    Description" "The internationally bestselling author of The Wedding Officer delivers a stunning blend of exotic adventure and erotic passion that seduces from the very first page--and intoxicates until the last . . . a novel whose mystery begins with a single coffee bean. A cup of coffee changed Robert Wallis's life--and a cup of very bad coffee at that. The impoverished poet is offered the last thing a struggling young artiste in fin de siecle England could possibly want: a job. But the job Wallis accepts--employing his palate and talent for words to compose a "vocabulary of coffee" based on its many elusive flavors--is the beginning of an extraordinary adventure. It's an adventure that will lead Wallis across the continent and into the arms of two breathtaking women: Emily, the spirited daughter of his employer, and Fikre, the defiant, seductive slave of a powerful coffee merchant, who, in one unforgettable gesture, invites Wallis to partake of both the mysteries of coffee and a forbidden passion--a passion that will change the way he thinks about life, about fate, and especially about love. . . .

    Review quote
    "Capella serves up an fine new helping of gourmet fiction."--"The Economist" "This story is an eclectic brew of such diverse elements as the coffee trade, women's suffrage, foreign travel and slavery, and is spiced up with a dollop of exotic romance."--"Seattle Times" "The Various Flavors of Coffee is an enthralling story, full of twists and surprises, passion and sex and, of course, coffee."--"Boston Globe" "Robust.... Fast-paced ... propelled by Capella's masterful characterizations."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Capella infuses history and style into a skillfully crafted blend that starts sweet, turns to a rich, full flavor, and leaves readers craving a bit more." --"Library Journal ""Capella's vividly sensuous command of the arts of both food and romance will attract readers." --"Booklist"
