Charlie's Coffee & Company - Est. 2008

I established Charlie's Coffee & Company over a decade ago; inspired by years of working in cafes & immersing myself in café-culture around the UK, I wanted to bring great coffee to the people of Hertfordshire.

I serve speciality coffee & morning cheer to the early risers at St Albans station from the back of a 3-wheeled van. My coffee is roasted by Has Bean, I use milk sourced from a family run dairy farm & pastries are freshly baked in St Albans.

My coffee shop is on London Road, 5 minutes wander from the city centre & the station, opposite the wonderful Odyssey cinema, next to Gabriel Square & a few doors along from the amazing Beer Shop.

Charlie’s is a friendly, cosy & creative space run by myself & a small team of coffee-loving humans. It’s located in the heart of the community & everyone is welcome. There are magazines to read, people to watch & conversations to be had. Kids make us smile so please do bring them along.

There are pastries, sourdough toast, sandwiches, juices, loose leaf tea, proper fizzy pop, single origin hot chocolate & life changing cake. The shelves are always stocked with coffee equipment, filter papers, reusable cups, local honey, artisan chocolate, locally made granola, & a lovely selection of retail coffee for brewing at home or at work.

Follow our social media for coffee service updates, dates of our “After Hours” cocktail evenings & ticket releases for our pop-up “Supperclubs” by local chefs Chappell & Caldwell.

We look forward to making you a coffee soon,
