UK Coffee Week

Some days it feels as though coffee flows through my veins. It is quite possibly my biggest vice (if you discount the strange character flaw that sets me off, giggling like a schoolboy, every time You’ve Been Framed repeats are shown).

I have been trying to write a post on coffee for a little while now, and this isn’t that post. What it is, however, is a short post to mark the start of UK Coffee Week 2014. Running from 7th to 13th April, it aims to raise £100,000 to complete Project Waterfall: providing safe water to a remote Tanzanian community. Please have a good look at their website for more information about the project and about UK Coffee Week and the ways in which we can all support this initiative.

If you’re in Devon, then Route 2 cafe in Topsham will be doing their bit this Friday with a coffee event showcasing various South West coffee roasters:

I will still get round to writing a full-blow post about coffee one of these days. In the meantime, if, like me, you enjoy coffee then please enjoy UK Coffee Week. Even if you don’t, there are still ways to support Project Waterfall, particularly if coffee-related hip hop is your thing.

Many of us will be knocking back a fair amount of the stuff this week, irrespective of it being UK Coffee Week, so why don’t we try to make sure that our caffeine-guzzling over the next few days benefits people who could really use our help?

  2. No I don’t drink coffee ever, just do not like it, BUT I love coffee flavoured cake, biscuits, chocolate. I will try and have some coffee walnut cake this week instead of a cup of coffee.
