Retro Coffee

If you like Retro Coffee machines then here is something to really roast your beans. Talking of Coffee, if you live in the UK, you may remember a highly successful set of soap-like TV Ads for Nestcafe Gold Blend. They featured Antony Head as the male lead (well known to Buffy fans).

Inspired by the idea that the British found instant coffee romantic and sexy, I published a ‘tongue in cheek’ serial in a specialist computer magazine, based on a product called 'Cheapsavers' Gold. Unfortunately, the publishers pulled the plug after 2 episodes (serials and romantic fiction were not really where the magazine was at).

If you want to see the original Ads (video) or follow the serial beyond the two episodes, Click here to read Coffee! - The serial.

I’m an Engineer and Training Analyst who has given up full time work to pursue my own interests. Part of my strategy to manage my income, in these days of UK pension freedoms, has been to move into Peer to Peer Lending. I’ve therefore created a blog to share my experiences, good and bad, of this exciting and lucrative new industry.
