I work part-time as a barista, and I picked up this book to get some ideas for flavor combinations that we could introduce into our cafe. Certainly, this book has tons, featuring unusual flavor combinations- think chocolate/orange/hazelnut- and also holiday ideas (eggnog for Christmas, creme de Menthe for St. Patrick's etc.) as well as the classics. Even more importantly, it gives you the know-how to make your favorite latte combinations at home. As odd as it may seem, one of my favorite things to do at work is to steam milk- I love the look and feel of the foam. Zimmer explains how to do that almost perfectly using a pan, a whisk or handheld mixer and your stovetop. (Sadly, this doesn't work as well for me with soymilk, but with practice I'm sure I'll get it.) She also explained how to do a stovetop espresso with the classic Bialetti espresso maker. Since it retails for about $35, that's a heck of a lot cheaper than a souped up espresso machine and would almost definitely pay... read more

Susan Zimmer takes coffee seriously - make no beans about it! Her humor comes through in this amazing book that not only offers super-duper, impressive recipes for all kinds of coffee drinks (hot, cold, w/liquor, caf & decaf!), but she also shares her vast knowledge on all other aspects of this addictive brew.
I own one of her earlier works, "Cappuccino Cocktails & Espresso Martinis," but in her new book, she really hits her stride. It is small and colorful and packed with everything you need to know about our latest obsession. As "The Queen of the Business Lunch," (I am the author of "The Art of the Business Lunch), I need to be in the know about everything relating to fine dining, entertaining and taking care of guests.

I entertain a LOT at my home. I was so inspired by Susan's book that I decided to host a Sunday Brunch... read more
I do love coffee...

Just not this book. I bought this hoping to find real recipes inside that I could create at home. Everything used some sort of flavored syrup, which other than the basic vanilla or carmel, must be bought online or in a specialty shop. This makes the drinks too expensive and time consuming to make at home. I do however think a lot of creativity was put into creating these drinks, but feel the "recipes" would be better suited to coffee shops and vendors. In the beginning of the book she does explain different methods for making coffee and espresso. Helpful for the novice, but unless you have an unnaturally large variety of flavored syrups on hand, you're better off without this book.
