COFFEE! For millions (like me) it’s as necessary as the air we breathe. Many of us (like me) are happily addicted to our caffeinated coffee. We are wired, buzzed, adrenalized due to the turb0-charged brown bean. And Starbucks = Coffee.
Meet Kenny! I met the affable (like me) author Kenneth Brown and his lovely wife Ashley at the Book Expo of America. Kenneth is a coffee connoisseur and former Starbucks manager who has written an entertaining and informative book Inside the Cup: Translating Starbucks into a Drinkable Language.
In Inside the Cup, you can learn to speak Starbucks – like me, you know you want to increase your cool factor:
“Wet doppio macchiato. Espresso con panna venti. 5 Pump caramel frappuccino mocha extra whip. Triple, breve espresso macchiato.” Mamma Mocha Mia!
You can discover which of the 10 Starbucks Customers you are: Are you the Buddy-Buddy, the Mom, the Runner, a Regular? The Starbucks Maven?
There’s a terrific chapter / list of Kids’ Drinks – and ALL are decaffeinated. Organic chocolate milk. Cinnamon dolce syrup. Blended strawberry lemonade. Yum.
There are lots of FUN facts, quotes, and even a chapter on – OMG – tea.
The “Caffeine content of popular Starbucks beverages” table – priceless!
Inside the Cup. Available as an eBook and paperback on Amazon.
I’m curious… how important is coffee to your day? Are you hooked?
