Here is an overview of the place :</p><p> </p><p><img alt="Aa8071dc-1bb1-4136-a277-c34de09c46f9-1515006514" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/476235/AA8071DC-1BB1-4136-A277-C34DE09C46F9-1515006514.jpg"></p><p><img alt="Vue_dessus-1515006433" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/476233/Vue_dessus-1515006433.PNG"></p><p> </p><p> </p><p><u><strong>MEET THE TEAM!</strong></u></p><p> </p><p><strong>Clémence</strong>, a foodie, passionate about travels and new flavours, eager to prepare yummy dishes that she discovered while traveling around Scandinavia, South America or South Africa.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Clément</strong> is a hedonist enjoying every moment. He first enjoyed baking along with his Grandmother, making puff pastry. Clément is looking forward to baking sumptuous cakes and sharing their individual stories with you.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Matthieu </strong>is a mischievous young man fond of terroir and quality products. He can’t wait to prepare his beloved coffee beans especially for you all of which have been cultivated and roasted by expert hands.</p><p> </p><p><img alt="Equipe_dune_coffee_shop-1515327673" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/476868/Equipe_Dune_Coffee_Shop-1515327673.jpg"></p><p> </p><p>These 3 lovers of fine food initially studied together before going their separate ways,working in different industries and countries. It was in the US where Clément fell in love with speciality coffee, and warm and welcoming coffee shops. Soon, the idea of opening his own place in his hometown was brewing in his mind! Matthieu and Clémence, who were just waiting for that special call from Clément, thereafter shortly came on board.</p><p>We strive to source only local and quality-oriented products (for example full-fat milk from the Ferme des peupliers, a small farm 20 km away from Rouen) while being as environmentally-focused as possible. </p><p> </p><p><u><strong>WHAT'S UP AT THE MOMENT?</strong></u></p><p> </p><p>Our premises are located right in Rouen's historic centre. It is now a clothing store so there is a lot of work to do to change it! The loan was accepted from the bank and we hope to open the coffee shop in February <strong>2018 (fingers crossed)</strong>!</p><p><u><strong>SAVE THE DATE !</strong></u></p><p>➤ January 3rd 2018 : beginning of the works</p><p>➤ January 9th 2018 : launch of our KissKissBankBank campaign and <strong>decoration of the place</strong></p><p>➤ early February 2018 : end of campaign and preparation of your pledges</p><p>➤ mid February 2018 : <strong>opening of the coffee shop!</strong></p><p>Get updates on our project, follow us on social networks :</p><p><strong>Facebook</strong> : <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/dunecoffeeshop">@dunecoffeeshop</a></p><p><strong>Instagram</strong> : <a target="_blank" href="https://www.instagram.com/dune_coffeeshop/">@dune_coffeeshop</a></p>
