So, everything’s a bit shit right now but I’m sitting down with my coffee for another Happy post, reflecting on the things that have been making me happy recently, which has been a great way of balancing out all the bad news. Join me?
This week’s coffee is the Kenyan Kagumoini AA from Clifton Coffee with fruity tasting notes of blackcurrant, rhubarb and gooseberry.
The Happy Things:
