    I had heard this was a sort of retelling of Jane Austen s Emma as a modern barista, which has a ton of potential But the execution kind of killed everything.The main plot idea is that Jane is a barista who can tell pretty much anyone s drink order at a glance She starts to play matchmaker through drink preferences, but eventually realizes she likes the guy she s set her friend up with The friend gladly gives up the guy at the so that Jane can be happy I wasn t really expecting anything compl I had heard this was a sort of retelling of Jane Austen s Emma as a modern barista, which has a ton of potential But the execution kind of killed everything.The main plot idea is that Jane is a barista who can tell pretty much anyone s drink order at a glance She starts to play matchmaker through drink preferences, but eventually realizes she likes the guy she s set her friend up with The friend gladly gives up the guy at the so that Jane can be happy I wasn t really expecting anything complex from the story, but could barely finish this book because Jane was so thoroughly unpleasant I just don t like reading from the POV of super judgmental people who complain about life and think they re better than others All of the characters were pretty flat and dull, though, so it was hard to care about anything And the story itself was super short, but still got cluttered up by a ton of weird details that really didn t matter like Jane s fashion ambitions Nothing was particularly enjoyable and I really wish I had just called this a DNF I mostly stuck with it for the whole Jane Austen theme, but it s a VERY loose retelling More like it shares the idea of matchmaking and the main character liking the guy she s paired her friend with aaaaand that s about it

    I have to wonder if the author actually knows anything about coffee It bothers me when I m reading a book about something I know a lot about being a barista and I see so many obvious errors, not just in the writing style or descriptions, but with the actual subject of the book I ve been a barista for over five years and, granted, I have never and never will work at a Starbucks, the basic concept should be universal However, I didn t feel like the author had any sort of relationship with cof I have to wonder if the author actually knows anything about coffee It bothers me when I m reading a book about something I know a lot about being a barista and I see so many obvious errors, not just in the writing style or descriptions, but with the actual subject of the book I ve been a barista for over five years and, granted, I have never and never will work at a Starbucks, the basic concept should be universal However, I didn t feel like the author had any sort of relationship with coffee The mechanics she used when describing how to make drinks was similar to what it would like from a customer s perspective of how a barista makes drinks It s also very obvious that she s writing about Starbucks, and not just from the drink descriptions and names, but from the apparent use of automatic espresso machines My opinion of Starbucks is very low for reasons relating to the facts that they re a corporation, taking advantage of coffee bean harvesters in foreign countries, and overextend their locations and employees, to the facts that they consistently claim to serve better and fresher coffee than the competition not true and a very arrogant assumption to make , use automatic machines and don t bother to train employees how to properly prepare an espresso beverage for someone, and make up ridiculous terminology for their baristas to memorize and expect their customers to be able to order with.Okay, so now I sound like an elitist who is waiting this book based on her disdain for Starbucks Partially true, but only factors into maybe 10% of my opinion of the book as a whole Moving on to the main character, Jane This girl has no idea who she is or what she wants She s loyal to the point of being friends with someone for several years who she doesn t seem to respect very much or involve herself in much on an emotional level If I removed the word friend from this book and gave it someone else to read for the first time, I m positive they would have no idea that that was their original relationship They communicate with each other as if they re mere acquaintances This is a huge problem in a book written for young adults because when young adults bond with someone, and decide they re best friends, there s a deep connection that you can feel automatically.Also, Jane never seems particularly interested in anything that s happening around her She likes to talk to people and match them up with others That s not just the plot, that s her personality She supposedly wants to go to school for fashion and, while the author mentions the clothes she wearsoften than she mentions anything else about the girl, there s never any mention whatsoever about her desire to work in the fashion industry What does she even want to do as a career This doesn t make sense and seems like a very bland, vague attempt making her character seem fresh and cool Jane s stereotyping of people in general, actually, seems to be another attempt at this Disappointing Do we really needbooks told from a shallow, emotionally distant, judgmental teenager s point of view Nothing about this book is believable, which brings me to the whole business aspect I m not just a barista, I ve also been the inventory manager at a 24 7 coffee shop for almost a year now I handle the deposits for the store on a daily basis and I find it extremely unlikely that a corporate coffee shop can do the level of business the author implies Somehow, the stressed out store manager, is able to make enough money on one Friday night to make it reasonable for their district manager to let him completely redo the entire store s decor for only one day I also find it incredibly unlikely that one of the baristas would have any time to stand around and write an entire notebook s worth of cliched notes on customers drink choices I know from experience that it s almost impossible to send a complete text in between customers, orders, and work related duties.On that note, if I ever saw a manager treating an employee the way that Derek and Jane do, I would expect them to be fired or, at the very least, written up You can not force only one employee to clean the bathrooms every day for a month in retaliation for them telling your boss you re giving away free drinks to hot customers

