Good book, but stock up on your syrups before buying
on 31 May 2013
Ok good points - there are LOTS of really great recipe ideas in this book, lots of useful information about coffee and where it comes from and detailed info on how to make basic coffee drinks. The recipes are split into hot drinks, cold drinks, alcoholic drinks and seasonal drinks. It's easy to understand and well presented with photos to see the finished products.
Bad points - you need a lot of syrups to make the recipes. If you're like me and think you'll be able to use standard kitchen cupboard ingredients, then this book isn't for you. I already own caramel vanilla mint hazelnut and strawberry and there are a fair few drinks I still can't make because ill have to start hunting online for more syrups.
That's really the only bad point. Otherwise, it's a good book
