My Two
Coffee Prizes

 

 


New
Coffee Pick!

My 1st premium coffee prize 
is a package of 
Billionaire's Blend
(pictured).

Holly O'Connorowner of One Good Woman gourmet Coffee and Tea shop asked her coffee roaster to create this very special blend to serve at a book-signing appearance of author Cleo Coyle (the married couple Alice and Marc). The Billionaire's Blend was so popular at the signing that she now sellls the blend in her shop.

This is a hand-crafted blend of smooth, dark, rich Sumatra, reminiscent of the exotic journey that coffee hunter Matt Allegro takes in Cleo Coyle's Coffeehouse Mystery Billionaire BlendThe roaster decided to blend the Sumatra with an Ethiopian Sidamo, one of the best coffees on the planet, giving a suprising, bright splash of fruitiness, evoking those sparkling fruit-splashed cocktails enjoyed by billionaires at posh resorts and exclusive clubs around the world. The result is an outstanding coffee.

Holly has the same generous spirit, hard-working character, and can-do guts of Clare Cosi. She started her gourmet coffee, tea, and gift business from a coffee truck and now has 18 employees in her successful and beloved Pennsylvania shop,celebrating nearly 20 years in business.

coffee for yourself!

To order Billionaire Blend,

simply call the phone number on
their website and chat
with one of their friendly staff.

 

My 2nd coffee prize is 
Actor Hugh Jackman's 
favorite coffee: Laughing Man.
 

Pictured above is Hugh Jackman, enjoying a cup. 
Hugh co-founded Laughing Man Coffee out of his 
desire to help  coffee farmers in the developing world.  
All of his profits go to charity.

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to
force people who have a genuine medical
need for coffee to wait  in line
behind people who apparently view it as
some kind of 
recreational activity. 

I bet this kind of thing does not happen to 
heroin addicts. I bet that
when serious heroin addicts go to purchase
their heroin, they do not tolerate
waiting in line while some
dilettante in front of them
orders a hazelnut smack-a-chino
with cinnamon sprinkles!

A Note for
Book Collectors...

For the first time, the publisher has added
a foiled and embossed detail on the hardcover's
first edition printing. Look for it beneath
the book jacket. It's beautiful, but future
printings may not have this detail, so don't
delay in geting this first edition.

amazing cup.

"Jingle bells, beautiful displays,
scrumptious treats: Holiday season
in New York City has it all,
including murder. Coyle’s coffeehouse
series captures the New York experience,
from high-society parties to gritty
back-street deals. The fine mystery is
followed by some holiday recipes that
will even pack the pounds on readers
who are onl
y browsing them."

"The food, the snow, and the likeable
characters are as delightful as
Nat King Cole crooning
'The Christmas Song.' If you’re
a sucker for all things Christmas,
this book is for you."

184 Blend


My latest "Coffee Pick" is named after
the address of the Laughing Man Coffee
shop in New York City (184 Duane Street),
which is not far from my fictional Village Blend!

The shop and company were co-founded by
actor Hugh Jackman, who strongly believes
in helping coffee farmers
of the developing world. The profits go to
charity. (Great video here.)

This blend is Latin American in origin 
(top-quality beans from Colombia and Peru). 

The taste is bright and crisp with hints of fruit,
floral, and chocolate. In my opinion,
this an outstanding cup. The brigthness
of these freshly roasted beans will wake
your palate with joy!

coffee for yourself,

The note below was re-posted
from Cleo's e-mail box at
CoffeehouseMystery (at) gmail.com

 

Hello
Village Blend staff,
   

I am running a small coffee shop in Hiroshima, Japan. I read the Coffeehouse Mysteries in Japanese. They were fun to know about coffee...

 

From far Japan
~Masako

  

Above is a photo of Masako's coffee shop in Hiroshima, Japan. Below is Masako posing with two of her baristas, who were University students at the time the photo was taken.


Cleo's reply:  

Hello, Masako!

I am so happy that you wrote to me "from far Japan," and I am even more excited to learn that you are running your own coffeehouse, just like my Clare Cosi.
     For my readers here in America, I have posted some of the Japanese versions of my books that you are reading and enjoying. I am so proud of these beautiful, little Japanese editions of my books. The interiors are fantastic, too, and even include illustrations.

     Thank you again for writing, Masako. Please keep in touch. Send a photo of you and your coffee shop and I will post it for everyone to see.

Warmest java wishes,

~Cleo Coyle
"from far" New York City!
