Cappuccino in Makushi

Excellent cappuccino in Makushi.

As of Easter, garden out the back is now open.

Pleasing to see people using the garden, and that it is No Smoking.

Juliet recommended God in a Cup.

I usually ignore recommendations, be it music or books, but Juliet, one of the best baristas in the country, knows coffee, worth the risk, I ordered a copy.

On my way up, Coffee Bobbins, new coffee shop at the bottom of The Strait.  An excellent job done on the interior, but when a coffee shop has sticker on the door offering tea pigs, Tetley under any other name, it tells me they know nothing about quality tea. I asked of their coffee. One of the girls showed me a bag of beans. Nothing on origin, no aroma, it may have had a roast date, but if it did, I did not notice.

On my way down, a guy taking photos, a guy with artificial blade runner legs. I said problem the people in the way. He said no problem, he had a filter that removed them. I was baffled by this. He showed me the filter. Jet black. To get sufficient light, even on a bright day like today, he has to use 8 seconds time lapse, hence the heavy duty tripod. Which means do not record the people. Very clever. I suggested if a filter not as dark, the people would be a ghostly blur.

Wenslydale cheese from The Cheese Society

Earlier I had popped in Waterstone’s Cornhill.  Paperback edition of And the Weak Suffer What They Must? on display, excellent must read book by Yanis Varoufakis.
