With more than three hundred recipes for exotic and easy-to-prepare coffees, The Coffee Book can turn any home into a gourmet coffeehouse. This is the ultimate recipe book for coffee lovers. An international melange of styles and flavors allows readers to make their own espressos, iced coffees, liqueurs, cocktails, instant coffees, coffee substitutes, and worldwide specialty coffee drinks.

Inside is everything anyone would ever need to know about coffee, from where it is grown to how to drink it. The Coffee Book is also a compendium of information on the history of the drink and its metamorphosis into one of the world's most popular beverages. No other coffee book contains the variety of recipes and information offered on these pages.

From the sidewalk cafes of France, café au lait may be the choice for a morning perk. For the less traditional, there is the unusual combination of flavors in Café Picante Brasileiro. The adventurous can find rare brews from exotic places such as Thailand, where a blend of Mekong alcohol and coffee is called Gha Faa Siam. For simple tastes or daring spirits, a recipe to suit the passion of every coffee connoisseur is waiting.
