We unfortunately had to make the difficult decision to suspend our kitchen operations temporarily, likely until late summer or early autumn. Thank you to everyone who supported us and our Chefs Tomoko and Raf.
We currently offer plant based baked goods, coffee, tea, and wholebean.
Harken was born out of the idea that there was something missing in coffee. A sense of elegance. Romance. But more than anything else, thoughtful experiences. We believe that coffee can be progressive and forward thinking while still approachable and devoid of any pretense. That you can respect the past while still learning from it and improve. We take inspiration from mindful design, from craftsmanship, attention to detail and the object speaking for itself. Not just how things taste, but how they feel.
We stand for coffee that is grown with care by farmers who are supported both financially and creatively. That uses science as a tool while still being a craft. That can be avant garde without being daunting. Informed by design, we strive to create memories, both when you brew our coffee in your home and when you are in our shop. We don’t use tasting notes on our packaging because we aren’t selling you flavours, we are selling you an experience. This is specialty coffee for the connoisseur and beginner alike.
Our goal is simply to provide you with lovely coffee that you can enjoy simply for what it is, letting the product speak for itself.
