Week beginning - September 5th

Goodness, it's been all happening this week, here is a quick run down.

We are looking for a new barista to replace the amazing Krysty who has been with us for over a year and definitely achieved Kaffeine legend status, she will be forever remembered as a superstar. Luckily for us she has moved on to another cafe called Department of Coffee and Social Affairs in Leather lane, so we now we can still go to see her.

We are also looking at a new POS system that works on an iPad called Isisipos. Bea from Beas of Bloomsbury put us onto it via Twitter and we hope to have it up and running by end of next week. Goodbye PC based cash registers!!! Hellloooo Apple.

We are also in talks with Belinda from Clerkenwell Chocolate, who will be supplying us with her home made truffles later this year, they are truly amazing and we are very fortunate to be able to sell her chocolates here at Kaffeine.

We are soon to be trialling a new QR code based feedback system, where customers will be able to provide feedback to us, leave comments and join our facebook and twitter groups, all pretty much instantly. Brilliant. Goodbye stupid feedback forms.

Then we also have our brunch menu. After a few weeks trial we have settled on some great options for brunch including home made baked bean casserole on kumara toast, or a breakfast foccacia with sliced cotechino sausage, gruyere and a fried egg, or pear and ale bread with marscapone and peche de vigne syrup. Amazing.

Finally we have our guest espresso weekends. This weekend it is the famous Melbourne based cafe, now here in London, St Ali, and their Cult of Done espresso.

Can anything else happen in just one week? Well yes, we were interviewed to be a part of a feature in the incredible Fire and Knives publication, and we were photographed for inclusion in a book on London cafes coming out in December called Cafe Life.
