Double Espresso - Design Inspiration

Double Espresso - Design Inspiration

July 04, 2016

There’s something special about being up early and out and about before the rest of the world starts to stir. That special morning light as the sun starts to warm up, a slight chill making the air somehow seem cleaner than usual, and everything just slightly quieter and more peaceful.

Double Espresso was inspired by these early morning starts. For so many reasons being out on the bike just after dawn on a summer’s day is a special experience. But we’re not super human, and a welcome morning caffeinated pick me up is the order of the day.

For us, morning departures on the bike often include a trek somewhere; a little expedition like bike packing across the border to the Belgian coast line, cycling to visit family or travelling to a friend's wedding by bike. 

Having coffee on cycling trip

The peace and quiet can't be more rewarding than when you're out pedalling your bike as you see the sun rise, feel the dawn on your eye lashes and see the wildlife around you awaken. Just like our cravings for caffeine, these rides tend to become rather addictive.
