Week Beginning November 8th - European Coffee Awards - Best Independent Cafe

We are very happy little people at Kaffeine this week.... proud, humble and happy. This is because this week, after being open only 14 months, we were judged to be the Best Independent Cafe in Europe at the European Coffee Symposium and Awards, held in Rome.

Over 300 leading executives and coffee industry people voted in a survey held in August this year and we were shortlisted with the respected Monmouth coffee and Double Eye cafe in Berlin. Catherine our manager went to Rome (I could unfortunately not attend) for the black tie gala dinner and the conference the next day and has come home a winner with a beautiful trophy and a big smile.

I must say a very big thank you to the all the staff at Kaffeine for all their hard effort, passion and enthusiasm, as well as all of our valued customers who have supported us in some many ways and of course our family and friends for their belief in us from the start. This is truly a great honour to be recognised by industry peers in this way and we very much appreciate it. Thank you very much.
