As Madonna put it ever so eloquently: Espresso yourself. Tadum-tsh! Better latte than never.
Ahhh, coffee and procaffeinating, I never grow bored from how the world changes after you ingest it – the one liquid that only leads to exhaustion if you decide to not ingest it.
If you have perused some of my emissions on here it should not be hard to detect that not unlike T.S. Eliot, I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
Then again, I kind of like Ralph Waldo Emerson’s take on it, who thought that it was a weak dilution with the surest poison being time. No matter if you think coffee is a vitamin or a drug, coffee makes the world go round.
For some, the fascination with the black gold goes a bit further and way deeper than the recent renaissance that came with the advent of hipster culture. There is an art to coffee and photographer Horst A. Friedrichs turned his lens to highlight the finer nuances in this coffee table book par excellence, e.g. baristas at work and a myriad of techniques of extracting the black liquid via espresso machines to consumers indulging in the enjoyment of it.
Event fringe phenomena like coffee related couture is paid attention to and the accompanying essays substantiate the eye candy with details on the transformative alchemy.
A delightful, opulently illustrated addition to your coffee table, be it for the uninitiated or the hardcore aficionado.
