Author has a genuinely deep knowledge of the coffee industry, and of what its features mean to the everyday coffee drinkers like me, who are in constant find of improving our taste and with it our coffee drinking experience
This was a fast and simple read. Lots of amazing information about all things coffee. I learned quite a bit from reading it. It gave just enough information so that it kept my attention and I didn't obtain bored. I really enjoyed the section where it went into info about each country that produces coffee and where they rank in the coffee world. A amazing read for any coffee person. I did keep an ebook ver for my honest review. Opinions are my own.
This book is very informative if you're interested in learning about the various types of coffee blends and grinds. It helped me understand how decaffeinated coffee is created and that the most common way of making it doesn't use risky chemicals, as is always stated. It was also interesting to learn instant coffee is made. Thanks to Mr. Stern for taking the time to write this book.
I love this book! It is very straightforward and interesting. I love coffee and it was an informative read for me. If you like coffee as much as I do (and I luuuuurve it) you should obtain this book!
Love this book! As a coffee lover, I read all I can on this subject. This book did not disappoint! A treasure trove of necessary info and so much more. A fun, interesting, definitely non-boring read. Highly recommended, if like me, you're cuckoo for coffee.
Saw Dr Bob Arnot on TV and had to read this- as his latest book was a life changer for me and my family. This book and the associated coffees are a real revelation for lifestyle and mood. All aspects of Dr Bob's thorough scientific investigation into and development of these HIGH POLYPHENOL coffees just plain hit home. I've found mood and energy levels consistent with the clinical results as described in his book, yet never experienced with any other coffees. Everyone- coffee drinker or not - owes themselves an understanding of this book and the associated benefits of Dr Bob's discoveries engineered into these all natural coffees. Thank you Dr Bob!!!Daktari Kenya Gathugu 12oz Whole Bean - Coffee Lover's DietDrDanger Coffee Surgical Strike Scientifically Selected, Blended & Roasted, Whole Bean, 12 oz
Being a coffee lover (20 cups a day) this book is filled with valuable info if you are a coffee lover. It has information regarding grinding coffee for better taste and making it. Also has a lot of information about different coffee in the globe and has perfect recipies for dieting.
Amazing book learned a ton about coffee and quality products, have ordered and tried Ethiopian and Tanzanian coffees, also got a amazing bean so got an Arzum Mirra Greek/Turkish teapot - can't wait to test it this W - I also have tried some of the recipe's and smothies - down 10 lbs in 3 weeks. The Supersmoothie is amazing and I do it at least 3 times a week! :)
It was a very enjoyable book to read. I learned a lot about coffee and how to obtain the very best nutritional value out of different kinds of coffee and ways to create it. I ordered one of the recommended coffees and it was so smooth and quite anks for a amazing read!
Perfect book, lots of amazing & useful info, beautiful much everything you wanted to know about coffee. But some advice...avoid his line of coffee, Dr. Danger...way overpriced & the quality does not live up to what you'd expect from the writings in his book.
The book is well organized and contains a lot of useful and fascinating info about all aspects of coffee from the sourcing of the beans down to drinking it. I really liked the book (and coffee) and will draw upon it frequently as I experiment with various coffee beans, storing and grinding techniques, etc.
I am not a coffee snob. I have never understood why people would take the additional time to stand in line at a coffee shop, or spend the additional $$ to buy those small pods. This book explained it all for me - coffee from every angle: its origins, its history, its role in society and its evolution to the coffee pod. It was a very interesting and enlightening read.
I give this book five out of five stars. I truly enjoyed the book and marveled at the method the author took this small bean and gave us so a lot of varied aspects of this necessary commodity. The writing style is smooth and relaxed even when delving into the statistics and business models. In other words it was a fun read while being interesting and informative.
A fascinating read! Fallon has place together a compelling, entertaining narrative about the history of coffee in our lives, including the implications of our desire for custom, individualized servings of this now indispensable beverage. Even readers who are not coffee drinkers themselves will value Fallon's insights into the cultural context behind the rising number of increasingly gourmet coffee drinks Americans consume each year, as well as the social and environmental consequences of a "single-serve" world.
KJ Fallon shows us the reasons why the globe is falling in love with coffee pods in a large way! You can read it over your single cup of coffee in the morning, maybe they should refer to them as KJ Cups from now on!
When a mate recommended “Coffee For One” I was skeptical. I drink coffee and I am fairly choosy about it, but I didn’t think I’d be much interested in a book on the subject. This book changed my mind. KJ Fallon’s gripping narrative of the latest history of coffee making and coffee drinking that has led us to the single-cup coffee maker brilliantly illuminates the a lot of threads that underlie the explosive growth of the coffee industry. Fallon identifies how the industry has been shaped by the evolving lifestyle needs and private tastes of consumers -- how our tastes both shape the coffee markets and can be shaped by fashion and creative marketing, as well as by savory fresh roasts. “Coffee For One” also gives us a intelligent look at the cutthroat tournament of coffee manufacturers, coffee vendors, and at the talented and often driven people who have made the technology that has created the ease of coffee-making-to-our-taste possible.
