feast news

We said recently that we were revamping the business. First a new coffee machine, now air conditioning and heating - should be fully working next week. And there's more to come!

Christmas has come to Feast! The shop was decorated over the weekend and mince pies have been baked and are ready for you to buy. They taste extra nice with a freshly brewed coffee from our new machine!.

The Christmas special will now be on sale until the end of the festive season. By popular demand we offer the same one every year and for those of you who have forgotten its turkey, stuffing, mayo, cranberry sauce and crunchy green salad.

Merry Christmas!

Tuesday 2nd December Is "Giving Tuesday" This means that companies, charities, students and families around the world get together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and give something back. As you may know, Lepra is a Colchester based international charity whose offices are within a stone's throw of the shop. Lepra focuses on people who find themselves trapped by disease (including leprosy which is completely curable), poverty and prejudice and help them to improve their health, lives and livelihoods.

So here's what we're going to do and how you can help. Basically you just need to buy this week's special sandwich or baguette which is goat's cheese, onion marmalade and rocket. We will donate all the profits from sales of the special throughout the week to Lepra. We've chose this sandwich as its a favorite of Sarah Nancollas who is the CEO of Lepra.

This week's homemade soup is spicy sweet potato and coconut. As with all our food, we've tried it and its delicious.

And finally, the new coffee machine is working! Please buy a cup and let us know what you think.

Coffee machine tuning in progress! We'll be pinging off the walls soon!

We've got quite a lot to tell you about this week ... sorry, but it's exciting!

Firstly the usual weekly stuff. This week (w/c 24 November) the special sandwich or baguette is roast beef and tomato with Colman's English mustard. The Kirsty-made soup is carrot and corriander.

Secondly, assuming the wind is in the right direction our new coffee machine should be delivered today. It'll take a day or two to tune in (apparently this is quite straightforward - let's hope so!) and then we'll be ready to go, or brew. For you coffee machine geeks out there it's a Jura Impressa XJ9 Professional bean to cup machine and it's made in Switzerland, apparently the Swiss have a great reputation for making coffee machines.

Lastly, in case you haven't noticed we are now stocking posh popcorn which is handmade by those nice people at Portlebay Bay in Devon. At the moment we are doing three flavours, cinnamon swirl, crispy bacon with maple syrup and lastly lemon sherbert. They are just 85p per packet, so please try them, they're delicious!
