    All that guff about coffee is the same shit that people sneer at when they talk about artisan bread and novelty cereal - we're all swimming in the same sewage.

    It's the estate agents and property developers who did that.

    What guff about coffee? I won't pay stupid money for fancy coffees but I've drunk a lot of coffee in my life and as long as the beans aren't over roasted, it was ground relatively recently and it's a quickish brewing method then it's a much sweeter, tastier drink than pre-ground in a drip machine and a completely different thing to instant. It makes me happy and it's readily available in reasonably priced establishments and at home. If you enjoy sweet colourfully packaged cereals then good luck to you, it's readily available in supermarkets across the country and even served in lots of normal cafés.

    You can get coffee in supermarkets too.

    Yes. I get mine from supermarkets.

    But when you go drink it in a caff, you pay more.

    Up to £1.50. I would turn up my nose at coffee in a cafe for over 2 quid on all but a very special occasion and always if I was having it alone.

    I can't say I'm bothered if someone wants to try it. Shops can be profitable with all kinds of business models. Here's one that sells all kinds of soda pop:

    So you could have a couple of cups of coffee and OU could have a bowl of cereal but he'd be wasting his money? :D

    We've got a milkshake shop near us that makes milkshakes out of sweets. It's fun. The kids and students LOVE it. It was called Shakey Jakes. Jake fucking hated milkshakes, students and I suspect kids. He sold it eventually. It's called Shake It now but doesn't have the same ring to it and Jakes missed.

    Three quid a pop but worth it. They were like a big pudding each!

    they have grey hair but dark beards :hmm:

    tbh, I can't get upset about this - Hackney has been going this way for years, can't imagine going to this place, and Brick Lane has changing for years - don't they have a beach in one of the bars there in the summer?

    I think its worse than grey hair and dark beards. I think its actually blonde highlights and dark beards.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Depends on the context. Some of those "sneers" are "what the fuck?"-ness at someone paying £6+ for a loaf of bread - it's a bit of a shock to the system when you can only afford to pay 20% of that at maximum for your loaf. If I want a sourdough rye bread, I have to make it myself, and the most "novelty" my cereal gets is "Choco Shells" from Lidl. :)

    TBF, I turn my nose up at all coffee, since my gastric ulcer. 20 years coffee-free!

    Open letter on their Facebook page:
    Can't help feeling it's all a bit adolescent; "oh, I'm responsible for everything, am I?!", "the worst person in the world" :facepalm: I'm pretty sure that's not what the reporter was saying, more that he was asking questions about how much they'd considered where and what they were setting up.

    I do think it was a bit of a dick move to ambush the guy in the middle of a very busy opening day, but the fact it seemed like he hadn't even considered the issues didn't reflect well on him either.

    He is not to blame, no, him and others are meerly exploiting an oppotunity...his attitude and toys out of the pram letter speak volumes though. They were courting the media in the run up to the launch, now it was the wrong time to interview him? No, he's just upset because the interview showed him up for not having the slightest clue where he has set up business.

    Tbf, It's quite ballsy to do an open letter when you write in the style of a petulant 5 year old.
