Dark as a Hazel Eye: Coffee and Chocolate Poems

Edited by Ellen Foos, Vasiliki Katsarou, and Lynne Shapiro

Dark as a Hazel Eye, coverr

Chocolate as craving, as reward, as medicine; coffee as companion, cultural export, rite and ritual.

The process of brewing and tempering Ragged Sky Press' anthology of coffee and chocolate poems has begun. It should be ready for a taste in January 2016.

“A cup of coffee—real coffee—home-browned, home ground, home made, that comes to you dark as a hazel-eye, but changes to a golden bronze as you temper it with cream that never cheated, but was real cream from its birth, thick, tenderly yellow, perfectly sweet, neither lumpy nor frothing on the Java: such a cup of coffee is a match for twenty blue devils and will exorcise them all.”

—Henry Ward Beecher
