Black and strong or creamy and smooth
Our early morning terrors it soothes
The rich taste and pleasant aroma
Brings us round from our overnight coma
‘Put the kettle on’ is our families favourite phrase
It’s a welcome accompaniment to all sorts of days
If you’re tired, hosting guests, having a moment's peace or getting stressed
The beautiful full-bodied coffee is always best!
