coffee machines

what are your thoughts on coffee pods and coffee machines such as the Keurig? is it possible to get a good cup of coffee from a pod?

Cleo's reply: The convenience of single-brew pod machines is loved by many and very popular. It's really a matter of convenience, and you do pay for it (the cost of buying pod-coffee is 2 to 9 times more expensive than buying it by the pound). Pre-ground coffee can also go stale very quickly and not be a "great" cup by anyone's definition. Enjoy it if you like it and appreciate the convenience. However, if you're looking for the best cup of coffee (and a more economoical way of making and drinking it), buy freshly roated whole bean coffee from a reliable roaster (someone who sources beans well and roasts them often), grind them yourself at home, and brew them in a manner that you like best (whether that is auto-drip, pour-over, French press, or espresso). If it all seems too much, then visit a coffeehouse like the Village Blend and have an expert make your a delicious cup. That's why Clare is in business, LOL!

Reading order

Do I need to read them in a certain order to understand the books? I’m really interested in them but only have Dead Cold Brew and Dead to the Last Drop.

Cleo's reply:

Hello! In answer to your query, you don't need to read the Coffeehouse Mysteries in order to understand what's happening. I always make sure our characters are introduced with enough background so that new readers are not lost.

And if you like DEAD COLD BREW and DEAD TO THE LAST DROP, you can go back to the beginning of the series to see how it all began and read more about the backgrounds of our characters. Both of the books you have are exciting and timely reads (because of the subject matter), and I hope you enjoy them enough to continue reading more of our popular series. 
 

 

Wishing you java joy...

Recipe Book Please!!

Look forward to each book with as much anticipation as waiting for a recipe of yours to finish baking. I am so thankful for you both...you have provided so many hours of pure enjoyment and are so generous with recipes. But I still have trouble keeping track of them all. I just know I am not the only one whining about this. Thank-you!

 

Cleo's reply:

Thank YOU for the nice words! Marc and I sincerely hope you'll keep reading...and keep in touch.

Brewed Awakening

I just borrowed the book from Stapleton SI NY library and went right to the recipe section (being a fan of the series). Hope it's only my copy but this book is missing two pages, goes from page 332 to page 335 (jumps from the beginning of 'Candied Pecans' to instructions for a chicken dish.

Cleo's reply:

I'm sorry to tell you that someone removed the pages from your library's copy of Brewed Awakening. Our book is not missing any pages. Someone who borrowed the book before you removed those pages, most likley to keep a particular recipe. And I know exactly which recipe was on those pages. It's a very good (and rare) one!

     Over the years, I've heard from readers about this happening every so often. Recipe pages are removed from our Coffeehouse Mystery library copies and kept by patrons who've borrowed the book. I don't know whether or not they realize that they are defacing the book and ruining the experience for readers who borrow it after them. It's a shame.

     This also sometimes happens when readers buy a "used" book. (Buyers beware. You may be saving a few dollars when you buy used Coffeehouse Mysteries, but you may not always be getting a complete recipe section.)

     Again, I know this because we hear from readers who complain about this issue, but there is nothing we can do. 

     If I were you, I would report the missing pages to the library staff. Perhaps they can replace the book and/or try to find out who (before you) on the lending list defaced the book. I hope that helps!

New to Coffee

Hello!

I sure hope you can help me! After reading your Coffeehouse books, I would love to try drinking (good) coffee. I've tried before, but the only way I could stand coffee was to put so much stuff in it that it wouldn't even taste like coffee. After reading your books, you seem like a true expert. Is there some coffee you would suggest I try? I don't eat sugar or dairy, so would love to try it 'plain'. Thanks in advance!

 

 

ON WHAT GROUNDS
Book #1 in Cleo Coyle's 
long-running series of
Coffeehouse Mysteries

To learn more,

>>>

 

Cleo's reply -

Hello back! I'm so glad you are enjoying our Coffeehouse Mysteries. Coffeehouse culture is a specific culture that my husband and I researched well before we wrote our very first Coffeehouse Mystery ON WHAT GROUNDS.

     We continue to research the developments in the coffee business and celebrate the passionate people who work in it. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed that basic background aspect of the coffee trade. (And there are, of course, many more aspects to our Coffeehouse books, especially with a primary cast that includes three generations of women and a supporting cast of hard-working NYPD officers and detectives who frequent the Village Blend, no surprise since cops practically live on coffee.)

    As for your request, I cannot turn you into a happy coffee drinker simply by suggesting that you buy a certain coffee: e.g. Rwandan, Kona, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe or Sulawesi (<< click the link), which are all excellent coffees if roasted and brewed properly. There are also many excellent blends that are hand-crafted by master roasters, like the Billionaire's Blend (<< click the link) from One Good Woman Fine Coffees and Teas.

     Many people around the world consider coffee to be an intangible but important aspect of their culture. But it's not for everyone. Some people like dark roasts while others despise them and prefer lighter roasts. You would need to experiment to find what you prefer. You would also need to properly (burr) grind the freshly roasted whole beans for the particular method of brewing that you choose, and you would need to have the proper equipment to brew it. All of this will cost you money and these techniques will take time to learn. We like what we like. Here's what I can suggest for you (and it's the reason people like Clare are in business)!

