The meeting place at St Pancreas Station in London, you can’t really miss it with this giant statue.
So this is #sublimesunday on a Tuesday - because I have spent three long days at an exhibition in London and couldn’t find the energy to post this until now. In fact the only reason I am doing it now is because I’m stuck on a train back north with a few hours to kill.
I don’t know the story behind this dude but he was popular for selfies lol.
The roof of the station is impressively high, there is a story behind it I’m told.
Outside and the streets of London are crazy full even at night with cars. And they all have horns - you know this because the drivers of London must use their horns every few minutes - it’s some sort of rule. Only place in the UK you will hear car horns with such regularity.
They have massive banks of these electric bikes, I think you rent them through an app but never tried. If you manage to cross the road avoiding cars, you are most likely to then get hit by a bike - I don’t advise crossing between stationary cars - I nearly got a bike up my butt a few times doing that!
These cranes were quite impressive - lit up and seeming to go from small to big.
And on to the coffee exhibition, the feature of this years event were cool espresso machines - led lighting and visible internals.
This is super cool, with the copper water boiler visible and illuminated - nice design by Conti
And the front is even better - Teflon Coated everything! I asked, it’s an optional extra but the Steem arms just need a quick wipe to remove milk residue - and doesn’t it look dope with that Matt black effect.
This partly dissembled machine was on a repair company stand - interesting to see what goes on inside to make them tick.
And this machine is just very very stylish, and expensive!
Now that’s the sort of quote you want on the back of your espresso machine. These faema’s have interchangeable back panels so you can change them round at will!
This made me laugh at the exhibition centre, the good old British telephone box.
Another stylish illuminated espresso machine.
And after a long two days talking about coffee roasters, it was time to put my exhibition stand back in it’s box so the shipping company could take it back to work for me. It’s a bit big to take as luggage on the train!
So that’s a few of the images from my trip to London, hopefully I will be back home before 11pm - and back to work 8am tomorrow!

The greatest challenge we face on Steem blockchain is getting our posts seen, I have always believed the simplest and best value way of doing this is by commenting on the blog posts of others, the more you engage people and interact with them the greater the chance they will visit your own blog and return the favour. Other then spending all my free time commenting on Steem blockchain posts, I also distribute coffee roasting machines and also espresso coffee machines and roast my own Speciality Coffee Range. being one of the premium coffee suppliers Yorkshire including a wide range of filter coffee sachets. Finally I have a dedicated website to my Artisan small batch roasted coffee featuring roast and post packs and super easy coffee subscriptions
