While I do drink coffee on a regular basis, it made me appreciate it more, and learn some new things along the way :)

Useful 101 on recognizing and ordering different types of drinks and knowing what to look for when picking up beans at the store.
First and foremost, I appreciated the video of how to pull an espresso shot. The history was nice, and he summed up a few hours of wiki searching into some easy blurbs (about the beans, etc.). The graphics aren't top notch, but the video is still helpful and a great start before you start googling random terms on how/what/where of coffee
