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.
