Happy Birthday to our smiling Barista

C is for coffee, C is for caring, C is for community and C is for the lady who stands for all of the above; Charlie!
Charlie, who is famous for her  little Soko Coffee van, has a community of her own; an early-morning coffee-community. From 6.30am, whatever the weather, Charlie is outside the station serving her lattes, cappuchinos and flat-whites to sleepy commuters!
Winner of  the ‘Best Coffee In St Albans 2009’ award and the ‘Exceptional Customer Service 2010’ award, Charlie has just celebrated her birthday so stalbanslife  wish her a happy birthday and another successful year of good coffees!
