Scarborough?

Is it actually possible to find a good shot?

I blame my tool! Must be that, cos I've only got a Baby one...

Went to Baz's on Saturday and SW(Thinks She)MBO said that the espresso was better than mine - how dare she :shock:
She also said it was probably the best espresso she'd ever had in the UK - as good as real Italian ones!

We had the pleasure of meeting Baz as well. The only problem is the distance from here to Scarborough - but then again that could be a good things as She might forget how good his coffee is :D
Thanks Baz!

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

just when you thought it was safe to enter the water again ......

you know how it goes fellas, the admiration of my public, young ladies desperate to be seen with the latest coffee hot shot :-) it all takes up my time lol

in other words my new set of friends have found me to me a little sad and have become bored with my poor jokes and insensative ramblings... you know a bit like you guys and Dom ? but you dont shun him so if i behave may i join your gang again and post lots of stuff again and as usuall less than 10% of it coffe related?

and public apology to Cakes for not responding to a much loved guy who found time and effort to see if a friend was ok and i put off responding untill a million years went by :-(
he will make me pay i know he will .....

Hi Baz, Abi and I popped in to one of your branches on Sat evening. Intrigued to see it turns into a tapas restaurant after hours! Couldn't stretch to the tapas but had a delicious coffee (as expected!) and a nice chat with your friendly barista. There's something wonderful about sitting in a coffee shop on a cold dark evening! Then headed off to see Rob Brydon at the Futurist Theatre... little insight into my life there. Tom

BAZ! Great to have you back. Oh, but we do shun Dom, he just doesn't notice it. Great to hear you are well.

Only Cakes kit list Baz! Oh and Bruces too...

Mine has remained consistent mate - and largely unbroken (I wish I could say the same for myself!!!!)

We are planning a trip back to the UK in about 7 years - you still going to be around?

Baz you tart! :P Now I shall have to call back the expeditionary team that set off a month ago, complete with pack mules, huskies and an Aeribie, for the wilderness that is Scarborough (turn right at Leeds and hope .....) with a view to a rescue!

It's great to see you around and to know you are okay. If you leave again, I will send Dom ..... revenge enough? :shock:

This place is poorer without your presence becasue we have to listen to Dom more. And, btw, shunning Dom is a vocation, never a chore! :P
