Newbury - The demise of the kettle in the workplace.

Whatever happened to the kettle for the staff in the shops and offices in Newbury town centre?

Every morning between eight and nine you can see people hurrying to work clutching their precious cups of expensive designer coffees purchased from the multitude of coffee shops that have sprung up in recent years.

A jar of Nescafé, a bag of sugar and a carton of milk (along with the kettle) always used to suffice.

Number 6

As a tea drinker (who believes it must be made fresh with a kettle refilled with newly filtered water - I hate the taste of Chlorine - that is poured straight after coming to the boil) the whole coffee thing has passed me by. Certainly the personal economics of buying several drinks a day at the prices charged would be ruinous whereas I can enjoy several cups of self made tea for a very reasonable price overall. Each to their own however.
Be seeing you ;-)
