The journey from coffee bean to a perfect cup is a balanced process, and one of the often-overlooked factors that can significantly impact your brew is the grind size. Each grind size unlocks distinct flavours, aromas, and characteristics from the coffee beans. In this article, we delve into the fascinating world of grind sizes and […]
Coffee, the beloved elixir that kickstarts our mornings and fuels our afternoons, is a beverage that has captivated the hearts of millions around the globe. What makes each cup unique and flavourful, though? The answer lies in the diverse world of coffee beans. In this blog, we will delve into the different types of coffee
Hi there! I’m Yevheniia, and not too long ago, I joined the Blue Bear Coffee Company team. My journey to this job was accidental. I had been visiting for a while, enjoying the nice and friendly vibe and sipping on delicious El Salvadorian coffee. The place felt different from others in town. I had never
Since the recent release of The Sound of Freedom in UK cinemas, a number of friends and customers have reached out for my thoughts on the film and its depiction of child trafficking. The story retells aspects of a true narrative regarding Tim Ballard, a former US investigator from the Department of Homeland Security, who
Guest blog written by Charlotte Pascall. Photo credit Michael Weatherall. It’s the end of the summer holidays. Teachers, like me, around the country are commiserating with each other as we face another long autumn term ahead.

For some, Christmas is an unwelcome fuss of awkward work parties and uncomfortable family get-togethers, for others, it’s the mince pie-eating, mistletoe-smooching highlight of the year. I think Christmas should give us all something to look forward to, a glow of colour and sparkle of glitter in the deep darkness of mid-winter. A halftime break
Amazing wasn’t it!? Wembley stadium housed a capacity crowd last night to watch England’s Lionesses defeat Germany in the Women’s European Championship Final. It was spectacular! The whole event was more than a sporting competition but a celebration of freedom, equality, and progress. Rather than larger louts swinging punches at each other, both sets of
It’s hard to talk of hope at times like these. It feels insincere, shallow, a little offensive even. After twenty years of fighting the Taliban, UK and US forces withdraw and, in doing so, surrender the advances made in Afghan human rights and democracy to a fundamentalist group that rules through fear and violence. Haiti,
In an attempt to survive Lockdown boredom, I decided to re-watch all of Disney’s feature-length films, from first to last, (yes, with 57 and counting, this could last a lifetime). I began with every intention of rolling my eyes at the endless display of helpless princesses that needed the aid of a prince and so
