Coffee man's grounds to celebrate
A young businessman has scooped the award for Cornish Entrepreneur Of The Year.

Tom Sobey, 29, from Helston, set up the Origin Coffee brand three years ago and its turnover has increased to over 1m.

The business employs 12 people at its Constantine office. The award is from the Hub, a business network in Cornwall for the under 30s.

Mr Sobey said: "I hope it shows other young people... what can be achieved if you really believe in your product."
