Jane Turner worked a barista for a coffee shop called Wired Joe’s. She had a theory that she can tell a lot about a person by their favorite coffee drinks which she called it as ‘espressology’. She would jot down the person’s favorite coffee and personality in her notebook. Then she started to hook up some of her friends and co-workers by their coffee preference. When her boss, Darek found out about her talent, he made her to use her espressology and play as a match maker based on the customer’s preferred coffee to promote their shop. But why was it that she can’t seem to find her own match?
I’m a fan of coffee. And I adore books that feature coffeehouse, cake house or anything like it. When I saw The Espressologist by Kristina Springer, I knew that I have to read this one. I enjoyed reading about Jane and how she matched her customers. I love that there were lots about coffee and I get to learn a lot types of coffee from this book. I think the author did a good job with the story and the plot.
Although Espressologist were categorized as a romance, I didn’t see much romance between Jane, the main character and her love interest, Cam. I wish there were a little bit more interaction between them as they were supposed to be the main characters. However, I do think that Espressologist was a light, fun, cute and entertaining read that any coffee lover would enjoy.
