Lovely words on a coffee cup…

When in Vancouver in May, we visited a great indie called Milano, very much at the heart of West Coast indie culture. We drank one of their lovely stove top coffees and their takeout cup contained some lovely words.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a positive mantra on your coffee cup every morning!

Vodcast: Coffee Birmingham meets Urban Coffee Company

In the build up to September 29th, we will be doing a series of videos to celebrate Birmingham’s independent scene. First up, the guys at Urban Coffee Company invited me over to film. Armed with the power cameras on my tab and my phone, I made the best use of the footage I had to put this together.

Please excuse my meagre creative skills. I am not a filmmaker. In fact, I used Windows Live Movie Maker to do this.

What I want to do though these films is to capture an appreciation for indies across the city. Thanks to Peter for using his drama school training to good effect (!) and to the team of Urbanistas who were happy to commit their talents to film.

To those whose faces appear in the videos, please let me know so we can credit you as an #indielove person. It would be good to know who your name beyond being Urban customers.

More to come next week.

As you may have noticed on the front page of the website, on August 10th, Coffee Birmingham is uniting with the official Birmingham #Jelly to launch a #Superjelly. Some of you are possibly wondering what a Jelly is. So here are two perspectives from the Superjelly organisers.

First, Coffee Birmingham founder, Tim Wilson explains here in relation to #JellyLincoln, which he also runs on a monthly basis.

Second, here’s a piece from the Enterprise Nation site by official Birmingham Jelly organiser, Rickie Josen which backs up Tim’s comments.
