We in the Cooks and Books club take coffee very seriously. Love doesn't quite say it... need is more like it. Not just any cup of joe will do, of course. We in the Bay Area are lucky enough to have true coffee artisans living among us, folks who go that extra mile to find and roast the best beans, and present us with something that is awfully close to nirvana in a mug.James and Caitlin Freeman from Blue Bottle Coffee have a new book out. THE BLUE BOTTLE CRAFT OF COFFEE is not only packed with indispensible information and history, but also contains some great recipes so you can make your own delicious treats to go with your perfect cup. We're pretty excited that James and Caitlin will be at our store in the Marina (2251 Chestnut St in San Francisco) this coming Thursday, October 11 at 7PM to talk about their new book. See you there!
