A SERIES OF THOUGHTS AND MUSINGS FROM CASTLE ROCKIANS DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS.
This week’s blog post comes from our friends at Stewarts Coffees (who provide the delicious coffee we serve in our pubs).
Hello Castle Rock family! Greetings from the roastery. Friday, a time we’d usually be rushing round filling bags and boxes to stock up venues for a busy weekend, the coffee van screeching in an out of the market to pick up for more deliveries, some quality banter at the packing desk in anticipation of a couple of days enjoying the sunshine, then some frantic tidying and sweeping up of rogue coffee beans before a much-anticipated pint.
I say usually…! Bit different now though, ain’t it? We’ve gone from “wtf” to “wfh”, and we’re all glued to the news for the green light to freedom!
Like the rest of your blogs on your website though, we’re not at home to “doom-and-gloom”. We’ve got plenty of reasons to be cheerful.
Want some more positives? The sun’s out more often now so you can justify cracking open that first beer a little earlier than usual!
So, make sure you live in those tatty shorts whilst you can. Keep clapping key-workers. Say hello to the postie. Make bread, paint stuff, drink great beer…and great coffee!
Speaking of which, you know we’re missing the Castle Rock crew, so we’d love you to make the most of “castlerockcoffee” – a 20% discount code on coffee ordered via our website: www.stewartscoffees.co.uk.
Now might be the time to try to try some different coffees. Current faves of ours are some stunning African coffees from Uganda and Ethiopia. Put the code in at checkout. Spread the good word amongst your gang. We’ll post out the coffee, or you can pick up from the roaster (don’t worry, we’ll shout nicely at you from a distance!).
Stay safe, stay positive…and see you at the bar soon!
