Coming to a regency town near you-
Weekend 15th– 16th May is going to have the first coffee festival in Britain- hard to believe but strangely we have never had one before. Obviously café culture has taken a little longer to arrive here but it seems to be arriving with ‘both barrels’. The show, on the rec (Bath Rugby ground) in Bath is free and aimed at the general public as opposed to being another trade show- however, it appears that consumer shows are becoming the new ‘trade event’ where canny trade buyers pose as ‘normal’ folk seeking out new and different products.
Consumers, the people we are really interested in are expected in the hundreds if not thousands- Bath is pretty popular as a weekend destination at anytime of year and no stranger to these events- but combine Telegraph readers, Waitrose shoppers and one of Britain’s most scenic cities and you have the perfect day out.
Malmesbury Syrups will be there if force- new flavours, lots of samples and a healthy enthusiasm for adding flavour to other peoples coffee’s should at least get us noticed. Were we not a sponsor we would of course get slung out for adulterating good coffee with our flavours however, we notice that the coffee snobs soon settle down once they have been ‘gingered up’ with one of our popular flavours.
So 10.00 am Bath Rugby ground, Bath on an English spring day – see you there?
