Goodbye from the Grumpy Kiwi!

I’m sure you will agree that there is nothing better than a grumpy face to serve you your coffee on those horrible, dank January mornings?! Sadly you will have to make do with a slightly more upbeat welcome to Church Street from now on as I am leaving the country to return to New Zealand – Auckland to be precise.

Although I am not planning to continue my career in the coffee world, I have chosen to apply for a new career renowned for extended coffee breaks-the New Zealand Fire Service! This news shocked some Urbanista’s who, after suffering the effects of my assistant managerial skills, appear to think that I am better at starting metaphorical fires than putting them out!

Even though they may be glad to see the back of me I will dearly miss them and all of you lovely customers who have made me smile more than I may have let on! I have absolutely loved my time with Urban, I wish you guys all of the luck in the world for the future.

If any of you ever find yourself in Auckland please find me @grumpykiwi and we’ll reminisce whilst knocking back a few flatties!
