About Time - The Home of Local Roasted Coffee

I am raising funds to help towards the cost of setting up the coffee bar and the cost of the espresso machine, the heart of the coffee bar

by Bobbi Fisher in Kendal, Cumbria, England

We did it
On 17th September 2018 we successfully raised £665 with 19 supporters in 28 days

~Well this is it, this is actually happening, no more let downs by Estate agents, landlords or tenants changing their minds, I have the keys, I'm in and work has started. 

~Why 'About Time'? Everything about coffee is about time! about its growth, when it's harvested. About the time it takes to roast it, about the time it takes to make the Espresso, steam the milk and taking the time to enjoy the coffee. It's about time to catch up with friends and family. And let's be honest, it's About Time.

 ~I want 'About Time' to become the Home of Local Roasted Coffee in Kendal and the South Lakes area, celebrating the wealth of local coffee roasting experience we have here in the Lake District within a 20 mile radius of our location. I will also be using Local drinks manufacturers and bakers within the area focussing on local independent business. 

~The building itself is situated within the New Shambles, a characterful and historic street of butchers shops now home to 11 friendly, independent artisan and specialist shops. 

~I want to create a place where new local artists and budding musicians can showcase themselves by displaying their artwork and hosting music afternoons/evenings. And a place where you can come and take 5 to enjoy a coffee and a sweet treat. 

~I have always had a passion for coffee, I have worked in a few different types of coffee houses and have been trained to a Barista Maestro level. I am always visiting new ones in places I visit and have spent many an hour or more sitting in them writing out my dreams. 

~Well now it seems is my time, my time to let others come sit and write their dreams. 

~In return for your pledges you can recieve some fantastic rewards such as: 

- An invite to the opening of About Time 

- Your own reusable take out cup 

- A Barista experience for you and a friend 

- Free coffee for life!

 ~Many Thanks for your support and I look forward to making a coffee for you in the future. Bobbi x
