A love of coffee?
That’s not just the case for a new generation of young people.
If you visit one of London’s iconic cafes and are able to chat up the barista, you’re likely to end up talking to a love of the stuff.
It may sound silly, but this is not new to the world of cafe culture.
In recent years, the trend has become even more widespread, with the UK’s coffee market accounting for nearly a quarter of the country’s coffee imports, according to Coffee Association data.
According to The Guardian, a recent survey found that about 15% of Londoners surveyed said they’ve made a coffee trip.
So, why do we care?
Well, a coffee drinker’s social circle is probably the most important factor in getting coffee.
It’s a shared experience that could have a lasting effect on your relationship, and it’s likely that you’ll be the one to introduce your love of espresso to your new friends.
The love of it, however, doesn’t have to come from an espresso bar.
Just take a moment to explore the cafe you’re most likely to meet a love for.
If you don’t see your preferred cafe on the map, there’s probably a coffee place in your neighbourhood.
Even if you can’t make it there, take a walk and make your way through the cafes you’ll meet your new love of barista.
A coffee lover’s best friendThe number one takeaway from the survey, however?
The cafe you’ll find the most love for is the coffee shop.
It could be because it’s a new place to visit, or it could be due to your love for a particular coffee, like the classic La Folie.
If it’s the former, you might just find a love in a new coffee shop, with one of your favourite coffee roasters being a part of your new favourite group.
Alternatively, you may find the cafe that your loved one frequents is the cafe of your dreams.
The fact that your love interest might not always be the most popular with your friends may have an effect on whether or not you’ll have the time to meet the person you’ve been wanting to talk to.
If you’re unsure, try to avoid visiting a cafe that’s a known destination for people who have a particular affinity for the coffee.
A coffee enthusiast’s best friendsIf you’ve just arrived at a coffee cafe, and you want to chat about your new coffee, there are many things you can do to ensure you’re having a really good time.
For starters, make sure you check out the baristas who work there.
They’ll often be more welcoming than the bar staff, and might be the ones you want in your corner.
Alternatively if you’ve never been to a coffee bar before, you can ask a regular to take you to one.
The baristas might be a little nervous about showing you around, so make sure they know that you’re not looking to just talk.
A love of foodThere are many reasons why you might want to get coffee to your favourite cafe, but the love of eating something may be the biggest factor.
There are two main reasons why your love might come to your attention, and both of them can be summed up in one word: food.
In the UK, there is a growing obsession with food.
This can be seen in the fact that London is the capital of Britain’s food and drink industry, with many of the world’s top restaurants having opened in the capital.
But even if you aren’t a fan of food, there will still be plenty of reasons why the love for coffee might be there.
For example, coffee is often a social activity, and many people find it much easier to get to know someone at a cafe.
If the bar isn’t a regular hangout for you, it might be easier to befriend someone in your local area.
There’s also the fact coffee is a great way to socialise.
With a small group of friends, you’ll feel like you’re part of a more intimate group.
And there are other reasons why people might choose to come to a cafe to chat.
Some people may have come for a few drinks to socialize, while others might just want to talk.
The love for food, in the end, isn’t all that difficult to understand.
It’s something that’s universal, and is something that all of us are born with.
So, if you love coffee, it’s time to get your love one-on-one.
You might not have a favourite cafe yet, but there are plenty of other places that are just as good.
You can chat up one of the bar owners or the bar manager, or you can just sit down with a friend to get a taste of what your new cafe has to offer.
There you go, you’ve made it.
