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 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?… (mais)

As soon as this moved into the paranormal - that she could go back in time by sitting in a certain seat in the cafe, and change what happens in the future - I lost interest. I found it a turn-off. And the thread of the relationship seemed silly rather than amusing. ( )

This book is all about time traveling. It's taken place in a cafe in a certain seat that can take a person in the past or future. However there's a list of rules one must follow. A server pours you a cup of coffee and you must return before it gets cold. There's not a lot of time to spend in the past or future. While you're there, nothing can be changed. So what's the point?

I would say it's okay - not great. ( )

Very lyrical writing; written in a way that reminds me of oral tradition or oral lore. Some people have said it can feel repetitive but I didn't get that, I felt the repeated nature was purposeful when it was done. The stories built on each other and let you get invested in the characters. Beautiful and charming; heartbreaking, but hopeful. Would definitely recommend and will probably reread. ( )

This book has an interesting concept but I found the writing to be cold and distant, as if the author was only telling the story instead of showing. It may be because of the cultural and language difference, or it may not.
It was still an enjoyable story. ( )

Takes the idea of time travel and puts a fresh spin on it I would not have guessed could work. Told as separate stories of people wanting to time travel I loved how the author still brought it all together at the end in such a satisfying and thought provoking way. ( )

In four intertwined chapters, Kawaguchi invites readers to accompany four intrepid adventurers who desire a second chance at a crucial conversation in their lives.... Interwoven into what initially feels like a whimsical escape are existential conundrums of love and loss, family and freedom, life and death. “[N]o matter what difficulties people face,” Kazu muses at book’s end, “they will always have the strength to overcome them. It just takes heart. And if the chair can change someone’s heart, it clearly has its purpose.”
 
Before the Coffee Gets Cold, the debut novel from playwright Toshikazu Kawaguchi... inventively limits the mechanics of its time travel to the confines of a small cafe, and is all the more resonant for it.... Although the characters are unable to alter the past, the implications they bring forward into the future are real, and the experiences the characters undergo carry real weight on the narrative, which is reflected as the stories progress. While not usually one to shy away from spoilers, I think the real enjoyment of the novel comes not from the way the narratives are told, but the individual narratives in themselves. They are at times a bit sappy, and don’t go in expecting many twists – but this doesn’t take away from the emotional weight behind these moments.
 
In four connected tales, lovers and family members take turns sitting in the chair that allows a person to travel back in time for only as long as it takes a single cup of coffee to cool.... The characters learn, though, that even though people don’t return to a changed present, they return “with a changed heart.” Kawaguchi’s tender look at the beauty of passing things, adapted from one of his plays, makes for an affecting, deeply immersive journey into the desire to hold onto the past. This wondrous tale will move readers.
