It’s almost the end of the year, and of course it’s year-end review time – hooray (read that in the most sarcastic voice you can imagine). 2020 was the most consistent year for shareyourkape.com, talking about blog post frequency. So, it’s not surprising that it has also been the year with the most views (2019 was not even close). In previous years, the first part of my Instant Coffee series was my most viewed post.

Heck, now even Leon (healthy food shop also based in the UK) has also rolled out a coffee subscription service – reportedly even cheaper than Pret’s.

Well, my friends, I can attest to this because I have actually used an iPhone 6’s (iPhone 6, not iPhone 6s just to be clear or unless you didn’t notice the apostrophe) camera to shoot a short film – an award winning short film in fact. (There will be something about coffee later).
One day you’ll wake up, boil water for instant coffee, and then out of the blue say: “Hey! I want to begin my coffee journey!”. You then go to social media, join a coffee group, and ask: “Hey! I want to begin my coffee journey! Any suggestions?”. You’ll then get inundated by a plethora of suggestions that you probably won’t know what to start with.
