World Coffee Research Donation

This is just an update on our promise related to International Coffee Day on October 1. 2017.

In previous years we donated the day's coffee drink sales to a worthy cause in respect of the amazing drink we are privileged to serve every day.

The donation is made possible by your continued support of our shop, for which we are very grateful.

This year International Coffee Day was a closing day, so we decided to make a donation equal to an average day coffee drink sales instead.

The amount has now been donated to the important work of World Coffee Research. They do accept donations through their website - large or small - if you should feel inspired :)

Where to Drink Coffee by Phaidon

Phaidon has just published their Coffee equivalent to Where Chefs Eat; Where to Drink Coffee
It is a good looking book, and from a few quick spot checks, the coffee shops (that I am familiar with) are well chosen.
A little more attention to the page layout would have been nice, and quite a few of the coffee expert quotes are indistinguishable from the wording you'd find on social media. 
But all in all, it could be a useful reference book for travel planning (and we are mentioned on page 91 😉)

International Coffee Day 2017

Sunday, October 1 is International Coffee Day
During the past two years we have celebrated the day by showing our appreciation for this amazing drink and its producers by offering a special menu where all income from your coffee drink purchases were donated to International Women's Coffee Alliance.

As this years International Coffee Day falls on a closing day, we will approach it differently. 

We will still make a donation equivalent to one average days worth of coffee drink sale. 
This year we will direct the money to the important work done by World Coffee Research as described in their mission:
Grow, protect, and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of the families who produce it.

Naturally, we still want to do something special for you: On Saturday Sept. 30 and Monday Oct. 2 we will serve a super special and exclusive espresso! Needless to say, this is also more expensive bean - but the price will be the same for you :)

The coffee is the same as Dale Harris used when he recently won the UK Barista Championship. 
A delicate natural processed Yellow Pacamara (a huge bean) where only the smallest beans was selected (Check out the story by Steve of Has Bean).

Hope to see you Saturday or Monday.
