Bentley Mulsanne Speed. Don’t make excuses. Make plans.

Don’t make excuses. Make plans.Driving when under the influence of alcohol or anything else that impairs your judgement is a stupid idea. Not because you might hurt yourself (that’s on you), but because when you inevitably screw up, you’re more than likely to take...

Grown Ranger. Free Range Beef

Grown Ranger. Free Range Beef

We have to admit that our collective C&M ears pricked up at this one. A Ranger version of our favourite B-road racer, the Ford SVT F-150 Raptor. And by ‘B’-road, we mean Baja, Mexico. So you get the off-road chops and Raptorised aggression of the full-house US...

Operation THINK! Expect the unexpected.

Operation THINK! Expect the unexpected.

‘Expect the unexpected’ is an unofficial motto of all Emergency and Rescue Services. Why? Because accidents are messy, confusing and complicated - you can’t take anything for granted. But you never really know what it feels or looks like until it happens. So how do...

Honda CB1000. Neo Sports Café

Remember Storm Gareth from a few weeks ago? Not my favourite weather front, if I’m being honest. Oh, I told myself I’d be okay. Clenched my fists, put on a brave face, braided my hair, got on my bike and ventured up Fosse Way to go and meet Jack at Idle Torque. I’d...

Project #hoondai. Step 2. Take a deep breath

If you remember the last instalment of The Saga of Hoondai we talked about how we had made some changes to the chassis of the i30N to create something more suited to our specific needs and wants, and this time we’re off to Goodwood to actually put those changes to the...

Finding solace. Destination Brittany. Porsche 993RS.

‘Breathing’ has become imperative to me over the last few years. The intensity of a start-up can really take it out of you and that burning itch to get away from it once in a while rears its head. Sometimes I just wake up in the morning and the desire for a road trip...

It’s about the people. It always is. So we’ll start with the humans at MZR before we get to the cars. The generous, welcoming and slightly brilliant Rahail Tariq and Martin Ryland and their small team of craftspeople may be operating from a careworn industrial estate...

The Bentley Mulsanne Speed. Our take on being responsible.

There are challenges with country pubs. We understand them and then discussed the ultimate solution - a chauffeur driven super limo. Or a pub in your own house. But what do we do it in? That again took hours of debate and back and forth. It had to be a Bentley!...

Caffeine&Machine. The beginning. Praemio. #riskandreward

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a dream. Four years later, that dream is a reality. Unfortunately, birthing a real place from the chaotic imagination of Phil McGovern required financial crisis, several mortgages, a series of happy coincidences, a...

Project #hoondai. Step 1, boingy bits

The i30N is a pretty spectacular thing out of the box, as anybody who pays any attention to the motoring press will already know. But no matter how good the car, manufacturers always work to broad constraints, which can lead to compromises. Luckily for us, that means...

The road to Caffeine&Machine. An owners perspective. Pt1

Hello everyone, my name is Phil McGovern, one of the owners of Caffeine&Machine. Up until now I’ve been hiding in the shadows, sweeping the carpark or getting lost in my own thoughts, thinking about what on earth has happened since we swung the doors open to...

Mourning the weekend. Storm Gareth was a very naughty boy.

Storm Gareth was a very naughty boy. After being battered by Gary and his pointless gale-force winds last week, the tipi did its full weird flex and required re-battenning every day. Then, just as we thought we were past the worst, Gareth the Idiot Weatherfront threw...

Ford Mustang. Last of the V8 manuals.

Mustangs. Iconic staple of American culture, blue-collar performance car, long-serving legend. I love the fact that they’re cheap (even relatively cost-effective in the UK), love the fact that they’re rear-wheel drive and long-bonneted, love the styling generally....
