At the Village Blend, Clare Cosi's best baristas may refer to a decaffeinated espresso as a "why bother?" but Clare knows a good percentage of her customers prefer the neutered brew.

This is becoming a great cozy mystery series!
Excellent Mix of Mystery, Coffee History, and Prep
Recommended to anyone that likes or loves coffee. Love the mix of coffee history and coffee preparation methods and secrets.
Constantly wondering what was going to happen next. Many twists and turns and never quite clear how things might or even could end.
Excellent voices that helped identify characters and build suspense. Ms Gibel made you relate directly with the characters and I found myself wanting to talk out loud to the characters to warn them about what might happen next.
Yes, definitely! Very hard to pause for even a moment. Didn't even watch the news on TV until the book was finished.
Love the series and can't wait until the rest of the books in the series are recorded. Will be on the lookout for more from the author and also more from the narrator.
