Brian's Coffee Spot is a blog about places I like to have coffee. However, since I started the Coffee Spot in September 2012, it's become so much more than that. It's grown to become an on-line resource for finding great, independent speciality coffee shops.

Tired of going to a new town or city only to end up in the same old chains because you don't know where the good, independent coffee shops are? Then take a look at the Coffee Spot! I only write about places I like, so anywhere featured on the Coffee Spot is going to be good (at least, it's going to be somewhere I thought was good!). 

From the outset I decided that I didn't want to take advertising or sponsorship on the Coffee Spot. My independence is very important to me and the freedom from advertising and sponsorship means that my only criterion is "do I want to write about this place?". I don't have to worry about page views or click-throughs, I just write about what I want.

It's very liberating and I believe that this independence is key to the Coffee Spot's success. However, the simple fact is that the Coffee Spot costs me money to run; money for travel, money for coffee. Although I'm based near London, I get around as much as I can, covering almost all parts of the UK. I've also travelled further afield with places from Ireland, France, Portugal, Denmark, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Japan, the USA and Canada all making appearances on the Coffee Spot.

At the moment, I'm fortunate enough to have a flexible, part-time job that pays me to travel and leaves me enough time to write the Coffee Spot, so I don't need the Coffee Spot to support itself. Instead, I've decided to use the money raised from your Patreon donations to improve the Coffee Spot website by purchasing specific WordPress modules.

Head over to www.brian-coffee-spot.com to see what I do. Hopefully with your help, I'll be able to make the Coffee Spot bigger and better.

Many thanks,
Brian.

Goals
$3 of $25 per Post
I've decided to use the money I raise on Patreon to fund improvements on the Coffee Spot website. The first will be to buy a new mapping module to replace the current one I use which is no longer supported.

Sadly Patreon only lets me set a monthly earnings amount whereas this goal is based on raising a specific total. When I hit that cumulative amount, I'll buy the new module.
