Manor House

December 2, 2019

After visiting Mind the Cup and a little wander down the street, I head to Manor House opposite.

On my last visit, Manor House sourced their coffee from Tarreso but did tell me they hoped to roast their own coffee.

Now they are roasting their own coffee.

I am made a cappuccino.

Then head to Peristeri Metro Station. Luckily not raining.

Mind the Cup

December 2, 2019

A rainy day, head to Mind the Cup in Peristeri on the Metro.

As a few days ago, once in Mind the Cup it pours, though not as heavy as the week before when the streets awash with water.

I am in luck, I find who I am looking for before she finishes her shift. She greets me as soon as I walk in and thanks me for the coffee I dropped off for her.

She makes me a cappuccino. I would have picked up a bag of coffee, she is the coffee roaster, but do not like to carry coffee when it is raining.

After a wander down the street, I had to Manor House diagonally opposite Mind the Cup.

Rainy afternoon in Peristeri

December 2, 2019

Four weeks ago Tuesday, a rainy afternoon in Peristeri.

Heavy rain during the night, a day of sunshine and heavy rain, a day for the Metro and coffee shops.

Peristeri, head north on the Red Line, one stop short of the last stop.

I took the wrong exit out of the Metro station, at first disorientated.

At least nine roads lead out of the square and then immediately divide. All very confusing.

I head to Mind the Cup.

An interesting street lined with bars, restaurants, coffee shops and a few shops.

Night, ate out in Plaka.

Mind the Cup

November 29, 2019

Last day of October, up late, no sun, misty.

A day of hunderstorms and heavy rain.

A day for the Metro.

To Peristeri, last but one stop on Red Line to visit Mind the Cup.

Unfortunately who I wished to see not there. My fault, had I left earlier I would have caught her.

It then chucked it down. Streets awash with water.

Excellent cappuccino.

It was then to Syntagma and back out on the Blue Line to Ethniki Amyna to find Kudu Coffee Roasters.

Mind the Cup named by Buzzfeed as one of 25 coffee shops must visit in the world.

Last day of October, up late, no sun, misty.

A day of hunderstorms and heavy rain.

A day for the Metro.

Buy a Metro ticket for 24 hours at Acropoli Metro Station. Had I noticed, I would have bought from ticket office as was open, rather than struggle with ticket machines.

I was after Kudu Coffee Roasters.

Not a pleasant area, at least not walking along the busy polluted roads, but Kudu excellent coffee shop, excellent coffee.

But tea pigs tea, no way.

Dinner in Plaka. It had been a wet day, I half expected to find restaurant closed, instead I find a party.

Late night party until gone midnight, everywhere dark. Excellent musician playing.
