance (both requited and, sadly, otherwise.) With contributions from folks like Too Much Coffee Man's Shannon Wheeler, Brainfag comix dude Nate Beaty, and Constant Rider's Kate Lopresti, Coffeeshop Crushes is one big ball of sexual frustration and nerve-shattering caffeine! As raunchy and graphic as it is sweet and coy, this zine contains 32 pages of sex, lies, and über-embarrassing shoot-downs that will keep you laughing and cringing until you're too caffeine-buzzed to think!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Who among us has not fallen deeply in love, if only for a fleeting two minutes, with the cutie making our drink at the local coffeeshop? Certainly, it’s happened to us all. Coffeeshop Crushes is devoted to these fleeting fancies and is one of the most charming zines I’ve read in recent memory." —Indie Street

“There are a lot of neurotic people in the world. Most of them can only get work at coffee shops. The rest drink copious amounts of coffee. The coffee servers and the coffee drinkers try to mate, but it rarely works out." —Maximum Rocknroll

"What’s best about this is the topic invites a lighthearted vulnerability you don’t often see from such a diverse group in concert very often." —Syndicated Zine Reviews

"Split between amusing anecdotes about secret crushes and illustrated comics that chart jittery attempts to gain the attention of beloved baristas. While a good many of the crushes remain simply that, a few gain purchase as lusty encounters of promise that end with embarrassing failures or broken hearts. As one such account concludes: "After a week and a half of coffee themed hot sex, I decided to declare my love. I was more surprised than he. He said, 'You know you're cute and all, but.... You're just too weird for me.'"" —Utne Reader
