DeBeen Espresso, High Point NC

I noticed the "mention" on this Great little message board. Thanks for the nice comment! Here is a link to our new website... still a lot of work to be done! www.debeenespresso.com. Funny thing I noticed, we have a ghost story author whom frequents our cafe, have you heard of Geordy Buxton? If you haven't, check him out!

New Fan of Coffeehouse starting with Espresso Shot

Just discovered this series and love it. Can't wait to read more. Just finished watching "The Bucket List" and can't believe Kopi Luwak was mentioned in this book. Loved it.

G'day from Downunder

Cleo, I just finished Roast Mortem and absolutely loved it. It was the best in the series. Looking forward to the next installment at the Blend. Denise Australia

Love your books from Canada

Are Canadians included in the coffee give-a-way? My husband and I buy our coffee from a shope in our town called "Ten Thousand Villages" A non-profit organziation that helps coffee growers in third world nations. W just love the shop and their coffee!

Howdy from the 3 Lanes

Just a quick note from Amarillo, TX. Well . . . more like Wildorado, TX now. Yep, we moved but not far. It's only about 20 miles west of Amarillo's city limits. We were visiting with some friends who operate a small restaurant in Bushland, TX ('bout halfway between Amarillo & Wildorada)when the subject of Coffee & Specialty Coffees came up. Well, of course, we had to tell them the best place to learn about coffee and obviously great mysteries with Realistic, Loveable Characters. We gave them your website address as we told them how we got started reading your wonderful books. I'm sure you'll have some new fans! Catherine Lane

Flourless Chocolate Rum Cake-Holiday Grind

Thanks for the response. I did get the recipe from the book and have ordered the newest book already. I typed the recipe without the comments. Will not worry about it in the future and plan to make it again....and again!

Cleo's reply: Glad to hear it. Thank you for coming back and letting me know. :) I hope you enjoy the new book -- and the new recipes, too. Cheers, Margret. Keep in touch!

Cook with joy!

Flourless Chocolate Rum Cake-Holiday Grind


FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE RUM CAKE 
with Warm Coffee-Rum Sauce

I have made this cake twice. The flavor is wondeful and the sauce to die for. The only problem is, even when using the correct size pan...the cake overflows.. Looking forward to trying the new recipes I found on your site.

Margret
from California

 

Hi Margret,

Thank you for your note today. Quick question: How did you get this recipe? Do you have my book HOLIDAY GRIND in which the recipe is published? If you do, please turn to page 348 (step 5). My recipe clearly warns that "In the process of rising, the cake may slosh batter over the sides of the pan. 
To prevent spillage in your oven, simply place a sheet pan on the rack beneath your cake pan."

So there you have it -- the warning is right there in the recipe. The other thing you can do is use an 8 or 9-inch springform pan instead of the 9-inch layer cake pan. NOTE, however, that whenever I have made this cake in a springform pan (instead of the layer cake pan) the results are not as amazing. The cake does not bake up as dense. In my opinion, the fudgy, chocolate flavor  is more concentrated (and in my opinion better) when I use the layer cake pan and that's why I recommend that pan for the recipe. Your choice!

I hope that answers your question. I'm glad you enjoyed the cake and I thank you sincerely for reading my books.

Eat with joy,
~ Cleo

  
Thanks to everyone who has left a
message or question on my board. I will reply to more comments over the next few days. Cheers.

Dear Expresso Guru

No fan fiction this time, but I've purchased a Bialetti Stovetop expresso maker and the difference in taste is incredible. My wife HATES coffee, but I made a latte on the Bialetti, and while she only took a taste, she really liked it! The flavor is completely different, and so much smoother. I also note the natural sweetness that you've mentioned. However, I'm getting mixed inputs on whether or not to tamp the grounds. Can you provide some feedback? Thanks, Conrad Smith Seattle, Wa

Graduation questons

I filled out my application to graduate in December. Please tell me why I had to tell them I was going to graduate and why did I have to pay them $25 for the privilege of filling out the application. Haven't I paid enough for the privilege of attending the university? Sheesh! Nurse JudyMac

Great Reads!

I have never been fond of mystery type books until very recently. The librarian said I just never read the right ones! So, she handed me On What Grounds and then Through the Grinder. On my way home I'm stopping in to pick up Latte Trouble. You have me hooked!!! Great stories (even though I've been wrong so far about who done it (haha))
August 30, 2010

Hooked

I have been an avid reader of mystery and thriller books for many years. I have just discovered the "Coffeehouse Mysteries". I have purchased the first one on Kindle, am half way through, and I am thoroughly hooked. I can't wait to read the remaining 8 books. KathyB

Great Series

Just love your coffee house series. Wish you could write a little faster so I didn't have to wait so long in between books. Thanks!
August 27, 2010

Note to Cleo

Just finished your new book, Roast Mortem. I think it is the best of your coffeehouse mysteries and look forward to the next one coming out soon. Keep up the good work.
August 17, 2010

Great day!

Two weeks ago, I had the joy of receiving by copy of Roast Mortem but was getting ready to go to work when it arrived! Joy of joys, I got a phone call, canceling me that night (it was extra)! I got to curl up on the couch with a fresh brewed cup of coffee (Cleo, I have some suggestions for new coffees below) and read my new book! (Just for the record, while I love audio books for long drives or long walks on my treadmill, I do NOT want a Kindle or any other type of electronic reader. For me, nothing can compare with the weight of a book in my hands, the smell and feel of pages turning under my fingers, and the ability to re-read something without scrolling around looking for it.

I love BOOKS, not just the words inside. There are scents that I have grown up with that give me deep down happy feelings and the smell of books is very close to #1). Cleo, I love Roast Mortem and am in awe of firefighters! Fire scares me silly (early childhood trauma, waking up from a nap outside and seeing the woods nearby on fire) and I salute anyone who can run towards a fire, not away. Now, how about the next book involve nurses and doctors, hmmm? Isn't the Village Blend very close to a hospital? Don't you think that anyone who can clean up multitudes of bodily fluids then eat lunch is pretty brave?

Note I said "brave", not depraved, although that might apply as well. Anyway, on to my new coffees. The first one is from Buf Coffee Mills, owned by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, and is called Remera. I love African coffees and this one is a winner. Lots of deep fruity tones, dense creamy body. I've taken this one to work and we've re-named it "Boyfriend" because it satisfies oh so well! I will call my friends on other units and let them know that there's a "pot of hot Boyfriend" ready and waiting (the way a good boyfriend should be)! (www.gimmeecoffee.com) Another Rwandan coffee is Rwabisindu, also with fruity tones but lighter, softer finish.

At work, we've decided that while it doesn't beat "Boyfriend", it's a definite winner so we've re-named it "Best Man". (www.pt'scoffee.com) Next on the hit parade is an El Salvadoran coffee from Finca Mauritania. I LOVE this coffee! The description on the bag is "intoxicating flavors of butterscotch, pastry, and sweet chocolate", and I can taste a sweet butter end note (I know, it says butterscotch but I taste BUTTER). This may sound weird to some but I find it a fabulous cup of coffee. No, I don't share this one at work, it's MINE! And finally, a microlot from Finca Nueva Armenia, Guatemala called Groto. Again, lovely fruity tones, sweet cocoa finish. BTW all of these coffees are from Bourbon type beans which I have found I like alot, especially orange Bourbon coffee, when I can find it. The last 2 coffees are from www.counterculturecoffee.com I know that medium roasted coffees aren't to everyone's palate but give these a try, I think you'll find that they're pretty darn good!

Cleo's reply: To post soon. Stay tuned...
