Love & Coffee

A story about emotions...relationships...and the best damned drink on the planet.

Welcome...

In this crazy old fast-moving world, it’s nice to slow down, chill out, look around, and sip your way through a great cup of coffee. Maybe two.


It’s nice to have somewhere to go where the rough edge of life can’t get to you…and the smooth edge can give you all the time and space you need to be with the people you want to be with.


Love & Coffee is one of those rare creatures: a story about emotions and taste buds. About all the ups and downs of life squeezed into an ongoing chronicle and split into fascinating five minute reads. Or fifteen if you take it nice and slow. Perfect whether you have a short attention span…or a long one.


It’s a pick-me-up, put-me-down, never-lose-your-place kinda book about romance and coffee beans. About feeling good, trying not to feel bad, and listening to the kind of music that puts problems on the back burner, even if only for a little while.


It’s about looking back, looking forward, and looking right here, right now. About love won, love lost, love desperately needed, even love out of sight but definitely not out of mind.


It’s about great Espressos, Cappuccinos, Lattes, and Americanos. Intense relationships and casual friendships. Strangers who meet for half an hour then go their separate ways. And couples who mate for life and go everywhere together.


Love & Coffee is a sanctuary. One packed full of smiles and laughter, tears and heartaches, peace and quiet, passions and conversations. And good old fashioned thinking.


On the outside, it might seem like the story of an ordinary city centre coffee shop. On the inside, it’s a million miles away from ordinary. Maybe two.


And right at its heart, serving up the best damned drink on the planet, is Little Italy. Someone who doesn’t take any crap, never turns away anyone in need, and always seems to know more about everyone else than she lets on.


So come in and join me. Sit yourself down. Warm yourself up. See the world through my eyes…
