"A playground of information and art...required reading, and not just for West Coast coffee types."
"An excellent road-trip companion. Toss it into the glove compartment before your next car trip. Whether you're headed to Bend, Ashland or San Jose, Calif., there's great coffee to discover."
"A fabulous, informative read coffee aficionados will definitely want to check out. In fact, I would love to use Hanna's guide to coffee as a map for a future, very caffeinated road trip of my own!"
