Before the Coffee Gets Cold ( コーヒーが冷めないうちに, Kohi ga Samenai Uchi ni ) is a 2015 novel by Toshikazu Kawaguchi [ ja]. The million-copy bestselling series about a small Japanese cafe that offers its visitors the chance to travel back in time. The hook for this book is certainly the time travel aspect, the mechanics of which falls apart under careful scrutiny, sure, but this isn’t hard scifi and ultimately it serves as an engaging and charming plot vessel to look at interpersonal relationships. Perhaps if the stories had varied a little more, or the rules weren’t quite as stringent allowing for more trepidation in the experiences, I would have felt more satisfied.In the second story a women just naturally sees herself as a nurse for her husband and is treated quite unappreciatively by him. At times it feels like over-direction as well, as if this book is giving notes for what is probably an inevitable film adaptation, with awkward overemphasis on the outfits and colors each character wears.

A fun read, though not one I’m particularly fond of, but effectively shows the message that ‘ it takes courage to say what has to be said. The time travel part is more of a disguise here, I wouldn’t classify it in this sub-genre; it’s more of a magical realism story about regrets and things not said or done until too late and the possibility to change that; well, sort of. It might have been more effective had it not made the pacing so jumpy, with flashbacks constantly interrupting the scenes and drawing the tension out in a way that feels like the elimination round scenes in a reality show where you just want to get to the point. The cafe is dream-like as in addition to time travel, it is also a magical thing in itself to find a quaint, quiet cafe in the bustling metropolis of Tokyo.

The book really is a play in novel format down to the entire book taking place in the same room (one of the time travel rules is that you can't leave your seat).
