Charlie’s Coffee & Company

Charlie’s Coffee and Company was established in 2008 by barista, Charlie, who wanted to bring great coffee to the people of St. Albans and achieve her dream of opening a café. From the back of a three-wheeled Piaggio van, Charlie began serving speciality coffee to the early risers at St Albans train station.
