    This review is from: Coffee: Scrumptious Drinks and Treats (Hardcover)

    This is a gorgeous little book that could serve quite well as a gift. The photos are eye-catching, delectable, and frequent. The recipe layout is clean, simple, and easy to read. Directions are easy to follow, and there are no unnecessarily complex recipes in here.

    The book starts off with a modest amount of information aimed at helping you to produce a wonderful cup of coffee. (This is largely information such as different brewing methods, a few notes on different roasts, and a page of tips and hints.) This is followed by ‘recipes’ for the basic coffee drinks that everyone loves. However, the book swiftly moves on to the recipes you won’t find in every other book; this seems to me to be a very good compromise.

    ‘Coffee’ includes recipes for new and different coffee drinks (one of my favorites is a coffee-based ice cream soda), tidbits to enjoy with your coffee (such as a fantastic pastry to dip in your coffee that’s easily assembled from a sheet of puff pastry and some crystallized ginger), and coffee-flavored treats. We made an ice cream recipe from this book that was out of this world. If you’re feeling adventurous you could make a coffee-flavored cake with coffee-toffee icing, or you could keep things simple (yet impressive) with java jolt truffles or coffee caramels. Every recipe we tried came out beautifully, and the directions were detailed and easy to follow.

    Betty Rosbottom delivers again! This is a wonderful little book. I made the cream cheese brownies to rave reviews and have other recipes tabbed to try. I suggest to anyone reading this review that any Rosbottom cookbook is a resource you will come back to over and over again.

    Lots of Liqueur in Recipes, January 7, 2011
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Coffee: Scrumptious Drinks and Treats (Hardcover)

    I bought this item for a gift for someone who loves coffee but doesn’t drink alcohol at all. A lot of the coffee receipes and treats had liqueur in them so I returned it. I thought the way the book was organized was great and the pictures looked incredible. Just sad I had to return it and find something else.

    Well-balanced, lively, informative, and entertaining, March 16, 2006

    This review is from: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Starting and Running a Coffee Bar (Paperback)

    One of the things that struck me most about this book is that it seems perfectly balanced. By this I mean that it covers all the general business angles of running a coffee bar, but it never loses sight of its coffee-oriented focus. While there’s certainly plenty of information that people running other businesses would find useful in here, you’ll never find yourself thinking that you could have gotten the same information out of a more generic business or restaurant business guide. Everything focuses on the particular application of principles to the unique issues and problems that face the owner and operator of a coffee bar. Even when discussing cross-promotion and various forms of publicity the book discusses things that are likely to work best with your products and services.

    You won’t just find information in here on business plans, licensing issues, equipment, suppliers, staffing, and publicity however. There are guides to roasting beans (in case you want to create your own blends, or just want to understand what you’re buying), creating a wide variety of coffee drinks and related treats, and cultivating repeat customers.

    In addition to the vast wealth of information, the attitude with which this book was written is fantastic. It’s practical yet positive, realistic yet optimistic. It livens things up with a dry wit yet never allows the humor to get in the way of the information it’s trying to convey. It will make you excited about even topics like marketing your business without ever coming across as empty cheerleading.

    I quite enjoyed reading this book, and have to firmly remind myself after reading it that no, I really am not the kind of person who can go out and start such a business. Because after reading all of this handy and fascinating information, the prospect is delightfully tempting!

    This is a must for anyone who plans to open a coffee bar or shop. It not only provides all the necessary information for menu, location, prepration of specialty coffee drinks, everything you need to know about running a business is included. The descriptions of employee training manual and employee handbook, how to hire and fire, as well as too many vital things to mention, have me reading it again and again. This book will be a useful tool for months (years) in the future.

    I am planning to open a Coffee Business. I have bought other books about this subject and I think this book compensates what others lack.
    I would recommend you to buy it.
