Lyons Coffee Bags*

On the go coffee bags

Cafetieres are beautiful to look at, therapeutic to put into action and produce great flavoured coffee but sometimes we just don’t have the time to get involved with one; the time it takes to prepare, to empty and clean up afterwards can take away some of the joy especially if you’re rushing around in the […]

Crushed Bean, Croydon

Breakfast, cheesecake and tea from Crushed Bean
