The Blend Top Ten: highlights of our fantastic 2017


We’re not in the office over the Christmas period, the team has been given a break after a busy year so they can rest their batteries. So, we’ve come up with The Blend Top Ten – our personal top ten highlights since our launch in May and over the next ten days, we will be sharing these with you.

It’s worth mentioning now, though, all of those fantastic events and highlights that haven’t made the top ten. Like we keep saying, it’s been an incredible year for us and reducing this list to ten was a tough job!

The recent trip to Milan that Max and Michelle were invited on didn’t make the cut, nor did the team’s day out to the first ever Birmingham Coffee Festival back in the summer.

Max and Michelle also made a short flight up to Scotland for the Glasgow Coffee Festival and way back at the start of the year, Joe and Max were invited to be the judges of a latte art competition organised by Make It Ealing and hosted by the wonderful Artisan on Ealing Broadway.

The important thing is to remember that we’ve enjoyed every little thing about putting our seven issues together, so if you’ve met us or seen us around and that hasn’t made the top ten, please don’t be offended, we could’ve done a top 100 and still struggled to get everything in.

Anyway, thanks again for a fantastic year. We’re very much looking forward to creating new highlights in 2018, including the very first The Blend LIVE event.

Joe, Abbie, Max, Michelle and Craig
