English seaside town with no chain coffee shops fights off Costa Coffee incursion - Boing Boing

We should move here! (or visit, whatever)

"The Guardian’s John Harris looks at the battle taking place in the Devon town of Totnes, a kind of counterculture/hippie haven on the "English Riviera," where residents are furious at the plan to open an outlet of the Costa Coffee chain. Harris paints a picture of Totnes as the kind of place that would be pretty nice to live in: they issue their own currency that only works with local businesses, have a record store that puts the best music shops in Manhattan to shame, and have dozens of nice coffee shops where skilled baristas ply their trade — like Portland, OR crossed with an English seaside village."
