From London to Milan

Early mornings need many early coffee’s and yesterday was definitely one of those early mornings! With the suitcases in our hand we stroll around Fulham Road towards a little cafe named Muni. I will be forever in love with their coffee! If you have read my article about this amazing little cafe you will definitely understand why!

While taking the last sip of my coffee we stood up and got ourselves together to make our way to the airport. My next coffee was going to be in the country where espresso’s are a way of life, a holy grail that everyone gets a taste of every single day. Soon I would be drinking my coffee while overlooking the lake of Como and Lugano!

As the doors of the plane open you could feel the warmth on your skin. The air is tight and hot, how I have missed those summer nights. I’m glad to be spending my next few days breathing in the warm air, diving into the cold lake. Feeling the hot sun burn on your skin while eating the best home-made ice-cream in a small street next to the lake overlooking the boats as they go past.

Como is definitely a place to visit when you are in love with Italy as much as I am. It has the prettiest roads to get lost in. The best ice-cream places scattered all over the place. The most beautiful views as you eat your fresh pasta and finish with a delicious coffee. You can feel the vibe, the atmosphere is relaxed and flowing. The heat keeps everyone mellow. The coffee keeps everyone busy. The food keeps everyone happy. And the views keeps everyone smiling. Especially compared to London, I feel that people here live a much happier life. – But lets be honest, how could you not be happy here! London is beautiful don’t get me wrong, but people end up living a much more stressful life. (Even I got caught up in the lifestyle) When was the last time you didn’t had to risk your life by crossing the street? When was the last time you sat down with a pasta and a glass of wine and really, but really tasted every single bite and took your time to enjoy the flavours? In Italy you almost get pressured by the waiter to talk about how good your food really was, and if you didn’t finish your plate they ask “why?”, “did you not like it?”, “ARE YOU OK?” People really live in the moment. And I believe that this is extremely important in life. That is when you are at our happiest.

So for the next few days I will be exploring the different roads, the lakes, the cafes, everything that makes a true Italian happy. – And what will probably make me so happy that I will end up staying here. ( I could fit right in right? Blue eyes, caramel skin, dark hair, not too tall of length.. let me just put on my lace navy Dolce & Gabbana dress while I sip on my espresso and ill just secretly blend in..) Allora.. ciao tutti, a domani! Tanti Bacci!

BEST COFFEE IN CHELSEA at Muni Coffee cafe

After drinking many (but many, many) coffee’s in different restaurants and cafe’s in Chelsea, I have now discovered the ultimate place to get your golden brew!!

I walked past it many times and always wanted to go in but somehow I always had to run past it having no time to sit down. So I repeatedly told myself “ok, I’ll definitely go next time”. And so 2 days ago that time finally came!! – And now I repeatedly tell myself “why didn’t you go earlier!! WHY!!!”

Muni is a beautiful cafe located on Fulham road. With seats both inside and outside you can distinguish the tanned sun lovers sitting outside in the heat, from the shadow seekers crowded around the ventilators inside. But both with a smile on their face, as they are sipping on their cup of coffee brewed to perfection.

Muni is owned by a couple who found their passion in coffee and decided to share this passion by bringing the best coffee from the farms in the Philippines all the way to London! “Filipino arabica is one of the finest coffees in the world. And yet, no specialty coffee shop in London serves it. We thought it’s about time that changes and started Muni! We want Muni Coffee Shop to be a place to share great tasting coffee, but even more than that, to be a place to share and appreciate life.” – And appreciate we definitely do! The only thing that I would like to say is, thank you! Thank you for sharing your dream with us and creating the opportunity of letting us taste a little bit of heaven!

Apart from their amazing coffee, (which should already be a reason to run to Fulham road right now) they also have insanely tasty cakes, brioches, bowls, juices and many more deliciousness! It is the perfect place to go and visit anytime of the day and they offer something that anyone will love! Have a vegan banana bread, a Ube cookie (a delicious fruity cookie, a Filipino delicacy- which you HAVE to try), or try a fancy avocado on toast! They offer a perfect combination between original and delicious recipes, and recipes that come straight from the Philippines! – Which for sure will blow your mind!! (Seriously, go try the Ube cookie!!)
