A NEW coffee shop will be opening in Colchester town centre this weekend.

Triple Two Coffee hopes to boost business in Long Wyre Street.

Starboard PM LTD is working with a Colchester couple to open the franchise in the old Linens Direct shop, at the entrance of Priory Walk.

Triple Two Coffee is known for its fresh food and wide range of hot beverages.

An announcement on Facebook said the coffee shop will be opening on Saturday.

Staff will be giving away 200 free coffees from 9am and there will be live music and games throughout the day.
