    A good ref. book for the kitchen of someone w/ experience. The size is perfect for a quick kitchen reference book. The format is user friendly and has a certain charm. It is not the best guide for begining cappuccino makers as the directives are vague regarding how to make the perfect cup of expresso. As the book points out itself, in order to get a perfect cappuccino, you must first brew a perfect expresso. Overall, I enjoyed the recipes and like the fact that cold drinks were included for the warmer months. The price makes it an easy addition to any kitchen that has an expresso machine.

    Wonderful beginner book for coffee lovers This book has every catigory of coffee beverage and is great for the beginner, or as a gift for the friend who just bought there first cappuccino/expresso machine. I found lots of interesting drinks to try, hot and cold as well as lists and ideas for flavors to go with the drinks. I brought it home and read it, then tried several items all that same night.

    latte lover I bought this book from many years ago and have fully enjoyed it. It has a lot of variety with the recipes, it also has a section on Italian Cream sodas, which are very good, especially in the summer time when you would rather have something cool as opposed to something hot. Most all the syrups can be bought from Da Vinci Gourmet if you have no place to buy them in your home town. My favorite recipes vary with this book, but I have tried many. The two best would be Strawberry Amaretto Mocha and Coffee Toffee. Although I do find all of them very good. I wish there were more books like this, it mostly contains all recipes which was what I was looking for.
