By 2011 she loved the coffee so much, she bought out her supplier and made the delicious Fairtrade coffee her own – Harrie’s Coffee.
What is it about Harrie's Coffee and hats?
What's the hat to do with coffee you might ask. Well - you can't spend 6 years outside a train station in all weathers to provide coffee and breakfast to the commuters of Arundel, without the need of a hat! What started out as a matter of need for Harrie's Coffee owner Heather, has now become an obsession and something for which she is widely known. That's how Harrie's Coffee and hats became the double-act that has since become our logo. If there's no hat, it's not Harrie's Coffee!
