Coffee and culture: a perfect combination
A new and creative collaboration was born, unprecedented: we offer the union between the moment of reading, a moment of tasting the beloved black drink, to satisfy all the senses in a synaesthetic experience!
Some time ago I was contacted by the Milanese publishing house Another Coffee Stories for a project that immediately thrilled me a lot: combining coffee and culture.
They asked me if we had a way to combine some coffees with the releases of their books and immediately my head started to grind ideas.
We have always described, both in our cafè in Milan and on the caffeernani.com website, all of our coffees not only through their technical specs, but also through the identification of the right moment to taste them.
As you well know, each coffee has a well-defined and unique aromatic and taste profile, which can bring to mind memories or make you feel different emotions.
There are coffees that are more defined and unbalanced, others softer and more round. Some have a wider aromatic range, highlighting different sensations from time to time, while others are more focused on few but very intense fragrances.
So why not combine each book with a specific coffee?
In fact, each book transmits different experiences, more or less romantic, dynamic, hard, raw, adventurous and so on.
Hence the idea of creating a synaesthetic experience, that is, perceiving multiple sensations together, stimulating sight and taste at the same time.
So with each book of the Another Coffee Stories editions purchased, you will receive a blend of Caffè Ernani expertly combined with the work. All in order to underline and embellish the peculiarities of each element and create a unique experience.
Are you a little curious?
You can view the combinations on the Another Coffee Stories website >>
The publishing house
The publishing house was born on 4 December 2020 as a laboratory of ideas for a new publishing industry, which aims to escape from the usual logic of the sector to give voice to innovative and stimulating proposals. A young and open project, which puts the author and his work in the foreground.
In fact, the publishing house wants to build a fairer publishing, which can offer authors the best possible recognition for their work. This is why it opposes the concept of "paid publishing" and tries to give voice to the most innovative and stimulating proposals.
Another Coffee Stories undertakes to accompany the writers from the creation phase to the distribution phase, putting in place an innovative and creative promotion plan.
The publishing house's project embraces all literary genres: from fiction to poetry to non-fiction, passing from graphic novels, from photography to comics.
One of the peculiarities of Another Coffee Stories are the covers sewn on the author and the novel, entirely handmade by the illustrators of the team and the magnificent characters of Zibbies, entirely handmade woolen puppets, inspired by the characters of the books.

"I want to become a book boss who helps animals"
This I said I wanted to become as a child, so much so that I wrote it in my first Italian assignment in elementary school. I was certainly a bit confused about how the world went, but I was very clear about the two things I loved right from the start: books and animals ... a little later the coffee arrived!
I hope this project excites you as much as it excites me!
