I was on the radio this morning again, which is always a happy experience. During the music I talked to Phil Dawson, the station founder and presenter of the breakfast show on Fantasy Radio UK, about how difficult it is to experience a thoroughly satisfying coffee moment in Britain. It seems that we will be getting a new and perfectly pointless branch of one of the chain coffee shops in town. I know one or two places that serve a decent coffee but most coffee shops resemble canteens and the chains are among the worst offenders for not providing service, cleanliness and quality. I find that they all produce something that vaguely looks like coffee but tastes watery yet slightly bitter.
Probably the best cup of coffee in the country is served … chez moi. My freshly ground coffee is full bodied, smooth and without a hint of bitter. Of course, your photo session comes with a cup or two of exceedingly delicious coffee. It is part of my service and something else at which other photographers fail. In fact, my photo sessions begin with making my clients feel welcome, relaxed and at home.
Where do I go for my coffee beans? Whittard’s, of course. Whittard of Chelsea has been my preferred supplier of fine teas and coffees since 1987, which makes this year our 25th anniversary.
