There’s nothing like starting your morning with a fresh cup of coffee and for some of us, it’s the only way to start the day on the right foot.
Without that first cup, we just wouldn’t function – does this ring true for you?
Iced coffee and cold brew blends are somewhat of a newly-popular phenomenon though, hence making them not everyone’s preference, but as temperatures are set to soar this week across the UK, even reaching highs of 30 degrees in some places, there really couldn’t be a more appropriate chance to try cold coffee out for size.
If you fancy getting on board with that, then we’ve found a homemade cold brew coffee maker on Amazon and it’s perfect for a refreshing start to summer mornings.
The Elegant Life Cold Brew Coffee Maker is impeccably designed and incredibly versatile.
It has a sleek round-shaped carafe, handle and spout to help you pour coffee easily and reduce accidental spills.
According to the product description on Amazon, it’s really easy to brew the perfect cup by “scooping 14 to 16 tablespoons of your favourite coarsely-ground coffee beans into the filter, filling with water and putting it in fridge for 12-24 hours”.
It has a stainless steal filter, which is “the best choice for coffee brewing” as it “can avoid blocking and excess oil residue”, a silicon sealing design to “keep your cold brew coffee fresh for weeks” and an “airtight lid [to] avoid losing flavor or freshness”.
It doesn’t just have to be for cold brew coffee though.
As mentioned, it’s an extremely versatile product and is perfect for preparing and serving all sorts of cold drinks such as water, milk, iced tea, coffee, lemonade, juice and wine or anything else that suits your imagination.
It also has a 1L / 35oz volume capacity, so it’s ideal for serving family or entertaining guests.
It’s retailing on Amazon at £13.99 + postage/packaging and has a multitude of positive reviews from plenty of satisfied customers, so if you’ve been wondering whether it’s worth the buy or not, have a read of a few of those to help make you’re mind up.
It’s also eligible for Amazon Prime delivery perks too for those subscribed to the service.
If you’re happily in the cold coffee fan club, or you’re up for giving it a try, then you can get the Elegant Life Cold Brew Coffee Makerfrom Amazon here.
Wayne Rooney confirms he has had offers to take part in a boxing match
England and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has confirmed that he has indeed had talks and been offered the possibility of taking part in a boxing match at some point in the future.
While most people know him as one of the greatest British footballers of all time, some might also be aware that Rooney was indeed a bit of a boxer in his younger days and even fought at his local amateur club to a decent little pedigree — that’s according to Eddie Hearn, at least.
The Matchroom Sports promoter got rumours that Wazza might get in the ring circulating after his own appearance on Gary Neville’s Stick to Football, claiming that he’d had calls from the retired footballer himself trying to set something up and now the retired striker seems to have confirmed it.
Speaking with the panel of ex-pro pundits on The Overlap’s latest show, the 38-year-old was quizzed by Neville and his Monday Night Football co-host, Jamie Carragher as to whether there was any truth in it — to which he simply teased, “You never know”.
Going on to explain the genuine discussions that have already taken place, Rooney said, “They’ve been in touch and have asked the question but at the minute I’m just focusing on getting back into management”.
When asked if it was an exhibition for charity or part of something else, he then went on to reveal that it isn’t just a case of one offer but multiple, in fact.
“There’s been a few and obviously that Misfits [Boxing] have been in [touch] and all of the news”, said United’s all-time leading goalscorer, but once again reiterated that his main focus is simply getting back on the touchline. Can’t lie, doesn’t really matter who he was fighting, we’d pay to see it.
Come on, we could hardly write this whole thing without mentioning that clip:
The Premier League icon insisted that he still loves boxing like his dad before him and that his “grandad still runs the gym in Crocky [Croxteth, Liverpool]” but making a prompt comeback as a manager is the first priority after being let go by Birmingham after just 83 days in charge.
As for who he’d faced up against, the likes of Logan and Jake Paul have both been banded about and given Misfits in the influencer and YouTube world — having been co-founded by KSI — who knows? All we know is that Wazza was a warrior on the pitch and we’re sure he’d be similar on the canvas.

People with an extremely rare birthday can get free pints in Manchester next week
People who are unfortunate – or this case, fortunate – enough to have the rarest birthday of them all can grab a free pint in Manchester next week.
You guessed it – Leap Day babies, this one’s for you.
It’s estimated that only around 4.1 million people worldwide were born on 29 February – which, of course, is also known as a Leap Day birthday – and if you just so happen to be one of those people here in Manchester, then you’ll probably want to get yourself down to Society next week to celebrate.
That’s because the popular street food hall and social hub in the heart of the city centre is commemorating the special day that only comes around every four years by giving away free pints next Thursday.
The catch, however, is that you have to have been born on 29 February to claim the freebie.
Society is known for having one of the city’s biggest craft beer collections, and will be handing out glasses of its house Vocation Pure Pilsner to all Leap Day babies who’ve missed out on years of birthday benefits.
So-called ‘leapers’ wanting to claim their complimentary cold one must be able to verify their birthday with a valid ID at the Society bar.
The deal will run all day from the moment Society opens until it closes… but, for one day only.

If you’re the type to want to mark your birthday in a more lowkey way, then Society is an ideal place to head on down to.
Its relaxed dining and drinking set-up – with the ability to order food from five independent kitchens, and pick a pint from one of Vocation Brewery‘s 36 ever-changing tap beers from the comfort of your own table – makes it a great destination to celebrate your special day with groups either big or small.
