Winter rain in Lisbon calls for a bit of interior preoccupation. So initiates the investigation of the 7th floor Restaurant Bar of Hotel do Chiado. Understated yet sophisticated, it’s apt for an afternoon chat with friends or for a quiet read of your favourite journal with a bit of tea. Shortlink http://eeb.me/PYjDR

I wake to the sound of air, getting thin in flight; And the intangible blur, where shadow kisses light; Hear, withering skies, do you? The fallings of my vagabond dream, and morning dew. It’s an institution, therefore capitalised: Brunch. It’s sacred and holy, marking the boundaries between the nightmarish business week spent smiling at imbeciles,...

I then found myself in Berlin drinking prosecco in the company of fashionables in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tent....

Remember Folgers? I resist an urge to gag. I point to those commercials where the dead are resurrected (noted: by the suspicious whisps of invading steam) and zombie out of bed to the tiled kitchen island to sip their American sized mugs of brackish liquid. Well I weep to add, I’ve never had those endearing...

OK, so you really desire an Anderson&Sheppard or a Kilgour but since it’s a bit out of your price range, you don your paper thin summer suit for lack of anything better in looking autumn-dapper. You step out into the cold winter air and will perish from pneumonia or frost bitten toes. But don’t despair...

If you know me, then you know already knew this post was coming up. Me: a caffeine junkie of only the highest Direct Trade…stuff. So lately, I’ve taken to hand grinding my own coffee and brewing stovetop espresso. I grew up waking with the sound of coffee being ground in the mornings, so it’s rather...