    You know what, I absolutely adore coffee But I m kind of picky the traditional filter coffee, which is famous in the fast food joints of South India, is something I really like compared to the instant types But still, coffee is coffee I ve been known to suck on the coffee flavored toffees during tedious classes to help me stay awake So naturally I was drawn to this book The cover, the blurb, the idea of people meeting their perfect soul mates based on their favorite type of coffee Sign m You know what, I absolutely adore coffee But I m kind of picky the traditional filter coffee, which is famous in the fast food joints of South India, is something I really like compared to the instant types But still, coffee is coffee I ve been known to suck on the coffee flavored toffees during tedious classes to help me stay awake So naturally I was drawn to this book The cover, the blurb, the idea of people meeting their perfect soul mates based on their favorite type of coffee Sign me up But I was left quite disappointed IMO, this was a perfect example of a unique concept but poor execution.WHAT BUGGED ME 1 The characters are quite flat I especially didn t like the MC She s snobbish, makes fun of older people for their looks.She s supposed to be aiming for a career in fashion, but nothing in the storyline ever connects with that Her co worker in the coffee shop is supposed to have done mean things to her, but again we are only told this Nothing is ever shown to us, nothing is worked seamlessly into the plot.2 AND, the plot itself Very clich Girl MC has a crush on the hot guy, who ultimately ends up with the mean bitchy girl who redeems herself in the end Sweet funny guy who isn t extremely hot or anything secretly likes the MC MC s best friend likes sweet, funny guy But in the end, MC realizes she s perfectly matched with the said sweet, funny guy, who the best friend nobly sacrifices and everyone lives happily ever after Where have I not heard this before 3 The love interest was a nice guy, but I could see no chemistry between him and the MC whatsoever.4 The ending was too tidy and too convenient Absolutely no mess and very unrealistic.The redeeming thing for me was obviously the matching people based on their favorite drinks thing I find that extremely unique, very interesting and quite probable in real life too So honestly, I wouldn t mind meeting an espressologist and checking out her talents in the same Even if she s a tad annoying ACTUAL RATING 2.5

    Three words frothy, fun, flavorful Move over Cupid, the Espressologist is in The Esprossologist is a very fun and cute story The characters weren t quite developed enough for me Even Jane the MC, felt a little two dimensional I didn t feel any connection to her at all Which was disappointing, because I really enjoyed what little we did learn about her.Her relationship with Cam was another aspect that I think fell flat I could see it happening, but it didn t have any real development I nee Three words frothy, fun, flavorful Move over Cupid, the Espressologist is in The Esprossologist is a very fun and cute story The characters weren t quite developed enough for me Even Jane the MC, felt a little two dimensional I didn t feel any connection to her at all Which was disappointing, because I really enjoyed what little we did learn about her.Her relationship with Cam was another aspect that I think fell flat I could see it happening, but it didn t have any real development I needed a little bitinteraction between the two characters.I loved the premise of the novel, match making with your favorite coffee drinks That was incredibly fun Overall, an entertaining debut novel
