Photo of the day – Coffee

With the opening last week of Caffe Nero, Barnstaple is officially drowning under milky coffee flavoured drinks. Capitalism gone mad – chasing market share, not profits.

Actually, it has a long way to go. Within staggering distance of my former London office, I could count two Starbuck’s, Caffe Nero, Coffee Republic, two Pret-a-Manger, fast food outlets galore (selling “cappuccin”) plus several cheapo coffee wannabes.

Back in Barnie, I still prefer Boston Tea Party.
