I really enjoy your books and recipes. However, you have created a monster! ;-) I found a micro roaster in my area, so I'm trying many varieties of coffee delivered to my front door monthly! Recently I purchased a French Press. Now I want to buy a burr grinder. Which style do you recommend? (My grinder is too small!) Appreciate your help! Keep those books coming. Kathy
Hi, Kathy - Thank you for the lovely words about my books and recipes, and I'm grinning at your newfound enthusiasm over discovering the world of truly good coffee.
My husband and I use a small Cuisinart burr grinder that works for our budget. We've found it reliable and are happy with it. Others have given it mixed reviews. Buy at your own risk. You can see it by clicking here. If you are looking for something two or three times the size (and price), give this expert coffee site a try by clicking here.
I hope that helps you. Thanks again for your kind support of my work, and may you always...
Drink with joy,
Can't wait for next book!Love Love Love! Can't wait for your next book! Thanks for making these books! Also thanks for making books that my children can listen to. Melissa
Note to CleoI LOVE your books!being in New England we had the blizzard of 2013 and coffee is always warming..tried out some of your recipes in Roast Mortem! maybe a cookbook soon?? Carol :)
Another Sweet 16Hi, You were kind enough to send a wonderful message to my daughter Olivia on the occasion of her 16th birthday a few yeasr ago. I put it in the scrapbook i made for her and that treasured scrapbook is one of the possessions she wants to take to college with her in the fall!! I now have a second daughter who turned 16 on January 9th. Her name is Abby and I am hoping you will send her a birthday message that I can put in her sweet 16 scrapbook!! ( I only have 1 more after this :) !! Thank you so much!!

I have looked online everywhere I can think for this recipe from A Brew to Kill but can't find it. Where is it hiding?
Cleo's quickie reply - the recipe is finished and delicious and will be posted to my website this month! I hope you enjoy it. ~ Cleo
Fun BooksI thoroughly enjoy your books--and drink more coffee when reading them--your recipies are fun and easy to follow. Keep up the good work. Happy belated birthday./Cheryl
We're both Groundhogs?Not only do I love your books, and we share a fondness for coffee -- but apparently we also share a birthday! Was your yesterday, Feb. 2? That's mine, too! Belated Happy Birthday to you! From your "twin" in the Seattle area, Colleen
Belated Happy Birthday!I'm reading Holiday Buzz (Again!) because it's a good story and I'm liking the recipes. Please, when will you post the 8 napkin Patty Melt recipe? The way you described it sounds wonderful! (And I'm going to bake the New York Cheesecake cookies for our next office party.) Jenny
Happy Birthday, Alice!Thank you for bringing so many hours of joy to so many fans! And for all the fun new recipes to try! Enjoy your day!!
Happy Birthday Alice/Cleo!Here's to many more birthdays! Thank you so much for your books and recipes. I love to watch for new recipes on your websites.
Finally was able to read Holiday Buzz!
Great story, I loved the Real Housewives element. And I'm finding I'm getting the Coffeehouse mysteries for the recipes as much as the mystery stories! Happy Birthday!
note to cleoHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALICE HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY TAKE CARE A2
Note to CleoI live part of the year in a small coffee growing community in rural southern Costa Rica. I love your books and have enjoyed watching coffee grow here, being harvested, going to the washing process and to the toasting shop. If you ever want to put something about coffee growing, drinking, etc in Costa Rica, let me know. I have a small house in the mountains an house north of Panama. Thanks for the wonderful books! Becky
Note to CleoI love your books! I'm currently starting #6. My husband and I own 2 coffee houses ( one in Cambridge, Ma. And one in NH). I also love to bake. I don't work in the coffeehouse ( I have a different job)- but I'm currently working on revamping our muffins. I always end up brewing more coffe when I'm reading one of your books! Thanks for writing them! Pam

Follow up on übe recipe request
I have been patiently waiting for the übe cake recipe you said would be available from your book, A Brew to a Kill...Could you please share it with us. Thanks very much..

Cozy Mystery of the Year
Cleo's reply - Well, we're certainly getting closer now because I've finally located and purchased the ube and the macapuno, and I'll be making the cake soon. It's a beautiful cake, and I'm looking forward to sharing the recipe, as well as places to special order the ingredients. (You will not find the key ingredients for this exotic cake in a local grocery store. You will need to special order them online.) In the meantime, as a gift to my readers, I did share an easy recipe last month for Blue Velvet Cupcakes, which were also mentioned in A Brew to a Kill as being inspired by the ube cake. See the link below at my new blog - CleoCoyleRecipes.com. That ube cake recipe is coming soon, along with many new, delicious recipes inspired by the culinary adventures of Clare and Co. I hope they'll be worth the wait.
Thanks for your patience,
Happy New Year, and God bless you!
