Jordan’s Thoughts Update: July 2018

Hello to the readers of Jordan’s Thoughts, its Jordan here and you may have noticed another drop in content going up on the site, It’s because of what I am going to be talking about today.

Since starting this blog, I have used Journaling/Jordan’s Thoughts as a way of expressing my creativity ahead of my next three years at university, now that my creativity will be getting used daily, I am going to scale back my work here slightly.

I will continue to write at least fortnightly, Yet this isn’t the only reason why the content has dropped again.

I am currently working a summer job, this job is a full-time job and working at least 6 days a week, I genuinely don’t have the time, nor the mental and physical capacity to write weekly.

However, while both of these are going on. I am in the process of completely overhauling Journaling/Jordan’s Thoughts, I am working on a complete redesign of the site as well as a new domain.

I want Journaling/Jordan’s Thoughts to be as professional as possible, therefore I have decided to rebrand the current “Jordan’s Thoughts” as Journaling Jordan’s Thoughts” or JJT for short.

Over the next month, while I take a break from writing to focus on getting my life ready for University, Jordan’s Thoughts will begin its transformation into JJT, This will conclude with the new domain being

All of my current content, Hot Drink Heaven, The Autistic Perspective, Analysis and opinion, and Orignal Reports will continue as normal.

Thank you all for standing by with JT and Ill be writing again in August, But for now, This has been Jordan’s Thoughts.


Hot Drink Heaven: A Fika For One

My life has been incredibly hectic as of late, I’ve started working full time for the summer before my upcoming university embankment, having to start at 07:00 on one week and on another at 14:00, Time to myself has become something sought after.

In my search for quality time, I stumbled upon the Swedish concept of Fika, in Swedish culture a Fika is a coffee break where we catch up with our peers and enjoy quality time together over a coffee and biscuits.

It’s a big social thing for the Swedish, similar to our concept of going on the sesh after work. But at this Fika its just going to be me and my faithful MacBook

A Fika wouldn’t be complete without the key element, coffee! And today’s Fika break is accompanied with the Taylors of Harrogate Fika blend. More mellow than my usual coffee type. Described as “A serene crisp roast with mellow flavours of toffee and hazelnut”.

The aroma of sweet toffee and the crunchy hazelnut shine through instantly. An enticing and beautiful combination, as the hot water landed on the grounds forming the delightfully dark colour.

After blending the coffee for 5 minutes, the plunge came down and the dark brown became a more relaxed light brown with the milk. That first sip and the gentle roast hits the tongue. The hazelnut and toffee compliment the caffeine. 

After each sip, I want more! So much so that I may make another, extending my Fika even further. Although it’s better with friends so I’ll stick to only one. A brilliant blend and one I’ll happily suggest when my friends come over and join me In a Fika.

Does into Hot Drink Heaven? No doubt what so ever 

Score? 5/5 

Will I drink it again?  Definitely even with or without friends
