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
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.

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
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.

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
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!