This is a truly inspirational read for anyone who has ever wondered, "What is this all for?" when getting up early to go to a job simply for a paycheck. Steve Barker's transparency into his private life and his sharp wittiness makes the story of his own experience easily relatable and hilarious, and gives hope to those as they attempt to create a living outside of the dull, mindless and just-like-everybody else 9 to 5.Having become a fan of the author's work through his contributions to Salon Magazine and other publications, I had an idea of what to expect but I was blown away by the cohesiveness and hilariousness of his most comprehensive work yet. The struggle college graduates face entering the workforce is different, if not more difficult, than it has ever been, with the ever-increasing student debt issue and companies moving more and more jobs overseas. As a result, struggling to search personally-fulfilling work is harder and harder. This is especially real if one is not 'ready' to succumb to the monotony and tedium of doing something you hate, for the sole sake of making Steve tells his story from bouncing from his a lot of contract jobs to temp jobs and back, he describes how his private relationships are shaped by this professional insecurity. His honesty in these passages is admirable, and a risk I have seen very few other writers take. The struggles he faces are true and at times almost torturous for him, but Steve perseveres and refuses to give up on his dream instead of becoming just another cog in the corporate machine. Maybe most importantly, he makes the reader laugh out loud throughout with his nods to instances in famous culture and his distinctive brand of self-deprecating humor.Heavily recommend for anyone who has a job, entering the workforce for the first time, looking for something fresh or is unemployed!This work would also serve extremely well as material in a university course that focuses on the culture of work in America eat stuff!
Amazing book! There were moments where I laughed out loud and moments where I felt sad. This is a must read....you will not be disappointed.
These essays are more down-to-earth and honest than the “Great American” ones that obtain featured in a book once a year. I guess I can connect more with this essayist, because time and again, I have had to go through what he went through, as he penned these for the Disappointing Part (the essay) was one of my favorite ones, since I had gone through a period of unemployment myself. Unemployment is a amazing leveling field. It breaks downs social barriers, and it tempers misplaced pride. What is decent and what is abusive – I guess the answers will have to be relative to one’s baseline of contentment and purpose, as reflected in the conclusion of that essay.I am savoring these essays, so I did not exactly read all of these in one sitting. I am reading them a day at a time. I have read enough to note that what makes these entries worth anyone’s time, is the fact that at the end of each, I am left with a smirk, a ‘hmmm’, and a series of thoughts that I wish to either discuss with someone or answer to in a journal entry myself. As far as I am concerned, that is what amazing essays are all about.I received a review copy of this book from Skyhorse Publishing via NetGalley.
I received this through the Goodreads Giveaway program. This will be the first book I'll have read by Steven Barker.I was immediately drawn into the narrative as Mr. Barker described his find for the excellent method to create enough cash to live on while doing something he loved. Sound familiar anyone?Even though he had a degree he struggled to search the position that allowed him the creativity he strived for while paying his bills. Relationships were lost along the way, interesting characters (and some not so interesting) were met and common policies in huge companies were may never look at another Expedia ad or think about Amazon in quite the same way! But you'll definitely wish to become a devotee of Powell Books.A amazing book about staying real to yourself.
Let's face it, the middle class is dead. Steven Barker sure has resigned himself to this fact and Now for the Disappointing Part is his survival tutorial for getting through your twenties and thirties in an economy and a marketplace that has given starry-eyed college educated young folks a huge Barker expertly and hilariously takes us on his journey from temp job to temp job on a find for work -- or any kind of relationship with another human being -- that might latest and offer some true benefits. Buy this book for the college graduate who should know that a diploma isn't a passport to success but a draft card into a globe of hard work, frequent failure, and existential woe.But it doesn't have to be awful! As Steven points out in his wise and funny essays, signposts along the method present us that struggling to search meaning helps us learn exactly what we wish out of our jobs -- and our lives. Now for the Disappointing part is an incredibly timely and necessary collection. Buy it now.
Laugh out loud funny! If you've ever wondered what the temp life looks like in the 21st century, this is your handbook. From jobs at Amazon, to turning down a buddy job at UPS, to finally discovering that work isn't as poor as he thought it would be, Steven's linear career path proves there's a job out there for r Gen X'ers, this book reminded me of another funny memoir on the temp life, Depth Takes a Holiday: Essays from Lesser Los Angeles.
This book was given to me as a gift. I read it in one sitting. It is filled with humor and an honest assessment of the companies and supervisors that Steven worked for as a temp. I could really relate to his experiences as I also spent a lot of years temping as I was raising my children. I did end up being hired by a Fortune 500 company where I was temping. It was a very amazing position and led a unbelievable career with that company. Steven's writing really draws you in and paints a picture, not always pretty, of being a temp in today's business world. I would recommend this to anyone, not just temps!
