The Espressologist

The Espressologist

My friend Naho Ogawa illustrated the Japanese version of “The Espressologist”, a novel for young adults. The story is about a high school girl who works as a barista in a Chicago coffee shop. She determines the customer’s personality type based on the drink they order, and then searches for an appropriate partner for them, it’s a sweet love story. All sorts of drinks appear in the story, it makes you want to have a cup of coffee.

Naho said she found the author on facebook and suddenly decided to send her a message. The Japanese translation and Naho’s illustrations fit together well, it’s a very cute book.
