Just when we're all ready for a holiday, it looks like international travel is still off-the-cards this summer. But all hope is not lost! Let us take you on a journey across the world to experience food and drink culture, interesting insights into inspirations behind our menu, and recipes. Travel wouldn't be the same without a soundtrack for each city we visit, so we'll be dropping in some Spotify playlists to make you feel like you're right there.

Your travels over the next 5 weeks will span all 5 continents. Discover coffees from Central America and Africa. Enjoy European and Middle Eastern food influences and of course, a trip to Australia & New Zealand to discover the more recent inspirations behind so many cafes and coffee shops in the UK today.
