Alma de Cuba Coffee Review
Corpulent Capers: Alma de Cuba Coffee

Over the years I’ve sampled many different coffees and visitors to Corpulent Towers have come to expect a decent cup to be served.  So much so that they only ever comment when what they get doesn’t live up the normal standards. So it was interesting when a cup of Alma De Cuba, prompted a fellow visiting coffee lover to exclaim [&hellip

McVitie’s Digestives – Stop Taking The Biscuit
Corpulent Capers: McVities Stop Taking The Biscuit

I’ve been around long enough to have seen many changes. I’m from the pre-internet, 3 terrestrial TV channel generation so I’ve learnt to embrace and even welcome change. I’ve even been known to wander round muttering “change is good, change is good”. Sometimes, however, change is just so blatantly and utterly wrong that you can do nothing but shout “WTF?” [&hellip
