Cozy Monsoon Reads: Delightful Books, Warm Coffee & Rainy Days

Coffee and books form a timeless duo - an inanimate love story that Shakespeare himself could have penned. It's a match made in heaven, like pasta and wine, or macaroni and cheese.

As heavy monsoon showers make you stay home, all you need is warm coffee, your favourite books, and a blanket to snuggle into as you escape into your imagination. No matter what your monsoon mood demands, we’ve got some invigorating book genres and Coffeeza coffee pairings for book lovers and coffee addicts alike!

Cozy Classics & Latte

- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

A classic latte pairs perfectly with an uber classic novel, such as Pride and Prejudice. Our Hazelnut flavoured coffee capsules and the Finero Next and Frothimo machine combo are all you need to brew a perfect ‘book café’ style latte. With each sip, travel back to the 18th century, where the braveheart Elizabeth Bennett and her sisters dwindled under societal pressures in England. The book is sure to leave you wanting another cup as your mind wraps around the after-thoughts of this classic.  

Chilly Thrillers & Hot Chocolate

-  The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

This classic chocolatey and rich beverage needs a book pairing that is equally luxurious and sassy. The dazzling tale of Jay Gatsby and his extraordinary parties thrown in the hopes of rekindling a lost love is the perfect match for a creamy and stimulating hot chocolate on a rainy afternoon. Lavish parties and grand romantic gestures meet their match with this decadent and comforting beverage. Brew the most indulgent hot chocolate by throwing in some cocoa powder and milk into the frothimo, and let it whip up a smooth, rich, and creamy hot chocolate. Garnish it with marshmallows or chopped nuts, as you dive into the chilling thrills of "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Controversial Dramas & Affogato

- Normal People by Sally Rooney

Just like the bittersweet affogato, ‘Normal People’ is an exceptionally bittersweet story about the harsh realities of love and relationships over the years. Marianne and Connell’s complex relationship begins in their teenage years and follows the pair as they weave in and out of each other's lives into adulthood. Beautifully honest and endearing, all in one, this novel is certainly one to take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Delve into this drama with a delicious affogato made with a simple scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped off with a strong shot of espresso brewed with our Forte blend, and finished with rum soaked raisins on top. Sip on it and enjoy as your mind flips through the unnerving drama of Normal People.

Fantasy Romance & Cappuccino

- The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene

If you’re someone who enjoys the sweet-dreamy vibes of young love and the motivation to tick off your bucket list, a spiced and frothy cappuccino will compliment you perfectly. You’ll be hooked on these lovable characters by the time you’re licking the cappuccino froth off your spoon. Imagine the warmth of Augustus and the wit of Hazel Grace Lancaster, all rolled into one delightful, warm, funny, and totally endearing novel about dreams—the ones we have and the ones we want—and the stories we tell ourselves about them. The warmth of a steamy cappuccino brewed with our sweet Caramel flavoured pods is surely a soothing hug one would need as the book draws to a nostalgic climax. Add a dash of cinnamon on the top to elevate the sweet caramel notes.

Tragic Non-fiction & Macchiato

- Sixty Seconds by Jesse Blackadder

You will want to spend more than sixty seconds at a time with this powerful, heart-breaking novel based on the author’s own family experiences. A warm cup of macchiato brewed with our specialty coffee, Mysore Nuggets, should be your comforting couch to fall back on as ‘The Brennans’ move from frigid Hobart to subtropical Murwillumbah, consisting of parents Finn and Bridget and their kids Jarrah and Toby. A catastrophe unlike any other strikes one morning while the family is still getting used to work, school, and a new way of life in a place of sun and waves. The redemptive, eerie non-fiction narrative Sixty Seconds is about forgiveness and optimism, which we’d recommend pairing with a strong macchiato.

Humorous Comedy & Mocha

- How Hard Can It Be? by Allison Pearson

This delightfully witty and big-hearted novel by Allison Pearson is a cup of decadent Mocha personified. The protagonist, Kate Reddy puts on a pessimistic cloak as she starts counting down the days until she is fifty. And with mood swings that have her in shackles, teenage children who need her there but won’t communicate, and ailing parents who aren’t coping, every day is a Monday crisis for Kate. Sip on a chocolatey mocha brewed with our Intenso coffee pods as you enjoy the humour and drama that follows Kate who’s in the middle of a sandwich that she isn’t even allowed to eat because of the calories. This “coming of age drama” is a reminder to enjoy the mocha of life with all its ups and downs and cherish the tiny joys of chocolate sprinkles while you’re at it. 


Breaktimes will never be the same once you’ve experienced the trio of monsoons, Coffeeza, and books. Whether it's a bitter, fruity, spicy, or sweet notes our blends will enrich the joys of reading. So, brew that coffee, grab your favourite read's and allow the delightful combination to transport you to a realm of blissful and unhurried contemplation this monsoon season. Happy reading!!