    Find a local coffeehouse that appears to be popular. Review their menu and try a few drinks from it. Most coffeehouses have alternatives to dairy (such as soy or almond or coconut milk) and I would suggest you try a plain latte using one of those alternatives. With lattes, the milk is steamed and the steaming brings out the sweetness, so you probably don't need sugar. However, if you consume sweet things often (fruits or honey), then you will probably need to have some kind of sweetener added in there to make the drink taste good to you. 

    People in the coffee trade (and millions of others who don't make it their profession) enjoy the smell, taste, and experience of this beverage, which is beloved worldwide. But it's not for everyone, so don't feel pressured to like it yourselfRemember, most people wouldn't drink cocoa (hot chocolate) without dairy and sweetener mixed into it. The coffee bean is not unlike the cocoa bean. You can think of it that way, if you like. You don't have to drink coffee black if you don't enjoy it that way.

     We have many happy readers who do not drink or even like coffee, but they tell us they absolutely love reading our Coffeehouse Mysteries all the same, and that's a good thing indeed. Don't forget that coffeehouses, Clare's included, also serve tea, cocoa, steamers, and other beverages. The coming together of the cast and the warm, cozy atmosphere of the setting is what's most important to these readers. And it makes us happy to know that our fictional world is a place they want to live. For a little while, anyway. 

May you drink (and read) with joy!

Made my day!


Hello, I was going to ask if there would be a #7 in the Haunted Bookshop Mystery series but wanted to read what other fans had been asking. Thank goodness I did!!!! I’m so happy to hear that there WILL BE a #7.

This truly made my day!

Thank you,
Bonnie

 

 

Cleo's reply - 

Thank you, Bonnie, for the lovely note. And, yes, our 7th Haunted Bookshop Mystery (title to be revealed) is coming in 2020, and I'm happy that *you're* happy!

     (For anyone who'd like to keep in touch with us, so you won't miss the latest news on our upcoming books, click here to subscribe to our Cleo Coyle Newsletter.)

     Bonnie, enthusiastic readers like you have inspired us to keep writing the characters we love so much. We even dedicated our 6th book, The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller, to our long-suffering readers, who waited nearly ten years for the series to return after a hitatus.

     For anyone who'd like to know more about the origins of the Haunted Bookshop Mysteries, why we took a break from writing them, and why we recently decided to make our ghost "reappear," you are welcome to read our Criminal Element feature article by clicking here.

     My warmest wishes to you for the happy note, Bonnie. If you are on Facebook, be sure to friend or follow Jack (our ghost PI). To see his Facebook page, click here or on Jack's fedora above. 

     In closing, Jack and Pen (and I) hope you'll keep reading...and keep in touch!

Haunted Bookshop Mystery series

I've just read the entire series and, as a fledgling romance writer with one indie book published, I would love to see Pen and Jack hook up... (text deleted)

 

 

Cleo's reply:

Thank you kindly for caring enough about our characters to imagine a future for them. Years ago, my husband and I discussed that same scenario as a possibility. It's a logical dramatic narrative line, of course, but we rejected it for many reasons, and we doubt anything like it will come about for the series (which is why we edited your comment). Apologies for that, but we don't want fans assuming that the future for our characters will be taking that course.

Nevertheless, we thank you sincerely for reading our work and taking the time and trouble to let us know you enjoyed it enough to offer us ideas for the future of Jack and Pen. Cheers to you, we both wish you great good luck in your own writing career!

Just finished Shot in the Dark...

Just finished Shot in the Dark. I enjoyed it (as well as all of the others in the series). In addition to the multilayered plots and character development, as a native Brooklynite transplanted to New England, I appreciate the references to landmarks of my childhood. Thanks also for the shout out to Stony Brook, my Alma Mater. Looking forward to Brewed Awakening.

Thank you sincerely for taking the time and trouble to stop by our message board and share your thoughts. (Stony Brook has a beautiful campus. Marc and I went to other schools, but we loved visiting SB.)

     I'm delighted to know that our Coffeehouse Mysteries bring back good memories for you. New York is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, from people and settings to culinary *and* criminal activity. My husband and I will never tire of setting our stories where we live (literally and metaphorically). 

     Thanks again and we hope you enjoy Brewed Awakening. It's quite a unique entry for the series, and we're excited to get it into the hands of readers. We hope you'll keep in touch and let us know what you think of the upcoming release. Till then, be well...


Wishing you java joy!

 ~ Cleo

Cold brew location requirements

I am looking to start my own cold brew business and all the regulations online are not black and white more grey. The question is: what regulations must a building meet in order to manufacture cold brew coffee from?

Cleo's reply: That would depend on your state and local laws. You need to consult an attorney who can properly advise you. It's wise not to cut corners were the law is concerned on starting a business, especially one that involves consumable products. Good luck!
