There’s something about smoke – or maybe steam – pouring upward. It contradicts the laws of gravity for anything to rise, even when we know intellectually that there’s a logical explanation. Add in the intricate carvings on an old brass coffee pot – or is it gold? – and you have a recipe for mystery and intrigue. Perhaps your hero is a spy who’s following a crook into a Turkish coffee shop. Maybe a mixed-up genie lives inside. The story is up to you – if the book cover fits, ask for Aladdin’s Coffee.
