(Both recipes are included in Through the Grinder.)

If you are a reader of my Coffeehouse Mysteries, you might recall the subject of Norwegian Egg Coffee coming up at the start of Billionaire Blend when coffee shop manager Clare Cosi describes the method as "cowboy coffee with an egg broken into it."

This basic method of making coffee is known by other names, as well: Swedish Egg Coffee, Finnish Egg Coffee, Hungarian Egg Coffee, and (of course) Lutheran Church Basement Egg Coffee. In this post, I'll show you what I consider the best way to get the tastiest results.

Of course, in Italian culture, cookies aren’t just eaten at special occasions. Pizzelles, sesame cookies (see my recipe in Decaffeinated Corpse), pignolis, amaretti, biscotti (see my recipe in Latte Trouble), and many other kinds are enjoyed at all hours of the day: at breakfast with cappuccinos, in the afternoon with an espresso pick-me-up, or after dinner on an elegant dessert dish...
