July is around the corner which means it's time for a new playlist at the Hope & Glory roastery. Here's a list of what we'll be listening to on a typical day and whilst roasting and packing your online coffee orders, why not download them for yourself?
Abba – Does Your Mother Know
First thing we like to do in the morning is put a moka pot on the stove and use this song to recreate the intro to Johnny English (including toothbrush air guitar).
Len – Steal My Sunshine
This song takes us back to the late nineties, when we wore sideways baseball caps (which we still do from time to time!). Great for a reminiscent sing-a-long on the way to work.
Frank Sinatra - The Coffee Song
We love putting on a bit of Frank and making a filter coffee whilst we wait for the roaster to heat up.
Daft Punk – Lose Yourself to Dance
When the caffeine starts to take hold and the roaster is going full tilt, it’s hard not to bust out some moves.
The Heavy – Short Change Hero
Something a bit more rhythmic and chilled is great for bagging up coffee orders.
Meat Loaf – You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth
Our Tommy loves some passion and romance whilst we’re round the cupping table, tasting the day’s roasts, he says it embodies his feelings for coffee and the rest of the team.
The Strokes – Under Cover of Darkness
Julian Casablancas’ voice helps us pour better latte art. Fact.
Lorde – Tennis Court
Something chilled for the wind down, whilst we do paperwork and clean down the roaster.
Nightmares On Wax – You Wish
Relaxing music for the drive home, now that all the caffeine has left our systems.
Tracy Chapman – Fast Car
A bit of Tracy Chapman before bed never hurt.
