Coffee Splash

I love coffee as much as the next guy, but I had some out of date coffee lying around and decided this was the best way to use it. I had seen these coffee splash photos doing the rounds on Flickr for a long time and wanted to try it.

 
 

Doughnut

Pardon my sticky table. Today I picked up my 28mm lens from AJ Johnstone after spending the past 2 weeks there getting repaired. The 28mm lens is my least used lens, I’ve just never grown fond of the wide perspective (the 50mm is my go-to lens for pretty much everything). However, whilst it was away I found I did miss it and was conjuring up lots of portrait ideas for use with the 28mm. Without it, I found I was going places and my composition was too tight (especially coffee shops and restaurants), and being an all-prime girl, it was something only my 28mm could fix. I couldn’t wait to use it again and shot a couple of frames of

 
 

Lunch at The Hidden Lane Tearoom

Shona often texts me spontaneously to say “Hey, I’m at Uni, let’s get coffee”, then the lazy me drags her to my side of town for some caffeine. I just find the city has little to offer in the way of independent coffee houses, and I find chains don’t stock as good coffee. The Hidden Lane Tearoom is a perfect blend of good food, beautiful light and smooth lattes, and it gets me way more excited than I should be.

I had tomato soup with a carrot, beetroot and goat cheese sammich, and a big pot of Chai tea.

With work I have a very specific vision of where I’m going, and I know I’ll get there because I always get to where I want to go. No distractions, except going for coffee, like I did yesterday, where I stayed until the shop closed and talked money, property, relationships, and …

 
 

Ethiopia Shakiso from Has Bean

Mmm, my coffee from Has Bean arrived today, recommended to me by my friend, Rick Nunn. My cafetiere had a chunk of glass break from it (I have no idea how), so it’s now been replaced with the dripper pot you see in the photos. My house smells so perfect right now!

 
 

Chai Latte at Artisan Roast

Artisan Roast sits next to Kelvingrove Park, which is how I know of it as that’s where I walk my dog. It’s been recommended to me on numerous occasions, and so today — when weighing up the decision to either nap or ply myself full of caffeine — I opted for a trip to Artisan Roast. I had a Flat White and a Chai Latte, both of which were lovely, and my friend tried a few of their bizarre array of hot chocolates. I’ll be back for a white hot chocolate soon.
