1st post of @ brianball 's list of 20 topics.                                                           (Partner post: The sounds of my favourite coffee shop.)


                                                                *    

Door opening

Hissing of the steam (2'56"). The smell of freshly ground coffee comes with it. MUCH more intense than the sound, but ok, not talking smells today... 

Coffee grinder. An electric one (1'50"), not the old wooden one.  

Many many clinkings: emptying used coffee to the bin (0'00"), cup meeting a saucer, spoon following her (second from the top), milk foaming (0'07"), spoons stirring sugar in, forks landing on the plates next to slices of banana bread and carrot cake...

Quiet or not so quiet discussions, which coffee has the fullest body, and which is natural, yet... still sweet. Orders being made. And remade. And remade again. And a bit more sugar please.

Chair scraping the wooden floor.

Toilet door being open. Toilet door being shut. Muffled sound of toilet flushing. Water running. Dryer humming.

"We sit MUCH TOO CLOSE close to the loo for fucks sake!!!"

Toilet door being open. Toilet door being shut.

Girls chatting. Whispering. A weird conversation. Two brotha from the hood crackin jokes. Omg, that guy wants to... buy a hooambuerguer... here...???

And... oh noooo! A little accident... And a more serious one... and an incident... 

And from the outside of the coffee shop distant sounds of Tv programme...

    @lucjah - some joking aside, this is an excellent example of how to get something written. I'm going to share it with my son.

    @lucjah this is excellent, I loved it! Crackin jokes are hilarious, but gosh it's unlikely to happen at KB, isn't it? 😁
    The little bonus is a gem! And that (h)appens on a daily basis there 😂
