Well, it's been quite a while since I've blogged. But all that's about to change.
We've got some huge plans this year and here's the first brilliant and innovative idea we're launching on Saturday, 1st April 2017 at 8 a.m.
I've spent a year developing my first Fish Espresso Blend called "Poisson D'Avril". Complementing our strict ethos of using fully traceable Arabica coffee, we roast only line-caught mackerel and tuna, infusing each green coffee bean with the great taste of ... fish.
It began as a sole project and, at times, I have to admit I floundered. But soon, the big sharks were coming to my plaice in shoals. I cast about for inspiration and floated my ideas to French coffee guru, Dr. Clio Moonbail (A.N.A.G.) who said "When seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea,"... I shall miss our Gallic buddies, post-Brexit.
Q-Grade taster, Moira Coolblind (A.N.A.G), describes the new "Poisson D'Avril Espresso Blend" as "The incredible aroma of speciality coffee with notes of hazelnut, praline, cod's roe and dorsal fin. A fishy mouthfeel will send you reaching for the Polo mints". Praise indeed.
The first 10 people to purchase our new blend will win a signed copy of "There Ain't No Flies on Moi" by Dalmino Brocoli (A.N.A.G), a scintillating read of naturist fly-fishing in the Lake District. We're even going to throw in a free bottle of codswallop oil to keep your brain active.
Enjoy and have a great weekend .. you'd be an April fool not to!
