Starbucks® Coffee Journal by Moleskine®
Great coffee reference book
This is a great reference book, containing all sorts of valuable coffee information about growing and tasting. There are also several journal sections to track personal tastes, recipes, lists and thoughts. Stylish embossed cover and well-designed journal pages. Perfect size to fit in my handbag or backpack.

Good idea, but...
I adore the cover. Could this be incorporated with an academic or standard year 2-page per week diary? It seems more organization is requested, either a straight coffee diary or a traditional diary with an unstructured daily space for appointments. I'd love to see this in Starbucks causal fonts.

A bit misleading...
Like all Moleskine products this is a beautiful notebook and had I been looking for a notebook that was a coffee journal, food recipe book, drink recipe book, shop & bar log, and collection log then this would be a five star product but I was looking for a straight coffee journal - I saw on the description page that it included these other sections but something that is labeled as a coffee journal you really expect the bulk of it to be just that...this is not the case with this notebook.
Only 38 pages of the 234 numbered pages in the notebook are coffee tasting note pages the rest are recipe, shop notes, and collection notes.
They do however allow you to download templates of the tasting notes section that you can print at home and add to the notebook but having a notebook that is filed with loose kind of defeats my purpose of buying the coffee journal.
Overall it is a nice notebook - I just wish it would have been more coffee tasting journal and less everything else.

Thanks for another great idea!
I LOVE this journal! I am one of those people that has an addiction for organizing and anything that helps me do this. This journal is a great reason to write about my passion for Starbucks and their coffee. It has lots of room to put down thoughts and ideas. The Moleskin cover is wonderful also. Will wear beautifully.
What a great idea! Thanks Starbucks!

For Memories Based in Coffee
After spending lots of time tasting coffees and sharing the experience with others, I wanted to better remember the moments. I have always used a tasting guide as a barista, but this takes the tasting notes to the next level, along with having many other things to notate such as food. The indexing in the back also makes this book something that will allow me to go back and reflect on the coffees that I try at a later time with great ease. If you're looking to take your coffee tasting to the next level, this journal will help take it there.
