$20

This entertaining and informative book from the cofounders of Sprudge, the world’s most popular coffee website, shows readers the many ways they can enjoy coffee at home, from detailed instructions on countertop brewing methods like Chemex, AeroPress, and French press to recipes that use coffee as an ingredient in cocktails, milkshakes, floats, and even a spice rub. Whether you use an automatic coffee maker or a fancy La Marzocco espresso machine, this book will build your coffee-crafting knowledge, with recipes such as Caffe con Panna (a shot of espresso topped with whipped cream), Affogato (espresso poured over ice cream), a coffee-chocolate syrup, and the classic Espresso Martini. The book also includes tips and guidance on the gear you need to create the home coffee experience that’s right for you; expert instructions for more than two-dozen brewing methods for coffee and espresso, as well as sections on how to build a mug collection and how to find the best coffee beans on the market.
