I'm an absolute coffee freak - my only problem is there is no good coffee near my office. If you're ever in Reading, where I live, and in need of a coffee there's a place I've just found and would v v highly recommend. It gets a few mentions on some blogs (locals here, here and here seem to love it - this guy walks five miles just to get some coffee there), even though it's not been open long, so that's got to be a good sign.
After a busy few days out of the office last week I stopped by at this new coffee shop on Reading's Oxford Rd. It's called Workhouse Coffee, just up from West Reading train station, and it serves what has to be the best coffee I have ever tasted. The owner, Greg, is a massive coffee connoisseur and really knows his stuff (I also love coffee but don't know my stuff unfortunately). He says he used to work in the coffee trade in London selling quality coffee beans or something. Anyhow I'm hoping he'll bring his mobile coffee stall to my train station as there's nothing for me there in the mornings for my commute. Bah.
As Workhouse Coffee's getting such blog love already I hope it starts one of its own and does a Stormhoek on us. As it's going to be selling its quality coffee supplies direct, blogging would help it engage with the many coffee fans out there.
