In a culture where coffee shops are an expected sight on every street corner and caf menus require twenty feet of wall space, it can be a daunting experience to journey into the surprisingly vast world of coffee. There are resources to guide you through the espresso menu, but in this day and age, you need more than a book of facts. The American barista plays as much a role as the coffee itself in your caf experience. Hip, tattooed, and full of opinions, baristas pride themselves on their coffee snobbery, and for better or worse, they are the gatekeepers of your caffeine. Luckily, The Coffee Snob is your sharp-tongued crash course to the world of espresso and the baristas who prepare it for you. David Foster's fast paced, clever book is a wealth of information about the core caf menu told through the lens of his years of experience as a barista. Find out why coffee snobs scoff at the "skinny vanilla latte," and why macchiatos have become a metaphor for the battle between corporate coffee and small independent shops. Whether you want to know more about your favorite drink or branch out into new caffeinated horizons, The Coffee Snob will empower you to order your next espresso drink with confidence and just a touch of barista-certified snobbery.
