Moments at each venue.
In his book, Coffee Crazy Robert Galinsky captures the communal nature of what "grabbing a cup of coffee" means by writing 140 "Tweet" length passages and also has crowd sourced the mindset of an entire rabid fan base and industry. Coffee Crazy taps into the current zeitgeist and excitement associated with the social media and coffee frenzy that fuels families, foodies, entrepreneurs, café culture, corporate break rooms, and thought leaders who are boosted by caffeine and crema, dreaming about the next big idea! Coffee Crazy is part inspirational reading, part coffee talk towards personal growth, part anecdotal topical coffee convo/humor and lastly a book that you won't put down until you've read every last word... good to the last drop! Coffee Crazy shows just how big the beverage is and is a passionate response from coffee lovers and the industry, as they rally around their beloved beverage.
