Week beginning - December 19th - Thank for 2011 and goodbye Jess

We are all very much looking forward to a bit a of a break over Christmas, yes we close from December 23rd at 4 pm until January 3rd when we re open at 7:30 am.

We are taking the chance to do some refreshing of our paintwork, as well as some work to the vaults we have downstairs, the old bomb shelters, so there will be people around, just no-one to make coffee or food I am sorry.

It really has been an amazing year though, and I sincerely am grateful to all of you who have graced our doors in 2011. We have grown to be regarded as one of the leading cafes in the UK, as well as one of the busiest, and the people I need to really thank for that are all of the Kaffeine staff who put in so much effort and commitment, passion and enthusiasm.

One of those staff is leaving us this week as well. Young Jess, who has been with us for over a year, is returning to Australia. What Jess has achieved, and the standards she has set for Kaffeine and also for all those who have worked with her or she has trained, is beyond amazing.

When I interviewed Jess she was replacing the legend that is Rhea, and she has well and truly shown herself to be another true Kaffeine legend.

We are having a party tonight to say goodbye, it might get a bit emotional and we will all miss her, but we know that whatever she does in her life, she will be an amazing success.

Have a fabulous Christmas everyone and an amazing New Year from all at Kaffeine.
