Overnight Thermos Coffee at Foundation

I was recently invited to put Thermos well and truly to the test.

I woke up one glorious morning (seriously have you seen the sunrise at my new place?) to a mysterious tweet from @Thermos letting me know that I'd enjoy some lovely hot coffee that evening, which would still be warm the next day...

I arrived at the beautiful red brick building that houses The Foundation Coffee House in the Northern Quarter and settled down in front of my giant Thermos flask to have a sip of the coffee that was freshly brewed for me earlier that day. Delicious and hot!

We were ushered over to the main counter to be given excellent tuition in all things coffee. We were expertly taken through the steps to make delicious coffee using all of the weird and wonderful methods of brewing that Foundation has to offer.

We chose the beans we'd like to try, watched the processes from start to finish, and got to sample the final results - which were absolutely excellent, by the way! I had no idea that black coffee could have so many complex flavours. Colour me impressed.

Also, can we just take a moment to admire how gorgeous the interior design of The Foundation Coffee House is. There's something I find very soothing about natural textures and geometric designs. I love that this place breaks the mould of traditional coffee houses (I'm thinking cozy, warm & gently lit with comfy looking sofas). I found the open, airy and light atmosphere very calming and refreshing. It's almost as if the venue left me with a bit of 'pep in my step' - although maybe that was all the coffee!!

The next morning, I cracked open my Thermos flask to see if my overnight coffee was still warm. As promised (much to my surprise!), it was indeed still lovely and warm. A smooth and delicious cup of coffee with my first salted caramel brownie made for a very indulgent start to my morning.

Thank you so much to Thermos & Foundation for inviting me along to such a fantastic evening at a beautiful venue. I've definitely become a coffee convert, and my Thermos is now surgically attached to my arm! It's great to be able to make a hot drink during a busy day, and have it stay hot for hours.
