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...

HI CLEOLIFE IS NOT FAIR.YOUR READERS OVER THERE HAVE GOT AND READ ROAST MORTEM. WHILE WE CANT GET IT YET OVER HERE. BE A GOOD GIRL AND CHASE IT UP FOR US. TAKE CARE. ANONYMOUS
Ahhh....that was delicious!Roast Mortem was like a chocolate truffle after a hard day: Rich, satisfying--and gone much too fast! I'm craving more. This one was delightfully rich with the addition of very real firefighters. I've known some very well, and I could put faces on all the ones you introduced. The thing that always surprises me is that they never think they're heroes. But I have to say--I always look forward to another visit--and escapade with--Madame! She's what I want to be when I grow up. :)
Cappuccino Cheese Cake
Going through all my Canadian Living magazines that span about 2.5 years and I found a cappuccino cheese cake recipe. I can send that one too if you like. :-) Chelle
Coffee-Crusted Top sirloinHi Cleo been awhile since I've been on here. Are you on Facebook by anychance? Anyway I was at safeway the otherday and picked up a bunch of those free recipe cards they have in the meat and produce sections and I found one for something called coffee crusted top sirloin, would you like me to scan it and email it to you? I just finished re reading all the Jack and Pen books again over the last week. It had been awhile and as I have something like 180 mysteries on my shelves I couldn't remember who done any of the murders. I could remember bits and pieces of the stories though. My boyfriend is beginning to get me drinking coffee now too, but still not often and I have to load it up with cream and sugar. I want to try out some of those Toriano (I think the brand name is) coffee flavourings and see if I like it that way. Love the Iced Coffees though mmmmmmm! my bf treated me to a french vanilla iced mocha at Tim Hortons the other day, I don't usually care for vanilla flavoured things but the french vanilla? OMG!!! swoooooon! Looking forward to viseting with Cleo, Mike,Pen and Jack soon. HAHAHA! did I say Cleo? that was Claire, guess I think of them as the same person :-) I was reading an interview the other day of one of my other favorite Authors and she was buying apples to try out a recipe for one of her books and caught herself turning to ask Hannah (the main character of her books) what type of apple to buy, do you ever do that with Claire and coffees? They sure seem real to me sometimes. The other night I was asleep in my bed and I had left the fan on because it's really hot here right now. Partway through the night I felt a cold breeze brush my face lol and woke myself up saying "Jack! is that you" lol no answer so I guess it was just my fan lol shook my head at myself and went back to sleep. Sending a big hug your way for keeping my book habit going. "My name is Chelle from Canada and I'm a book addict" lol
