Where can you get a good coffee??

A good question indeed and there seems to be a worry amongst coffee aficionados that the “big three” are suffocating independent (quality) coffee shops in the UK. In fact the BBC have a nice article entitled Giving it their best shot which is a nice write-up on “inferior coffee at an inflated price.” And the (partial) solution to this problem? Buy your coffee from a good independent. And where are they (OK, so there had to be a geospatial element)? Delocator provides a searchable database of coffee shops, overlain on Google Maps. The site is well designed, with a clean interface, through which you can also add new cafes. You can only search for full, or partial, postcodes which makes life a little harder when you are visiting somewhere, but other than that, “does what it says on the tin.”
