Now, it’s all very well having a stonkingly swish coffee maker, but it ain’t nothing without the right serving equipment, right? Be the host(ess) with the most(ess) and be good to your guests, and for once I’m not talking about biscuits or cake. Think of a coffee pot being like the icing on the cake, the ribbon on the gift, the cream in your coffee. Oh yes, coffee, that’s where we were. Coffee pots. There are lots of corkers about, out there roaming the high street. You just need to learn to spot them. I fear in our quest for contemporary living we’ve forgotten how to do tea time, but fear not, for with the Queen’s Jubilee soon to be upon us, I can think of no better time to reintroduce the ceremony. Now, shall I be mum?
