Week beginning August 13th - Second Test Lords/Third Birthday

Exciting week this week, we are back at the greatest cricket ground in the world for the second Summer Test with South Africa vs England. 30,000 people in the ground, we are busiest from 9 am to 11 am pushing out over 700 drinks in two hours, then we can relax a bit and enjoy our position overlooking the premier Veuve Cliquot outdoor dining area in the ground and make a few coffees here and there as we go into lunch service for 150 covers.

Not only is the weather amazing at the moment (what rain?), we are all on a sporting high/post Olympic glow. It's our third birthday this week too, so with an immense sense of pride, I am extremely happy and grateful that we have reached this milestone and have settled into the format that is cricket at Lords.

We held a staff training session last night on coffee cupping as well as a 'what happens if....' training session on our pride and joy the Synesso machine, held by our new lead barista Shaun and manager Claire, who recently went to Square Mile for a personal training session with James Hoffman.

The training session was a huge success, professionally conducted by the trainers James, Shaun and Claire. To have staff who have so much pride and passion for the business they work for is a wonderful wonderful feeling, I could not be more proud of them.

Happy days.
