Happy New Year from Rijo42

We’d like to wish all our customers a very happy and prosperous 2016, and to thank you all for your custom in 2015. For a bit of festive fun, we’ve put together our ideal playlist – featuring top songs about coffee.

  1. Black Coffee by Sarah Vaughan. With lyrics by Paul Francis Webster, this song, released in 1949 by American jazz singer Sarah Vaughan, features the lyrics, ‘I walk the floor and watch the door and in between I drink…black coffee.’
  2. One More Cup of Coffee by Bob Dylan. From the Desire album, the song tells the story of a man who must leave the girl he loves. It features the chorus ‘One more cup of coffee for the road/One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go. To the valley below.’
  3. The Coffee Song by Frank Sinatra. Released in 1946, this song celebrates Brazilian coffee culture with the famous verse ‘Way down among Brazilians/Coffee beans grow by the billions/So they’ve got to find those extra cups to fill/They’ve got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil.’ That’s our kind of song!
  4. You’re the Cream in my Coffee by Nat King Cole. Written in 1928, this lively love song is a reminder that anything can be improved with the right partnership – the coffee-and-cream comparison will strike a note with coffee lovers. ‘You’re the cream in my coffee/You’re the salt in my stew/You’ll always be my necessity/I’d be lost without you.’
  5. Coffee and Cigarettes by Otis Redding. One of the tracks on the Soul Album, released in 1966, the singer describes how much better his life is since he met the love of his life. The song contains the lines ‘I’m sittin’ here talkin’ with my baby/Over cigarettes and coffee, now’, and conjures up that cosy feeling perfectly.Don’t forget that at Rijo42 we stock a wide range of coffee beans and accessories for your coffee machines – take a look at our range at www.rijo42.co.uk.
