How long does it take to get a cup of coffee from your local Starbucks?
This is not a trick question.
From standing in the queue to getting your steaming espresso – 2 minutes, tops?
How long does it take to order and print a book?
2 days? An hour?
If the newest Time Magazine’s “Invention of the Year” is anything to go by, then you can have your book ordered and printed in less than 1 minute!
If your reaction right now is one of total amazement, you are not alone! I felt the same way when I saw that Outskirts Press were offering access to the Espesso Book Machine (EBM), an option that will make your book available from multiple sales channels within record time.
What is Espresso Book Machine (EBM)?
Put simply, the EBM is an automated book-making machine. The operator selects a title to print, and within a few minutes a book emerges, with a full-color cover, trimmed to an exact size, and indistinguishable from the publisher version.
At present, the EBM is the only unique digital-to-print retail solution on the market. The content of these books is fed to the machine via EspressNet, On Demand Books’ growing digital network, consisting of over seven million titles. The benefits of EBM (if you haven’t already figured them out), include:
- Made to order books, printed and compiled within minutes.
- Increased points of sale, available at numerous EBM locations.
- Increased exposure within the publishing industry.

One thought on “Would You Like a Book to Go With The Coffee?”
It seems a clever idea but I don’t know how wide a market it will appeal to. The digital downloads are selling like hotcakes and their are more Kindles and Nooks on the way.
It will appeal to that niche market that wants a hard copy in their hand. And I don’t think they will ever disappear.
If you can get to the right crowd it will do well. Perhaps in a library, in the waiting rooms of hospitals, or airport terminals.
