There’s a hint of holiday in the sun about this month’s book, it is August after all, so why the devil not?!
Dawn French’s autobiography, ‘Dear Fatty’, takes a look back over her whole life, “from her early years as an RAF child to her flat-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders, from her outspoken views on sizeism to her marriage to Lenny Henry, Dear Fatty chronicles the fascinating and hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.”
As always, we’d love to see you at the meet up. Even if you don’t finish (or in some cases start) the book, please feel free to come along and join in the conversation over a cup of coffee or even a pint of Peroni!
Church St’s book club starts at 6pm on Thursday 28th August.
So, people of Coventry – if you haven’t already heard (where have you been?!), we’re opening a new premises in the new development on Far Gosford St called ‘Fargo Village’. And, to go along side the best coffee this side of the moon, we’ve got a much bigger kitchen than we’ve had before and we’re looking for someone to run it and plenty of others to work in it!
If you think you have what it takes to be the best kitchenista ever, then do get in touch! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and covering letter, or you can apply through Gumtree here.
We first spoke about it a couple of weeks ago… a little thing called Urban 5. Well, now we are ready to announce it properly!
To celebrate half a decade of Urban Coffee Co. we are launching our very own espresso blend. We have worked closely with our new coffee roasters and friends…drum roll please…Origin Coffee Roasters! Based in beautiful Cornwall, these guys are just fab and we have worked together to produce a blend which we think is something truly special!
Over the past couple of weeks the guys at Origin have been busy roasting to perfection. We had a wonderful couple of days in Cornwall to see the magic happen and Adrian has been working hard with all of our super talented urbanistas to get as many of our lovely customers to try this exciting new espresso as possible so that we can get it just right!
Origin are a bit like us; small, independent but going somewhere – we both have BIG plans. We are really excited to be partnering up with them. Again, Origin trade directly with growers making sure that:
“When you drink a cup of Origin coffee, it not only tastes great; you know it has guaranteed farmers, workers and the environment a fair deal.
Sourcing traceable, sustainable, speciality coffee and developing relationships between grower and barista is at the heart of what we do.”
We have had a blast working with Union Hand Roasted over the past two years and we are delighted that we will still be able to use their fantastic coffees to put on as guests and filters!
With the builders now working round the clock in Coventry to get our first emporium outside of Birmingham ready for some brand new Urban Coffee lovers, it’s the perfect time to develop a blend of espresso to call our own; shaped and fine tuned by the feedback of our teams and our customers – the beating heart of our company - this really is a very, very exciting time for all of us and we are so happy that all of you lovely people have joined us on the journey!!!
We have a very welcome new addition to our product list at our flagship emporium on Church St and we are happy to announce it comes just in time for our Birthday weekend!
As many of our regulars will know, we already have a great bottled beer and wine list, however, we are really excited to be selling Peroni on tap as well now! We thought it was about time we gave you the chance to have a pint at Live Music Friday or another one of our great events!!
What’s more, if you fancy a half with a sandwich at lunch you don’t have to drag your caffeine loving colleagues to a noisy pub because, well, we’ve got your back, and your colleagues have still got the chance of getting themselves a cup of the best coffee this side of the moon.
So, as the weekend approaches why not come and challenge Beth and the team to pull the perfect pint!
We source our coffee beans from locations all over the world. With a clear focus on quality and service, you can sample our wonderful drinks in one of our café emporiums, purchase our fresh-ground coffee beans in our online store.
We’re trying to be more connected with our customers than our big rivals can ever be, so we rely on things like our blog, Twitter, Facebook, FourSquare and our fantastic iPhone app to keep people in the loop and engage with the people who keep us in business.
