It was, in coffee shops of all sizes and variants, that our imaginations seemed to really come alive, thrown into greater relief by dint of the creative environment we inhabited.

I like to explore cities at a leisurely pace. There's always a lengthy list of not-to-be-missed cultural sites, but along the way I will stop off in myriad cafés to drink coffee and try exotic cakes and pastries.

Summer this year has so far been a blink and you'll miss it affair, but it lasted long enough to cause an explosion of Coca-Cola in Somerset. Not an explosion of sales, an explosion of the actual drink itself.

Unfortunately there's a perception that coffee, even speciality grade coffee, should be cheap, but this isn't sustainable. High quality coffee has higher costs at every step to market and requires greater skills to grow. This is why we need to sufficiently reward producers for their labour.

As Leonard Cohen once said "my reputation as a ladies man was a joke, it caused me to laugh bitterly through the ten thousand nights I spent alone." An essential part of being a ladies man is the delusion that all women are attracted to you - at all times.

Another Italian rip-off, is, of course, coffee chains. On his first visit to a UK coffee shop my confused boyfriend had a lot of questions: 'What's a Mochaccino?', 'And a syrup shot?' and 'ARE YOU JOKING? £1.80 for an Espresso?!'

DJ Yoda, Maximo Park, James and the Inspiral Carpets stopped by for a cuppa. We said we'd close at 10pm each night but things were still swinging at 3am the next morning.
