There are two major problems with the kinds of Christmas coffees you can pick up right now from the big chains we won’t be naming here. Along with being completely overpriced, there’s the fact that so many of them contain more calories than a double cheeseburger. Literally, they do!
Which is why the way we see it, you’re far better off getting hold of some epic-quality coffee and experimenting with your own concoctions at home. You’ll save money, you’ll keep the calories down and you’ll probably have a great time too. What’s more, replicating some of the UK’s favourite big-name Christmas coffees really isn’t all-that difficult either.

Efficiency and productivity at work are all about creating the best possible working environment. Which technically speaking isn’t all that difficult to do.

If you don’t currently have a decent coffee machine installed, there are several reasons why you may want to think about picking one up and putting it to use. Suffice to say, it’s the kind of investment that has the potential to pay for itself in no time at all.Read More

In a word, yes…yes it could.Read More

As anyone who’s really into good coffee will know, you have to look a lot further than your local Starbucks to find the hottest (and coldest) new trends. The bigger chains tend to pick up on the next big thing soon enough, but only months or years after true coffee connoisseurs have been trying new tricks and methods.
Which is precisely why what’s very much the flavour of the month right now is one you won’t find at most big-name coffee shops. If you want to see what the big deal’s all about with nitro coffee, you need to head elsewhere. For the time being, at least.Read More

Chances are that quite a lot of people you know drink coffee in a manner that you cannot help turning your nose up at. Some prefer it a little too weak, others at bizarre temperature and then there are those that use the kinds of flavour syrups you simply do not understand.
But what about lemon juice as an added ingredient? Or cheese? Or eggs?Read More
