The Coffee Run: Yesterday I woke up in the morning feeling a sense of impending doom. It was one of those days when everything seemed to be going wrong. As I rushed to get ready for work, I spilled coffee on my favourite shirt. Frustrated and disheartened, I trudged towards the Islington overground station, hoping that the rest of the day wouldn’t be as disastrous as its beginning.
At station the aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafted through the air, offering a glimmer of comfort amidst my chaotic morning.
As I approached the counter, a warm smile greeted me.
I ordered a cappuccino, and told the barista that I want a good one that is worth a picture and to write about it, hopping make my day better.
“Well, I’ve got just the thing to turn your day around,” the barista said cheerfully. “How about a cup of our arti cappuccino? It’s called “arti” It’s smooth & rich cappuccino with arti look.
Feeling a little more optimistic, I struck up a conversation with the barista. I discovered that his name was Seren, a talented young music producer with dreams of making it big in the industry.
We had a short conversation but I found myself forgetting the challenges I had faced that morning. It was as if the world around ceased to exist, replaced by the harmony of our conversation.
Before parting ways, I thanked Seren for brightening my day. I took the train with a renewed sense of purpose and a belief that things would eventually fall into place.
The coffee had not only been a delightful blend of flavours but had also served as a catalyst for a memorable encounter. It is good to remember and try find solace and inspiration in the simple pleasures of life.
And so, amidst the chaos of my morning, I had stumbled upon a hidden gem—a coffee shop in the Islington overground station that offered not only exceptional coffee but also the opportunity for creative connections on the run.
