Life is short, stay awake for it! Especially this week! UK Coffee Week is here, check out some coffee facts and cafes, along with details on our BRAND NEW espresso cup and saucer.
UK Coffee Week is the week thousands of coffee shops band together to fundraiser for Project Waterfall – a charitable initiative clean water and sanitation to coffee-growing communities all around the world. Donating for every cup bought this week, buying grounds from a stall at the end of your week and celebrating coffee itself are all efforts that will be put into full force this week. 100% of funds raised go directly to Project Waterfall.

Coffee arrived in the 17thcentury and the first two coffeehouses were opened in 1652. Oxford is home to one of them, while the Jamaica Wine House lies in Saint Michaels Alley right here in London! Coffee shops were named “penny universities” due to the fact you paid one penny for a cup of tea. These were places people came to debate on politics, sciences, literature pieces and more.
Tea will always be a British favourite, but a fresh cup of coffee is never a bad idea. Did you know coffee is the most popular drink worldwide and in the UK alone, 95 million cups are consumed each day and that number is only climbing!
