We live in the era of third wave coffee and Starbucks offering a secret pumpkin caramel macchiato at the same time. Stores are offering tens of coffee alternatives and types of granulated coffee products. We can’t deny the fact that we have more choices for drinking coffee than ever. But which one is the right one? The third […]
Coffee & Tea
Visiting the Mast Brothers chocolate factory brought back a few memories. When I was a child, I had a few ideas about what I wanted to do in life. I wanted to “write a book”, be a chocolate taster or a spy. (At that time I didn’t know you could be a “writer”.) I gave […]
There’s no travel without a proper Coffee Tour when I visit new cities. I was excited to come to San Francisco and see what’s waiting for me there. What I found was refreshing – coffee culture is smaller there than in London. Blue Bottle has eight spots in the city, but it’s not all of […]
One of my favourite coffee shops in London, Iris & June, is located in the heart of Victoria. Hidden behind the high street, it’s “serving the people of Victoria” Monday till Sunday. I’ve been to the coffee shop a couple of times during the workweek and it’s a buzzing place where not one seat is left […]
A coffee shop with their own roastery is something to brag about. There are a few gems like that and Coleman Coffee Roasters belongs to this category. Their espressos are so thick and creamy the spoon almost stands in the cup. In fact, it won a Best Espresso Award in 2016. I wish I could say the same […]
I love nothing more than having a great cup of coffee. Well, except for a wonderful, fine-grade matcha tea. Since I don’t have an espresso machine, high-quality tea is easier to prepare. And if you don’t know what matcha is, know that it’s your new cup of espresso – only greener.
Dates are fun. They stop us from getting too used to the everyday life and bring in moments that otherwise don’t happen. They can be different for every couple, but personally I divide them into three categories: coffee, bar, and restaurant dates. Which one is the right for you? Find out by reading more.
New month, new opportunity to start fresh. While in January I’ve been juggling too many things, February has come with more peaceful fashion. I decided to push work a little bit away and create more space for myself. Here are a couple of things that help me get back on track. The Little Book Of […]
When we moved to London two years ago, I soon realised that our neighbourhood is somewhat different from the rest of London. It seemed to me like Lambeth is a lifeless place for residents to sleep at night, go to work in the morning, and return in the evening only to cook dinner and go to sleep […]
I’m a big fan of coffee and tea (in no particular order) and when I saw this year’s Whittard’s holiday collection, my heart sank. Not only the boxes and packaging looks super-festive, but the selected flavours and collections are exactly what you need for cold winter days. (Or at least I do.)
