      I arrive 15 minutes ahead of schedule at Roullier White, despite having battled my way through the torrential rains that decided to plague my entire bus ride there. Stepping into the cosy warmth of Roullier White, I am greeted with a firm handshake by Lawrence, who owns the place and Mila, who happily gives me a hug. It’s been some time since we last saw each other. Lawrence informs me that we are going to be behind schedule because Jo Fairley is still in the middle of interviewing Mark Buxton for a podcast. Small matter, because since the last time I was here, Lawrence has brought in a number of brands that I am excited to try out, such as Josh Meyer’s Imaginary Authors, that I have yet to sample, and Neela Vermeire’s creations, that I am eager to revisit, having only tried them on paper once on my visit to Jovoy last December.
