Coffee has never been better--or cooler! Ever wonder what goes into making the perfect cup of coffee? There's more to it than you think, and a new breed of coffee nerds has transformed the cheap, gritty sludge your parents drink into the coolest food trend around, with an obsessive commitment to sourcing, roasting, and preparation that has taken the drink to delicious new heights. Coffee Nerd details the history behind the beans and helps you navigate the exciting and sometimes intimidating new wave of coffee. From finding obscure Japanese brewing equipment to recipes and techniques for brewing amazing coffee at home, you'll increase your geek cred--and discover a whole new world of coffee possibilities. Whether you are looking to refine your French-press recipe or just can't survive a morning without a handcrafted latte, this book is sure to stimulate you as you pore over the art of preparing an incredibly smooth cup of coffee.

Not book related, but coffee related, soo...

I treated myself to this cute holiday Bones Coffee Company mug to celebrate my first milestone on my #soberjourney 🎉♥️☕️

In the background there you can see Nico stare down Charlie as she protects the chew toy she finally snagged from him during a moment of distraction 😂

I love whole bean and ground. No pods 🙂
I‘m all about the medium roast but I‘ll drink any roast (mom of a preteen and two toddlers here).
I love flavored coffees and will use syrups when I have them for a splurge!
I love all teas.
#coffebeanbookclub round 2!!! I‘m so excited!

BethM I have no concept on how to use whole bean. 13mo
Mommamanzi @BethM I was intimidated by it at first but it‘s so simple. Just buy a grinder! Put the whole beans in and grind til you get the consistency you like it (I experimented a little from super fine to coarse) then use it like you normally would! 13mo
MommyOfTwo I was just wondering about what you like😊 13mo

Yes, though I prefer sugar free.

Both- I loooove tea.
Hard to say I have a cabinet full of varying flavors that I enjoy.
Coconut and pineapple

Your book (along with everyone else‘s) will end up making a full rotation through everyone in the club. 13mo
LazyDays Oh wow so we could have our book make around through 7 people or would it be a smaller group like 4 people? 13mo
Mommamanzi @LazyDays it depends on how many sign up but it would be more like 12 people. 13mo
LazyDays You are awesome thank you for informing me!💜😊 So once a month we send our book and coffee to one person tell we complete our circle of people?🌈😊💜 again sorry for being slow I'm excited about every swap and coffee and I are BFFs so this is up my alley. (I'm just on alot of swaps 😄😄💜🌈) 13mo

This remains my favorite book-so difficult to choose a mug as all represent memories- we buy one wherever we travel & when visiting museums, historic sites. But this one names the beach my father loved & visited daily.It means family; we all enjoyed the Cape since I was 12. My parents moved permanently when I was working south of Boston- 35+ yrs ago.
Thanks @hermyknee - see what coffee & books evoke from me!

@hermyknee Here is my #coffeecoffeecoffee giveaway entry. I also used this picture for @Molly_the_mezzo birthday post. This mug is my favorite, for this quote guides me whenever I question day to day events. If I ever get another tattoo, it will be this. I was 57 when I got my first, it‘s never too late. My favorite book is actually BOOKS, because I can‘t pick just one. The doggo is my love, #Dixie AKA The Dude, cause she abides.

I don‘t have a favourite book, because there‘s just SO many good books out there. So I choose to take the pic of my favourite mug with a stack (one of many) of my most anticipated reads. 📚

@hermyknee Thank you so much for your #CoffeeCoffeeCoffee #giveaway. This is so fun....for all of us coffee addicts.

My favorite read lately with my Joshua Tree mug that my daughter gave me from her travels. Anything my kids give to me are my most precious items. ❤️

hermyknee 😍 I love it! And the Rothfuss! 1y
ChrisM I got that mug on my trip to Joshua Tree National Park in February & love it! The map on the inside is so cool!! 1y
AmyG @ChrisM According to my daughter....there wasn‘t much choice. ;) I love the map on the inside. And she went there in Feb, too. Pretty funny. (edited) 1y

I don‘t know about you guys, but the weather here in TX went from gorgeous spring to the dead of winter over night. I‘ve been bundled under blankets with my dogs, drinking coffee and reading all day ? I have some fun coffee themed bookish items, and I‘d love to do a giveaway for coffee lovers!

Just post a photo of your favorite book and your favorite coffee mug with the hashtag #coffeecoffeecoffee and tag me!

open til midnight mañana (Sunday)

So I took a sip of my morning coffee after cleaning my keurig with vinegar and this was the face I made 😂 Apparently I didn't cycle it enough to get all the vinegar out thus resulting in very sour and gross tasting coffee. I can see how this day is gonna go because now I don't get to enjoy my coffee and a book before work 😠

guinsgirlreads I made that mistake once! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y
dariazeoli This is one of the reasons I‘m way overdue on a vinegar rinse on my machine! I‘m still recovering from that taste 😁 1y
TheQuietQuill @dariazeoli haha yeah I won't be doing a vinegar rinse for a while after that gross taste haha 😂 1y
TheQuietQuill Haha it totally ruined my morning @guinsgirlreads 1y

@MaleficentBookDragon I received this last week and haven‘t had a moment to actually post. Thank you so much for all your awesome goodness rice crispies are a weakness of mine soooo that lasted about 3 seconds after the box. Thank you thank you! Also the book looks soooooo good!

MaleficentBookDragon When I went and bought the coffee and candy, they had chocolate covered Oreos. I didn‘t even pretend they weren‘t for me 😁. They only lasted until I got home. 1y
