Pontarddulais

Pontarddulais is a town in South Wales whose name translates literally to Bridge on the Black Stream.

In 1839, the Llanelli Dock Company built a railway line through the town to take anthracite coal to Llanelli from the Amman Valley (Sound familiar?)

When six tinplate works were founded, the town went from being a railway junction to an industrial community in its own right, attracting workers from as far as Italy to come and work here. Unfortunately, industry began to decline in the 1950s as more modern tinplate works moved into nearby towns, and Pontarddulais started to become the commuter town it is now.

Nowadays, Pontarddulais has a population of around 9,000 and is known for its beautiful scenery and warm community feel; and, now, for its coffee.

Opening Pontarddulais

Pontarddulais has long been a town we have seen great potential in to open our next espresso bar location. Covid like everyone else, put on hold our plans to expand our cafe foothold but we remained confident that once life got back to a new form of normality, we would continue our plans and move forward with this location.

The project was finally back in full swing at the beginning of spring WITH all departments of the Coaltown team involved in the locations setup from aesthetic direction, cafe workflow through to visualisation and finally installation.

The cafe demonstrates THE NEXT PHASE OF COALTOWN ESPRESSO BARS AND SETS THE BLUEPRINT FOR FURTHER LOCATIONS TO BE DEVELOPED IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
