This is the first in the coffeehouse series and what a delight it was to read. Although the Berkley typeface drives me crazy because it is so small, the book was so good that I couldn't stop turning the pages. I love the characters and the ambiance of the coffeehouse. I can just imagine cuddling up there with a good book and brew. There was a lot of insight into the coffee world and tips I would have never asked about espresso even though I am quite the connoisseur. I am picking up the second book right away and can't wait to see what is in store in "Through the Grinder".
