Cool Running’s

I had my first iced coffee of the Summer at the fabulous Ninety-Six Degrees Coffee Shop, situated on Braunstone Gate, Leicester UK. This place is my home from home, I write here, edit images, here but more often than not just hang out and watch the world go by.

Iced Coffee is fairly new to me. I can’t quite remember where and when I tasted the cool brew first, but it was than a decade ago. Now I’m hooked, and this one shown here, served up by employee Hazel, was so delicious, it nearly went down in one gulp. Happily I did make it last awhile, and was very tempted to try another. Many more to come I fear, but hey, this is an exceptionally hot summer. 




The Lure Of The Coffee Shop

These days, a new coffee shop opens somewhere in the world every week. In the UK, the coffee explosion is something I never thought I’d ever see in my lifetime. As pubs close, another outlet opens and for me, more the merrier.

I’m a regular user of both independent and chain coffee outlets, and here in Leicester UK we have a good and varied selection to choose from. Come with me then on my journey into the heart of the coffee revolution, here in my hometown and further afield. I will be writing and inviting comment about the culture of coffee, and making comments about my many homes from home.
