The London Coffee Festival...

On one of my many boring tube journeys to work I spotted a poster for The London Coffee Festival and knew it would be something right up my street. London - check, large amounts of coffee on offer - check!! So on Sunday, Ben and I took ourselves off to East London to sample the delights The London Coffee Festival had to offer. Seeing as the event was in Brick Lane there was obviously going to be an obligatory East London outfit photo!

For someone who loves coffee and chocolate this was a dream day, I lost count of the number of different blends I tried and the number of times I went back to the Green and Blacks stall for yet another sample of their chocolate! Alongside the highstreet chains, they were plenty of artisan coffee makers and independent companies - Ben and I had a delicious latte from a shop based in Leeds made from beans that had undertones of caramel. We also stumbled across a 'make it yourself' machine so Ben did his best impression of a barista and whipped up two expressoes (don't give up the day job just yet!). We rounded the day up with me getting my caricature drawn onto the side of a reusable Starbucks cup. Although I don't think it looks that much like me, I'm pretty impressed with the artists skills at he whacked it out in about two minutes! As much as it would be cool to rock up to Starbucks and get my typical caramel latte in my very own personalised cup I think this little gem is destined to be a memento of the day.
