Food & coffee in Hong Kong – the best and the rest

    Good for coffee The Mixing Room is worth climbing the steps for and Café Sausalito which reminded us of one of our great coffee experiences in Sausalito, San Francisco. Accro is the one coffee geeks (like my bf) seem to pay a pilgrimage too. Plus Fuel Espresso and Pacific Coffee seems to be the […]

Coffee in Vancouver

Coffee in Vancouver

Interestingly on this Vancouver trip, all the new people I met wanted to meet in Bakeries. A mix of Italian, French or general. I was introduced to Truffles – the bf and went back there for a little lunch, Sciué, Tartine and  Faubourg, all pretty close to where we were staying; I walked everywhere! What’s really […]

Vancouver: Where to go for coffee

Vancouver: Where to go for coffee

I change when I get to Vancouver. I’m as happy in the independent coffee shops as I am in the Canadian corporate owned chains. Frankly, Tim Horton’s is an institution and a day in Canada doesn’t feel complete with out a visit. Here I change too; I have French Vanilla occasionally, especially as my late […]

Glasgow: coffee, ‘tea’ & Yelp

Glasgow: coffee, ‘tea’ & Yelp

My third August bank holiday in Scotland so that makes it a bona-fide tradition now. This is my first time in Glasgow though when I haven’t gone to work on my book, which is completed and sent to an agent (waiting response before sending it the next on this month). Instead this is one of […]

Coffee Vancouver

Coffee Vancouver

There have been a plethora of new coffee shops that have sprung up in Vancouver since last year’s visit, or some of them were just hidden from view. Despite being of the new-fangled (slightly irritating) type, the first thing that strikes me is that in most of them, I can still get good old-fashioned ‘brewed’ coffee, […]

A Coffee Lover’s view of London Coffee Festival

My first time at the London Coffee Festival because a) I love coffee and b) to support the boyfriend’s brilliant new venture Coffee Birmingham. The coffee festival, surprisingly only in its second year and not UK wide – just the focus on London’s coffee shops, was full of gorgeous gadgets to play with, a little […]

Adventures in Birmingham: Live music at Six Eight Kafé

Adventures in Birmingham: Live music at Six Eight Kafé

Those of you who know me on Twitter will have noticed I’ve been to every single Live Music Friday evening at Urban Coffee Co but now I’m delighted there’s a second coffee house to embrace one of life’s pleasures. I’ve loved live music in coffee shops ever since I first saw a man and a […]

Kopi Coffee – because life’s too short for bad coffee

Kopi Coffee – because life’s too short for bad coffee

I first came across the Kopi guys when we attended the Tea & Coffee Festival in London last year. Having tried some of their coffee, we bought some home but what impresses even more than the lovely coffee is the Kopi attitude. For one they maintained excellent customer service on the day and had an offer to […]
