The perfect gift for your constantly caffeinated friend!

Author Brandi Evans was named an “upcoming food blogger” by Dr. Oz in 2009 for her popular food blog BranAppetit. Though coffee is a staple for millions worldwide who rely on it to get up and stay up throughout the day, it is almost always consumed in the same form: as a hot drink. There is so much potential that has yet to be explored!

Thanks to the varying origins of beans and the 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. From new coffee drinks to chocolate cupcakes and spicy tacos, coffee adds a depth of flavor to every dish.

In Cooking with Coffee, Evans discusses the history of coffee, the different brewing options, and how to make the best coffee in your own home. The 60 recipes include salted coffee ricotta toast, coffee braised ribs, mocha mole chili, and triple chip espresso cookies.
