LONDON COFFEE FESTIVAL 12-15 April 2018

As a keen coffee drinker (extra hot, soya, flat white if you’re asking), news of the upcoming London Coffee Festival has me buzzing with the intensity of quadruple double shot espressos. The annual event celebrating the capital’s vibrant coffee scene takes up residence for a coffee-filled week at The Old Truman Brewery in London. I have always loved ...

Café Review: Baked Derby

Hi all, how are you doing on this (surprisingly clement) Friday? One of the joys of working in the city centre (for this Derby foodie) is to indulge in the ability to pop out during lunch and have everything at your fingertips, from delicious coffee to freshly prepped sandwiches.

LiveBlog: Atlas Café & Deli Nottingham

Hello All, Hope you’re all well. This is my second attempt to get settled in a café and blog and write to my little heart’s content. I was at 200 degrees earlier, which wasn’t too great for me.

Hello People, How are you? Hope the weather isn’t misbehaving too much where you are. Hope you had a lovely long weekend. What did I get up to?

BBC Radio interviews, Derby Telegraph photo-shoots and coffee for World Book Night!

Hello People, how are you? It’s been something of a crazy busy week; let’s all breathe a collective sigh that it’s Friday today! It was World Book Night on Wednesday and as I was chosen to be a WBN Giver for the third consecutive year in a row (triple whoop), there was fun, frolics and ...

Birthday cake, cocktails & general mayhem…

Hey guys, how’s it going? It’s a chilly Tuesday afternoon and I’m hunkering down to my first blog of the week with prerequisite cup of coffee to hand (thank you to Rockstar Rosi at Rhode Island). So, what have you been up to? It’s been a fun few days. Two birthday celebrations, discovery of two ...
