A collection of short stories that is about coffee just as much as it is about people and life and love.

Wonderful! I really loves these short stories. They were wholly relatable and the imagery was simplistically detailed. My favourite was the second story with the two teenagers. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

First of all, let me just get this out there, I LOVE coffee. So, of course, the idea caught my attention. But then, it was just so well-written and flowed so nicely, that it was even better than just a story about coffee (which, by the way, I've been waiting for someone to pluck up the courage to write a story about such a genius creation as coffee). So, well done!

I didn't read all of it, but I really did enjoy the parts that I did read. I didn't see any grammar mistakes, which makes me very happy!

I love this idea--not only because it's about coffee--but because it reveals at least what I'm always thinking about at coffee shops and places like Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. I always imagine what the peoples' lives are and who they are and etc, so it's really cool to read a story that basically outlines all my thoughts in places like coffee shops.

Great work. You have a way with words, and that's all you need to know for you to keep writing.

At first the idea doesn't seem very exciting or..."attractive", a collection of short stories about coffee...but the writing is really good; the imagery, emotion, plus I can totally relate "that attractive guy friend who just might be gay" (hilarious yet true) "a place for outcasts until the owner sold it to the rich" (I know how the outcast may have felt) and the terrace, a peaceful quite place that you love even though no one else does (speaking korean huh?), "people change" (true yet sad)...did you get the idea for the 2nd chapter from "Flowers for Algernon"???
