I Need Coffee

19 Jun

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 – OMGtea.

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?

    YES I’m addicted to coffee but I’m afraid to go into Starbucks because I don’t know the lingo and I never know what to order. I just stare at the menu like a deer in the headlights and then run out the door. I guess I need to read that book!

    RU Kidding? Why don’t you get to know the folks at your local coffee roaster/coffee haus. Support small business- and not-quite-as-important… support your tastebuds. Starbucks over roasts their beans and leaves a burnt flavor on the tongue.
