12 Cups of Coffee

Making Sense of Life, One Coffee at a Time

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Jamie has got it made. A great apartment, an excellent job flying all over the world selling something he would rather not talk about - accounting software. When he comes home to Seattle, the love of his life is waiting for him - a mint condition 1972 Faema one group espresso machine. Jamie loves coffee. Good coffee. Really good coffee. Oh, and he lives with a great girl named Ellen who loves him for exactly who he is. 

Except Jamie is rarely who he says he is.

Jamie gives everyone in his life exactly what they want to see - Sensitive Boyfriend, Caring Son, Crazy Friend, Brilliant Salesguy - but only lets the real Jamie out over coffee with strangers‚ who he will never see again.

The only trouble is as Jamie tries to make sense of his life, one espresso at a time, everyone else seems to be getting on with theirs.

Funny and fearlessly self-reflective, the book perks along and makes readers thirsty for more.

12 Cups of Coffee

What a great book! Anyone who has been in sales will relate with the hectic rat race! Heck anyone who needed a coffee to make it through the day will relate! It was also great to follow the main character, Jamie, as he was living his dream life (or so he thought). Grab this book and grab a coffee and enjoy! It is well worth it!

12 cups of coffee

I love how we get to know the 'real' Jamie through his conversations around the world over coffee. He is such a likeable character that is so easy to relate to as he tries hard to be what he thinks others expect him to be, and is only ever able to really be himself with strangers over coffee. He gets himself into so many predicaments by trying to be what he's not....
I loved watching his character unfold, both through all his foibles and also through his genuine revealing over coffee.... until he finally starts to really discover who he really is.
Really enjoyed this novel.

12 Cups of Coffee

12 Cups was a perfect book for me when I received it. I experienced it as about purpose, both Jamie's and mine. He has the life of Ryan (Up in the Air) then stuff happens. His quest is neatly highlighted by the cumulative wisdom of coffee events over his life that set up his realization. A great book for those looking for their own meaning as an exemplar, if not for the rules. Good read.
