Inspired by a photograph handed to him by his father, Shawn Neer embarks on a trip across Italy
in search of the the country's best coffee...and best mountain bike trails.

Café Americano is a fictional tale following mountain biker Shawn Neer as he travels across Italy
in a 1980s sports car searching for the scene from a photograph that his father gave to him as a
young boy. Along the way he encounters broken down cars, coffee-infused hallucinations and the
best mountain biking that Italy has to offer. Café Americano is a fun, edge-of-your-saddle story
that's filled with charm, beauty and enough espressos to blow your doors off!
