The 2017 Coffee Spot Calendars

My Therma Cup reusable cup and my Travel Press enjoy the view at the southern rim of the Grand Canyon.The Coffee Spot Calendar is now an annual event: this is the fourth year I’ve produced one. As before, the calendars are A4 in size and professionally-printed on glossy paper. Each month has a landscape, full-sized picture from one of my favourite Coffee Spots of the last 12 months, although this year my friend Keith has helped by choosing some of the pictures. As an added bonus, I’m also producing the Coffee Spot Lighting Calendar, something which I started last year with the help of my friend Sharon Reed, who has once again chosen most of the pictures.

Calendars cost £12.00 with a flat £2.00 postage and packing charge, regardless of how many you order. There are also discounts for multiple purchases. If you think we’re likely to meet up in the near future, I’ll even waive the postage and hand your calendar over in person! This is particularly relevant if you are going to La Marzocco’s Out of the Box on this Saturday (3rd December) since I’ll be there!

If you’re ordering from outside of the UK, then I’m afraid I have to charge more for postage and can’t offer any discounts for multiple purchases (unfortunately the charges increase rapidly with the weight of the package, unlike postage within the UK). For orders for Europe, postage and packing is £4.00 for one or two calendars, while for the rest of the world, it’s £6.00. If you want more than two, please get in touch regarding postage.


January 2017: This year’s Coffee Spot Calendars are sold out. Thanks to everyone who bought one (or more!). However, I can still print them on demand, so if you really want one, please get in touch and I’ll see what I can do. I can’t guarantee any prices though.

The gallery shows the Coffee Spots that are featured in this year’s calendar.

Unlike previous years, I’ve decided not to go for either pre-orders or for a limited print-run. Instead, I’m relying on my printer, Vistaprint, to continue to offer sensible prices in the run-up to Christmas, which makes it feasible for me to print orders on demand. I’ve still printed a number in advance which I can sell face-to-face but I’ll increasingly be relying in print-on-demand to fulfil your orders. Fingers crossed the printers don’t let me down!

As in previous years, there’s a simple ordering system so you can order and pay for your calendars on line. The baseline price is £12.00 for the full-sized, A4 calendar, while there’s also a desktop version for £8.00. So, if you’d like to get your hands on either the 2017 Coffee Spot Calendar or the 2017 Lighting Calendar, head over to the Coffee Spot Shop, decide exactly what you want, then click the “Buy Now” button.

I aim to start shipping the calendars as soon as I receive your orders, but since I’m away next week (5th – 12th December), there may be a slight delay. However, as long as you order by 12th December, you should have them in time for Christmas.
