Its been a while since I last posted. To be more accurate its been a few days short of 2 months.
I’ve been busy during these two months. Not too busy to cook because I’m always cooking but I’ve just not had any time to shoot and write about any of it.
The reason for this lack of time? I’ve bought a coffee shop.
If you’ve followed my blog during 2014 you would have seen my posts about my love (& addiction) of coffee and cake so naturally the next step was to do what I love and buy my own coffee shop.
Let me be the first to say its not the biggest coffee shop in the world, it’s not even the biggest coffee shop on the street (and there’s 5 others on the same street) but what makes this coffee shop so special? it’s mine and I’m going to do what I love to do.
It would be a bold statement for me to say that my coffee shop is going to be the best on the road but this is my plan. Our coffee comes from Oxford. It’s wood roasted, fair trade & organic, our tea’s are loose leaf and produced in Cheltenham. Our cakes are not from a packet, they are made on site fresh everyday by whisking eggs, beating butter and folding in flour and our sandwiches are made fresh daily using artisan breads with chutneys from Stroud.
Unfortunately this means the time I have for Custard or Cream will be reduced but if you like what you’ve seen here follow me over on twitter at @bakeandbrewhq for all the latest news, views & recipes.