I love this book. I read it twice and enjoyed it so much that I spent weeks of my writing time reviewing it for a journal. As a writer, I found it incredibly inspiring. The underlying push in these essays is to write, write, write. The concise lines and the humor draw me in to the story of Barker's temporary jobs, but his wonderful commitment to being a writer (evidenced by his published book!) is what kept me coming back. I wrote more of my own essays after I read it. I remembered to hold sending work out, to renew my dedication.I search this an entertaining read, and I got lost in it in the best way--so I recommend it for fun reading, but I am certain it can also light a fire under you, whether it's writing, or some other pursuit, that's your largest desire. Barker will support you remember how to obtain there.
Steve Barker tells a story of post college graduate life that a lot of of us have experienced but have difficulty putting into words. Add in the family success dynamics and the relationship roller coaster, and you have an honest and enjoyable read about doing what you love versus doing what you have to. Cliche review uphead - you will laugh, you will cry but most importantly you will root for the main hero to have it all figured out by the end. Amazing read overall!
According to the author’s half-sister, everything H.E. Jacob undertook was aimed at reconciling differences. In one sense, this story was intended to promote reconciliation between the Arab and Western worlds, with the idea of coffee as the “wine of Islam” (as we learn in the introduction from the 1998 edition).The amazing irony, of course, is that although this book was written 61 years ago, the notice of reconciliation is probably more necessary today than it was in is prescient in a second way: As a “documentary novel,” pioneering the concept of creative nonfiction by combining the reality of nonfiction with the presentation and prose of fiction, it preceded and helped lay the groundwork for what became known as the fresh Fresh Journalism, as practiced by Tom Wolfe, Hunter Thompson, Gay Talese and others, beginning in ly, by anticipating the tremendous popularity of coffee in the United States, with a Starbucks on nearly every corner, Jacob was prescient in yet another ock full of wonderfully written stories from exotic places, this book is a unbelievable method to pass the time while enjoying your favorite cup of Joe at Starbucks, Pete’s or whatever your preferred coffee house may be.Daniel K.

Wasn't sure if I'd like this book - is there enough history about coffee to fill a whole book written in the 1930s? Surprise! There is. Fascinating, too. Who would have thought that goats discovered coffee and the Ottoman Empire failed in Europe because of coffee. And it turned out to be a fast read. A small jumbled. Sometimes confusing. Seemed to be written by a committee rather than a person. Regardless, if you love coffee, you'll search this book fascinating. Oh, if you don't understand economics, there's a portion of this book that uses coffee to explain the world's economy. Really!
Writing is basic. Art work style is rather simplistic and at times unproportional - more than just your standard yaoi. A lack of backgrounds, choppy dialogue, and extremely quick pacing create this feel beautiful rushed. It's clear they just wish to obtain to the hero interaction and eventual fan service. 2/5. Points for having clean linework and attempting to draw emotion. Not the worst I've seen. Definitely nowhere near the best.
This book was absolutely beautifully written I cannot believe it from earlier time I didn't place it down until I was finished. It was really unusually done but he story came together very well. I want we had gotten the H point of view
Though this story line was written in the 90's it could have been written today. Nadine has agreed to become a surrogate mother for her mate and her husband. But with a twist. They will do it without a doctors help. Yea the old fashioned way. This does seem like adultery but they have his wife's permission. Crazy huh! Well lets add the fact that Nadine has been in love with Cameron for years. And he married a mate of hers. Not all is as it seems even thus far. When the wife leaves him, yea she did, what will happen to the baby? That is the story line here. Elizabeth Power took a taboo topic and turned it into a HEA story for HP. Have read several of her books and still will look for more.
Cameron, the character is married to Lisa. Nadine, Lisa's mate is secretly in love with Cam and has agreed to act as a surrogate for the couple as Lisa is unable to have children. Nadine needs the cash the couple offered for a personal matter. The story begins with Cam and Nadine in a hotel about to engage in adultery. But don't worry. This was all set up by Lisa who really wanted a baby and agreed that the usual methods - all those try tubes and items - would take too long so let's go ahead and do it the old fashioned way. And do it they did - all weekend long. The end effect being that Nadine ends up pregnant. Well, shortly after that, things start falling apart when Nadine sees something that causes her to decide that she is no longer willing to give her baby to the couple. Cam of course is enraged when he hears this and the story takes off from there. Not to provide any more "spoilers", but the usual ups and downs and misunderstandings occur and a fourth party becomes involved. Lisa is not meant to be a sympathetic hero but I cannot support feeling that a small bit of hypocrisy was involved here. I liked the story for most part. Became a small annoyed at the author sometimes for trying to whitewash Nadine; she did what she felt she had to do and stuck up for herself when necessary. Cam wasn't a brute. It's obvious he cared for Nadine and wanted the baby. His issue was that he did not always communicate but then if he did where would this story be? Their HEA was totally believable.
