Discover the Coffee Trail Book project which begins in North Wales this February!
“A Coffee Trail: Adventures with Coffee is a book devoted to recording and sharing human stories from the independent coffee house, starting with North Wales. Our mission is to introduce these remarkable, sometimes hidden, establishments to the wider world and praise what makes them such a great part of our community. We want to motivate people to be adventurous with coffee, make informed coffee house choices based on culture, company and personal taste, and create a work of art that people will enjoy for years to come.
Our motto is: good cheer, good company, great coffee.”
I am putting my passion for writing and illustrating to the test in this very British book series! If you’d like to get involved with this project, you can do so by taking part in our short survey to vote for your favourite British coffee house, by checking out our sweet campaign video to give us support on our quest, and sharing this page with your friends and family, for the love of coffee and beautiful books!
To put it plainly, to create this book, we need your help. We, being myself (Yvie), and a small team of creative, caffeinated culture enthusiasts who delight in exploring what makes people passionate about their industries. This project is reliant, in perhaps a naive and altruistic way, the vision of others getting behind us and cheering us on with donations! We’re crowdfunding, and it’s real. No funds, no book. Take a journey with us, in this 150th anniversary year of Alice in Wonderland, onto a trail that could lead to the relationship coffee utopia of many, and the creative outlet for many more.
This project is being created through community stories, to engage us with the mystical world of coffee, coffee houses, baristas, latte art and those illustrious and sometimes underground festival that take place in the corners of the country. Let’s bring this beautiful culture to the surface and share it!
