Coffee Girl began as a bunch of silly stories and scribbles in a notebook, written on breaks and in-between shifts at one of those big corporate coffee chains in downtown Toronto, for Baristas-Eyes-Only. From the backroom safe it was shared between baristas, cafés and customers and grew into a blog. Now, it's morphed into a full-length novel, Coffee Girl.
Clara Ellasdóttir may seem like just your average barista. But don't be fooled by the black apron and blouse covered in coffee stains. After a childhood frequenting cafés, skipping classes to do coffee runs, and smoking cigarettes in alleyways with celebrities, she's learned that the secret to getting what you want out of life, while keeping everyone else's dirty little secrets, comes down to making that perfect cup of coffee. From behind the counter, to the red carpet, and through cafés around the world, Clara and her coffee girlfriends will take you on their wild adventures, romances and, of course, gossip, good to the last drop.
