Ever wondered where the coffee in New Malden comes from?
I'm sat blogging in a coffee shop in New Malden right now. This Place
to be precise.
"Hello there" says a customer politely, before asking "where is your coffee from?"
"All over the world" the Korean barista succinctly replies.
The gentleman, sounding slightly more English, follows up: "and where is today's coffee from?"
Looking confused, the barista turns to confer with his colleague, whispering a few words in Korean, before turning back to reply with one word: "Monmouth" he says, with a cheery smile.
"And where is that?"
"It's a country!" says the barista confidently.
"No, it most certainly is not!" declares the gentleman, slightly raising his voice, and enunciating each syllable like a veteran BBC radio broadcaster. "I'll have you know that Monmouth is a small town in the heart of the Wye Valley, in Southeast Wales, though I sincerely doubt that is where this coffee comes from!"
Then utter silence.
