A PENARTH man who traded in his day job to start a travelling coffee service is looking for a suitable garage before his deal is up with his current base. 

Piotr Skoczylas, founder of Stol Coffee and originally from just outside Krakow in Poland, came to Penarth three years ago. 

His love for people made the father-of-two throw the towel in on his day job serving coffee near Penarth Train Station to take his message – and coffee – to the road at the start of the first lockdown.

Mr Skoczylas is currently looking for a new base and put out a plea on his Facebook page to see if the Penarth community could help. The post has currently received over 450 shares.

The six-month deal on the garage he is currently brewing from comes to an end in February, and he has just three weeks to find something suitable. He is looking for a modest space where he can continue to realise his goal of bringing the community together in Penarth.

“The people in Penarth are absolutely wonderful,” he said. 

“I’ve met so many willing to help with this garage situation.

“Unfortunately, so far, we haven’t been able to find a space which would have water and electricity where I can store the bike, brew the coffee and bake cookies from.

“I don’t need much but it has to be somewhere around Penarth.

“I know that there is a space out there we just need to reach the right person! 

“It’s been a wonderful journey for the last seven months creating loads of smiles and I feel like I have some positive impact in this lovely community, and I do not want this journey to be over”.
