Did you know that coffee was recommended as protection against the bubonic plague in the seventeenth century? Or that tea was believed to make men 'unfit to do their business' and blamed for women becoming unattractive? On the other hand, a cup of chocolate was supposed to have exactly the opposite effect on the drinker's sex life and physical appearance. These three beverages arrived in England in the 1650s from faraway, exotic places: tea from China, coffee from the Middle East and chocolate from Mesoamerica. Physicians, diarists and politicians were quick to comment on their supposed benefits and alleged harmfulness, using newspapers, pamphlets and handbills both to promote and denounce their sudden popularity. Others seized the opportunity to serve the growing appetite for these newly discovered drinks by setting up coffee houses or encouraging one-upmanship in increasingly elaborate tea-drinking rituals. How did the rowdy and often comical initial reception of these drinks form the roots of today's enduring caffeine culture? From the tale of the goatherd whose animals became frisky on coffee berries to a duchess with a goblet of poisoned chocolate, this book, illustrated with eighteenth-century satirical cartoons and early advertisements, tells the extraordinary story of our favourite hot drinks.

This book also covers topics such as: The history of the bean Chemical composition Caffeine and decaf Milk Roasting and grinding Machines and gadgets . . . and many more Caffeine is the most widely consumed mind-altering molecule in the world; we cannot get enough of it.

(Amazon customer) For everyone who wants to understand more about coffee and its wonderful nuances and possibilities, this is the book to have. Coffee has never been better, or more interesting, than it is today. Coffee producers have access to more varieties and techniques than ever before and we, as consumers, can share in that expertise to make sure the coffee we drink is the best we can find. Where coffee comes from, how it was harvested, the roasting process and the water used to make the brew are just a few of the factors that influence the taste of what we drink. Champion barista and coffee expert James Hoffmann examines these key factors, looking at varieties of coffee, the influence of terroir, how it is harvested and processed, the roasting methods used, through to the way in which the beans are brewed. Country by country - from Bolivia to Zambia - he then identifies key characteristics and the methods that determine the quality of that country's output. Along the way we learn about everything from the development of the espresso machine, to why strength guides on supermarket coffee are really not good news. This is the first book to chart the coffee production of over 35 countries, encompassing knowledge never previously published outside the coffee industry.

No Nice Girl Swears is the original, trailblazing guide to the "new etiquette," brimming with timeless advice on style, romance, and grace, and finally back in print 90 years after its original release. Forewords by today's editor in chief of Town & Country and the editor in chief of Vogue from 1914-1952. Heralded as the go-to guide for soon-to-be debutantes and ladies who'd recently made their debut, No Nice Girl Swears ushered in a "new etiquette" on its release in 1933, much to the shock-and delight-of the high-society crowd of jazz-age America. Today it is equal parts time capsule (how to dress for dinner on your transatlantic voyage) and timeless missive (how to ditch a date who's had a few too many). Worldly-wise socialite Alice-Leone Moats advises on everything from style and dating to travel and party throwing, and weeds through the dos and don'ts of weddings, weekend trips, and the workplace. Her wisdom, though steeped in the charm of her time, endures: treat others-and yourself-with respect, always put your best foot forward, and don't throw a party without champagne. It's just good manners. This keepsake volume includes a new foreword from Stellene Volandes, the editor in chief of Town & Country, the original foreword from Edna Woolman Chase, Vogue's editor in chief from 1914-1952, and a contextualizing preface. It encourages consideration of what etiquette rules we'd like instilled today, and shows how Moats helped usher in a world where women could speak-and act-freely.

Non-alcoholic beverages are now burgeoning in restaurants, eateries and drinks establishments. Cocktails have recently catapulted themselves centre stage and mocktails are following hard on their heels - in fact mocktails are billed alongside cocktails in every serious drinks establishment, as those who serve drinks now see that partying with alcohol is not everyone's choice. Furthermore, giving non-drinkers variety and stimulation away from alcohol is crucial to offering excellent customer service. Modern mocktails use fresh, organic ingredients to create exciting, non-alcoholic beverages, along with tinctures and minute drops of bitters. Because mocktails are packed with fresh, natural ingredients, they often have far fewer calories than traditional cocktails and much more nutritional value. Good mocktail recipes do also rely on delicately balanced recipes because the body and kick found in alcohol has to be replaced with strong flavour profiles. The Bartender's Guide to Mocktails features over 90 mocktail recipes, including Virgin Raspberry Cooler, Beetroot Virgin Mary, Sangria Seca, Faux Kir Royale and Mango Lassi. An introduction by master mixologist Michael Stringer looks at mixing techniques and different genres of mocktail, from herb-infused and faux-fizz mocktails to limeades, elderberry infusions and spiced mocktails. Selected pages also offer useful practical information about the art of making a mocktail, including how to recreate the flavour of alcohol in a non-alcoholic drink and suggestions for distinctive flavours and aromas that will give mocktails a non-alcoholic kick.
Coffee Is More Than Just a Necessary Morning Beverage or Afternoon Pick-Me-Up! Coffee. Joe. Java. Liquid gold.

Thanks to varying origins of beans and differences in the roasting process, coffee offers a wide range of flavors and undertones, which means there's a coffee bean you can use in just about anything.
