A rather friendly face in the coffee today. It’s the all to familiar face screaming out don’t drink me, I’m your friend and can help you work. Ha, we both know he lies and can’t be trusted so drink in the wakey juice goodness.
Using the delightful dear green beans I have made up a batch. Working on the one cup of ground beans to three cups of water.
I work in the digital world as I am sure most people currently do. Our life revolves around things that we will never even touch. Photos, Illustrations and even books, some never see the light of the physical world. That is why I love people who make physical items. A break from the current norm.
One of those people is a colleague who in exchange for some EH! gave me his latest musical treat.
The Nuclear Family is a combination of Tom Churchill & Laurence Hughes. I gave it a listen last night and loved it. My favourite track has to be Blind Spot
To quote Innate ” “Blind Spot” is a clear ode to Chi-town – jacked up beats meeting a mayday style flange that gives way to a heavy sounding raw-edged bass, countered with jazzed out chords. “
not what I was going to say anyway.
Alas yesterday evening also meant a trip out to the land of Artisan Roast, another section of Glasgow that self publishes but in this case beans.
The Nuclear Family playing on the Amstrad and these beans getting ground will make for a wonderful start to the Weekend. Coffee a go go.
Picked up 1kg of beans from the Byres rd Tinderbox, one of the best coffee spots in Glasgow’s west end. Open till 11pm with great staff and incredible tarts.
Literally can’t take a photo without this wee fella getting in the way. Loves the smell of coffee.
Everything’s turned up just past ’11’. Smoky flavours verging on tobacco.

The very talented Josh Woolliscroft has crafted this Turning press. A twist on the usual cafeterie where here you twist the handle at the top to press. I am pretty sure it makes the coffee taste better, totally sure.
It looks pretty spectacular. Check out the rest of his art works on his site, a particular favorite of mine is BIC WORLD (as seen below)
