The Coffee Culture Evolution
I will be the first to admit that the standard cup of Joe is 100% necessary to my morning ritual. Even so, authors of The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee: Growing, Roasting and Drinking, with Recipes, James Freeman, Caitlin Freeman and Tara Duggan, encourage coffee lovers, much like me, to keep our palates alive with varied coffee. The guide includes a breakdown of bean types and growing regions, and home roasting tips. The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee also offers over 30 recipes from pastry chef, Caitlin Freeman, which incorporate or simply pair beautifully with coffee. Sweets include Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles and Stout Coffee Cake. The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee: Growing, Roasting, Drinking, with Recipes, by James Freeman, Caitlin Freeman and Tara Duggan, is available in stores and online for $25, full mark-up.
