The 2018 Coffee Spot Calendars

The cover of the 2018 Coffee Spot Calendar. I visit the Great Wall of China, along with my Espro Travel Press and Therma Cup.The Coffee Spot Calendar is an annual event with this, the fifth Coffee Spot Calendar. As always, the calendars are A4 in size and professionally-printed on glossy paper, while there’s also a desktop version. Each month has a landscape, full-sized picture from one of my favourite Coffee Spots of the last 12 months, although this year, as he did last year, my friend Keith has helped by choosing some of the pictures.

Calendars cost £12.00 (£10.00 for the desktop version) with a flat £2.00 postage and packing charge, regardless of how many you order. 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! If you’re ordering from outside of the UK, then I’m afraid I have to charge more for postage. 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.

Unfortunately, work commitments have meant that I’m very late in producing this year’s calendars, so while I will do my best, I can’t guarantee they will arrive before Christmas.

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

As I did last year, 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. Just in case, I’ve printed a small number in advance which I can use to fulfil initial orders, 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 £10.00. So, if you’d like to get your hands on the 2018 Coffee Spot 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 them from the printers, but unfortunately, I can’t guarantee they will reach you before Christmas.

While I’m here, can I also remind you that I’ve got my new book, The Philosophy of Coffee, coming out in January. You can still pre-order signed copies direct from me.
