From the Author
Earlier in my life I had the pleasure of working at a very popular Espresso drive-through. I loved working there - it was fun and challenging (not to mention delicious)!
During that time, I was pretty surprised at how simple and easy the cold (iced and frozen) espresso drinks were to make. People spent insane amounts of money on them every week, but they really didn't need to.
Those weekday morning visits often added up - $5/day works out to be $1300 per year. That's positively cringe-worthy!
Why I wrote this book:
A few years ago, I opened a company that sells travel mugs and coffee tumblers and I knew that I wanted to help my customers save even more money by learning to make their own cold espresso drinks.
And thusly, my book was born.
I've written this book to walk you through the process, step-by-step, to make your own delicious iced coffees and frappuccino-style blended drinks.
Who I wrote this book for:
This book is specifically written towards those of you who aren't necessarily interested in learning the perfect grinding, tamping, and shot-pulling techniques of traditional espresso -- you simply want to be able to make a delicious drink like the one you get from your local coffee house.
If that is you, then I truly hope you enjoy this book. It came from my heart, with a true desire to share my knowledge -- and I hope you find it useful.
