What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

To start with I love to do as much as I possibly can – preferably outdoors. My Saturdays usually start by popping to get a flat white from The Almond Thief on my way to watch my son’s matches – ideally, I end up at the beach or maybe the moors if it’s a gloomy day.

What do you love about coffee?

I’ve got to say the taste – there are so many coffees to explore. But, it’s also more than that – it’s the social aspect, being able to connect with lots of different people.

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

Firstly, getting as far away from civilisation, preferably in the mountains whilst it’s snowing, and brewing up a super delicate pourover.

Secondly, getting as far away from civilisation, preferably in the mountains (yep, you guessed it) whilst it’s snowing, and brewing up a natural Kenyan with loads of stone-fruit notes with the Aeropress.

What do you love about coffee?

It’s the perfect palette for creativity. There’s scientific skill behind brewing but there’s also artistic flair. More than both of these, I love how you can control all other factors too – the environment you’re drinking in, the cup you’re drinking out of, the packaging and supporting tasting notes.
“Coffee isn’t just a beverage. It’s a tasty cup of caffeinated sanity in an uncertain world.”

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

I like to breakdance – whether it’s preparing a show, competition or just to chill with some friends in the summer; we train outside and jam at the quay. I also like to play the guitar (preferably outdoors), especially by the beach.

What do you love about coffee?

The list of why I love coffee is endless, nothing starts my day better than a freshly poured espresso. It’s aroma and flavour immediately brighten things up even on a cloudy day! Moreover, coffee plays a massive cultural role in my Neapolitan roots.

As the song of a famous Neapolitan songwriter says:

Int’e viche ‘e sti quartiere… nun ce trase manco ‘o sole ma ce scete l’addore do cafè”

“In the alleys of this neighbourhood… not even the sun can reach us but there is the aroma of coffee that wakes us up.”

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

Teaching my daughter Millie Grace to ride – taking her trekking through streams and woodland to screams of delight.  Ridiculously long coastal or moorland runs – total time out exploring my wonderful wild Westcountry – always challenging but very rewarding.

What do you love about coffee?

That it continues to be exciting, constantly evolving to reach a wider audience. Having worked in a spectrum of different ways as a coffee supplier I love the diverse range of people I have met.

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

you really cant beat a beach BBQ followed by swim, failing that a long walk on the moors with a picnic followed by a Pint.

 

 

What do you love about coffee?

I love that what ever you have to do, coffee sets you up to do it! Be it a busy day where you need loads of energy, a  full bodied Chocolatey Long Black does the job, or a lazy sunny day relaxing and unwinding then a Fruity or floral iced pour over is perfect!

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

My two favourite things for the weekend have to be spending long nights laughing around a fire and then going canoeing on the river just by where I live, which can be made more difficult by the former.

What do you love about coffee?

The fact that it connects and helps so many people across the world, it can improve your morning, somebody else’s prospects, someone else’s livelihood and someone else’s entire countries economy going on to improve so many more millions of peoples lives. It’s pretty cool stuff really.

What are two of your favourite things to do on the weekend?

I like to adventure – exploring the great outdoors with my friends and family, collecting tales and banter for my favourite pastime of bringing stories to everyone else I meet! I want to be by the ocean and under the stars. Secondly, I love to read. If I can’t explore the outdoors, I’ll still go on an adventure – I have books that will take me anywhere! As C. S. Lewis said, “you can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
And to finish off either of those things – movie nights!

What do you love about coffee?

I’m here for the tea really if I’m honest. The dream is to be surrounded by hundreds of different teas, of all colours and flavours and just go from one to another – tea is about the experience and the adventure!
Having said that, so is coffee – and as an avid tea drinker, I really have to be wowed by a coffee to drink that instead – so obviously that’s why I’m at Voyager because they know their coffee. And I like it. Plus they have a delightful range of teas.
