Based on the author's true life experiences, How Coffee Saved My Life is a funny, tragic, provocative and touching story of a rich, white, North American overachiever who spends a year in Uruguay in hopes of becoming a more responsible and sensitive member of the global community. Throughout the book, vignettes tied to the Spanish language flow from observation to theological analysis.

I don't usually like this type of book, but the writing flowed and the quotes used to supplement her reactions were thought-provoking. Ellie used a combination of journal entries and hindsight to write her story of her year in Uruguay.
