Fresh venues, brew news, foodie freebies and a big old dose of community spirit to keep you going this July
What’s been going down
Get behind your brew bro
Coffee community assemble: it’s time help a brew brother out. Joe Meagher of Flat Caps Coffee in Newcastle has launched a KickStarter project to raise funds for a second coffee shop in the city. Get behind another top notch speciality spot here.
Part-time barista, full-time coffee geek
Yay Coffee! in Scarborough is looking for a part-time barista and full-time coffee geek to join its lively team. Think you’re up to the job? Email your CV (and your mad barista skills) to Lottie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mad for Mokoko
Heading to Bristol soon? You’ll want to add another entry to the back of your South West Guide as Mokoko‘s new venture on the city’s Wapping Wharf is now open. After you’ve browsed the intriguing roaster offering, make sure to hit the bakery for a sweet treat to keep your coffee company.
Everyone loves a freebie, right? Make sure to grab a Soderberg lunch loyalty card next time you’re chowing down at the Queensferry Street venue in Edinburgh and bag yourself a free lunch on your 10th visit. #win
New website for North Star
Put your procrastination to good use and check out North Star Coffee‘s brand new website. Stacked with speciality info on processing, origins and varietals, it’ll probably be more useful than watching that video of the cat playing the piano again.

From its wet mills in Kahondo, Katanda and Kavisa, and with organic farmers that have been trained and certified, Schluter will soon have some exceptional Kivu coffees landing in the UK.
