The rise of café culture across the UK has been exceptional in recent years, and it’s not just the well known high street coffee chains that have made a name for themselves.
In towns and cities across the land, you will find plenty of innovative independents specialising in anything from ice cream to freshly-made smoothies, or coffee cocktails. Welcome to the world of Café Culture!
You don’t have to be a coffee connoisseur to indulge, although there’s no doubt that in the UK, these days, we increasingly recognise a good cup of coffee when we’re served one. In addition to the widening availability of barista-made espressos and cappuccinos, local cafés and coffee shops have become the destination stop for the serving of plenty of other types of tempting café fayre.
For one thing, our busier, constantly ‘on the go’ lifestyles means that when we do stop off for refreshment, we’re after likely to want something ‘different’, of high quality - perhaps a treat or a tasty light bite, or something healthy that canbe eaten in, or taken away.
It is these aspects of UK coffee culture which Café Culture, the magazine, addresses and advises on in order to encourage outlets to thrive in a profitable and vibrant manner.
