Joan’s Coffee shop is named after a long-serving Companion who started the business 15 years ago with just a kettle and a jar of coffee. Our coffee shop has grown so much and is now an extremely successful part of our organisations, which has achieved 5-star hygiene rating from South Cambridgeshire District Council.
