About the book

image3.8/5.0

What would you change if you could go back in time? In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time. In Before the Coffee Gets Cold, we meet four visitors, each of whom is hoping to make use of the café?s time-travelling offer, in order to: confront the man who left them, receive a letter from their husband whose memory has been taken by early onset Alzheimer's, to see their sister one last time, and to meet the daughter they never got the chance to know. But the journey into the past does not come without risks: customers must sit in a particular seat, they cannot leave the café, and finally, they must return to the present before the coffee gets cold ... Toshikazu Kawaguchi?s beautiful, moving story ? translated from Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot ? explores the age-old question: what would you change if you could travel back in time? More importantly, who would you want to meet, maybe for one last time?

This was such a moving book. I can't express in words how much I enjoyed reading about these characters and their struggles. The concept behind this cafe is so fascinating and heartwarming and I'm happy I gave this a chance.

This was so beautiful and I loved it! It is such a cool premise and sums up the genre of magical realism. I loved each of the stories and adored the message of them. Just a beautiful exploration of love, grief, and regret. Also the characters were very fun!

This book was so perfect and cosy I wanted to give it a massive hug once I finished. I loved each characters story and it made me think about what I would do if I could go back in time.

I’m absolutely in love with this book, the concept, the dynamic, the characters, the love. It felt so real. I felt like I had a friendship with all of them. There were so many rules but I annotated them all! I really enjoyed how it was divided into chapters, & that everyone made different decisions for different reasons. It’s so good! & really short. Definitely could read it in one sitting.
