If I can’t drink coffee in bed at night I will read (and dream) about it

I am a bit of a coffee addict.  My husband makes me a latte in the morning before I head to the office. I have a couple cups of coffee during the day.  If we have company over in the evening I have been known to fix evening lattes for everyone, but I have to draw a line somewhere.  So, I have decided that I should not get back out of bed to go make another cup after settling in for the night.

I can however read about different varieties of beans and different techniques to roast and brew them.  This is my kind of self help book.  I am about twenty pages into “The blue bottle craft of coffee.”  It is a fun book about the owner of Blue Bottle Coffee‘s half cocked quest to learn more about roasting and brewing coffee. I say half cocked with love, really! This book is filled with great stories, interesting facts and RECIPES!  I can’t a wait to get some free time to try the recipe for madeleines.  They are one of my girls favorites! Who knows maybe I will be roasting my own coffee beans by the time I am done.
