The last few nights I've been kept up and I blame it on this caffeine-infused exploration of Colombian coffee.

Permission to Slurp is the perfect place to start if you're curious about coffee in general, or if you are intimidated by all that fancy apparatus and the growing menu of options you find in coffee shops these days. All of that is covered in this book that really lifts the lid on the coffee pot.

Does coffee really bloom? Is it a bean, a seed, a fruit, or a cherry? Is cupping a massage technique or how you taste coffee? I always thought 'specialty coffee' was simply 'fancy coffee' but it turns out that there's quite a bit more to it than that.

Karen Attman writes like she's in a conversation with you, and you really do feel like you're sitting in a coffee shop with her pointing things out to you. The language is simple and friendly and educative.

I now feel like I can walk into a coffee shop with more confidence. This book not only gives you permission to slurp but permission to experiment as well.
