How long has your business been trading in St Albans and why is it unique?

Bean Central has been trading 4.5 years now. It's unique in its concept because its probably the smallest coffee bar in St Albans and it's predominantly takeaway but with seating outside for the warmer weather. It's also got parking right outside the shop.

What is your personal connection to the City other than your business?

I have lived in St Albans for around 10 years.

Describe your business moto in 3 words.

Community, coffee and chatter.

1 life goal - this can be realistic or pure fantasy.

More travel and a happy, healthy and content family. I've lived overseas for 10 years so that is no longer a life goal.
Where is the best coffee/coffee shop (anywhere in the world) you have drank at?
The best coffee I have had was in a small coffee bar in Melbourne (can't remember the name) but in the lanes. Honestly Melbourne do the best coffee and have the coolest coffee shops.
Donna to Karen Q: I asked you loads today 🤣 are you a cat or dog person or both or neither?
At it turns out I am neither. We have dog, cat, hair and animal skin allergies in all of the family, except our eldest son so all pets are now a huge no no. When I was was younger we had cats and dogs and at the time I loved both especially a cat called Ginger and a dog called Nemo.
