Hi there, my name is Charlie. I've been passionate about coffee for over 5 years, since my travels in Australia. I trained as a barista 5 years ago in london with Gaggia, and have since done a course with the london school of coffee. I work as a restaurant manager and get to put my barista skills to use on a daily basis. However, i constantly daydream about doing it for myself and setting up a 'proper' coffee shop. I live in West Sussex and there is definately a gap in the market (we only have the usual chains in a very busy market town centre) I've seen the change in the Uk coffee scene over the years and am greatly encouraged by this. Originally i only knew of Monmouth, but have since discovered Taylor St barista's (richmond and brighton), Relish in Wadebridge, Redroaster in Brighton.....and others. Decent coffee places seem to be popping up everywhere which is great. I would love to set up where i live, as i said there is a gap in the market and i honestly believe it would be successful. But the cost of a lease and business rates in this area would set me back £45,000 pa. That seems insane....or is it? I would love to speak to people who have done it, and are running their own successful coffee shops and get some tips and advice. Many thanks for reading my rather long introduction. I really want to achieve my dream, but need to be realistic about the financial side of things. Looking forward to hearing from you guys, Charlie

Fiandre UK 188 Pagham Road, Nyetimber, PO21 3QB. I visited this place a couple of weeks ago. The guy Marc who own's it took over the premises from his dad who used the place to build Colnago road bikes (Top end bikes as seen in the Tour De France and other tours) for overseas and UK customers so he still has some biking memorabilia hanging around the place. Does a nice espresso, 50% robusta/50% arabica blend (I liked it anyway). Going back there next Saturday for more.
