A Spanish Breakfast...

Trojillos is a small village about 45mins north of Granada in southern Spain. Sarah's aunt owns a house that looks directly down a valley and into the olive groves that stretch as far as the eye can see.

At about 0830 every morning a van drives past with its horn blaring and it's the local baker! He sells a whole range of pastries and breads. We were in the middle of the Spanish countryside and completely off the tourist trail.

The patio was flooded with the early morning sun and we were grateful that we had such a relaxing start to each day we were there. Don't get me wrong, life is tough in this part of the world but our Mediterranean friends have got something right because everyone was so laid back.
Morning coffee was provided by Mozzo Coffee a company based in Southampton that is on a mission to play a positive part in the positive transformation of the coffee industry. It supplies to many companies in Hampshire but also to leading London hotels and the National Theatre.

Sitting back and taking in the view of all those olive trees made me think about another post - the humble olive and its part in the history of the world!
