We’ve all been there. We’ve all craved the perfect cup of coffee ... at an inconvenient time. A time when the perfect cup was either a) unattainable (and we had to make do with generic, shoddy cups), or b) we had no idea where to look for it. Well, if you happen to be in or around Teesside you only have to follow the Tees upstream all the way until you spot the majestic stone bridge of Yarm. And somewhere along the cobbled High Street you might spot a gingerbread man: the guardian of the North East’s mecca of coffee.
