In a very short version of the story …. We both wanted jobs in London, where we both went to Uni. After around 20 interviews travelling back and forth from Swansea to London between us both , rejection after rejection, we turned around to each other and said we cant do this anymore, the time and money we were wasting was too much. Lets just go for it, skip a few years of our ‘5 year plan’ and open up our own place.
After us both living in London for 3 years for Uni we got hooked onto the modern coffee culture. Visiting a new roasteries and coffee shop every weekend, with the dream of opening our own in Swansea one day.
We wanted to create a place that represented our Backgrounds (especially Beths) coming from a 5 Generations Farming family and still living at the same farm in Pontarddullais. We tried to incorporate farming into the style of the café and the design of our menu. Our Full English Breakfast is even served the way Beths Granddad used to eat it, straight out of the pan. ‘Farmers have no time for plates’.
