It’s a book about our national drink with 140 passages, 140 characters or less, and includes 100 passages I’ve authored and 40 passages that I’ve curated exclusively for the book from the likes of: Rosie Perez, David Hasselhoff, Robert Evans, Perez Hilton, Elvira and coffee shops Aroma Espresso, Ninth Street Espresso, The Bean, Joe’s and many more.
