Time has lapsed and I may have been a little tardy on this latest entry. Many moons ago and before a fair few trips to A&E with various self inflicted power tool related injuries (my suggestion of airmiles and a visit by visit frequently flyer system has been put forward to St. Georges…I am yet to hear back am sure its under considertation), I mentioned the King of chai Mr Michelangelo. Well there is always two sides to every coin.
After the morning coffee, baked wonder and tea extravaganza winds it’s way to an inevitable close each day. The world and work weary traveller or say commuter will feel the troubles and strains of work each day that have been endured with stoic patience or petulant childish rage have earned him or her a reward of sorts. Now this is where we are endeavouring to help.
The thought of spending a fulfilling cheeky 30 minutes powernapping in the interview rooms, shouting at the various banal faulty printers and photocopiers that stare indifferently back at you or even furiously swiping left and right on various dating apps whilst hiding in the toilets is an exhausting prospect for most of us (or maybe just me).
This tireless devotion to the 9 to 5 has an antidote or shall we say a silver lining. If Michelangelo was Walter White in the renaissance of the coffee world, we have managed to employ the Jesse Pinkman of Mixologists if that is such a thing? With the hazy recollection of tasting some recipes (I say some, it may have been more if I am honest… plenty may be more apt) Ghermai Zerazion may just be a genius. This cheeky charming little chap and his merry little band of mixologists are gong to be the backbone of the Imperial Durbar’s evening team. So far we have been suitably impressed… I think we may be on to a good thing, a little more guidance and a little less sampling aside, it is hard to get all the best aspects in a barman but if you can combine good chat, charm, skill and speed I think you can quite happily rest easy with those troops behind you.
