The Book Lover's Guide to Coffee

The Book Lover's Guide to Coffee

“Good. Coffee is good for you. It’s the caffeine in it,” Ernest Hemingway’s character Bill Gorton says in The Sun Also Rises. Indeed, Hemingway. It is the caffeine.

But there’s more to it than that. Coffeehouses have long acted as our “third places,” hotbeds of intellectualism where ideas are shared, argued, revised, and rinsed down with another invigorating cup.

It’s this open celebration of ideas that makes coffee and literature inseparable. To commemorate that union, we’ve created a free guide filled with the following:
  • 6 authors on coffee's cultural significance;
  • The rituals of 7 famous coffee-obsessed authors;
  • Infographics rich with caffeinated, bookish data;
  • Tips on taking the perfect coffee + book photo;
  • Brewing guides from Birch Coffee.
We're pleased to have Sprudge and Birch Coffee as cosponsors of the guide: Sprudge is your home for global coffee culture and original journalism; Birch Coffee is a specialty coffee roaster with a Roast House and 7 coffee shops in NYC.
