With Laura spending all her time drawing pretty pictures and Andrew wafting in and out of coffee-induced dream worlds, Nick’s been left to look after the business side of things. This mostly involves talking to bankers and lawyers and the shareholders at Tesco - but it’s a job, and somebody’s got to do it.
Laura’s a bit of a design guru. She thinks about fonts and colours and furniture and fabrics. At the moment she’s a little preoccupied with a brand new baby (Charlie, the world’s only 8-week old barista) - but on her return to the working world, she’ll be looking after the way we look.
Andrew eats, drinks, brews, inhales, dreams about, talks about, sweats, bathes in, studies, injects and loves coffee. He’s one with the bean. And when he’s not doing all the above, he’s training baristas and judging Barista Championships. Needless to say, he doesn’t sleep much.
Harris + Hoole is all about good coffee and happy people. By "good coffee", we mean "fantastic tasting, professionally crafted, speciality grade, directly sourced coffee". And by "happy people", we mean "happy people". We reckon if we get these things right, everything else will look after itself.
Harris + Hoole is a family affair - from our roots making artisan coffee on the back streets of London, we are using all of our coffee know-how to bring a whole new coffee experience to the high street.
