Founded in 2018 by social entrepreneur and refugee Usman Khalid, Haven Coffee is a coffee brand with a social mission, running pop-up coffee shops for workspaces and events across London. They provide a coffee shop experience without you even having to leave the building. Each cup of Haven Coffee you buy helps support and raise awareness for refugee communities across the UK, from promoting refugee artists to organising events, as well as providing barista training to those refugees who are looking to build a new professional life for themselves.
During the lockdown period, Haven Coffee has produced new podcast ‘Migrant Ground’ as well as hosted a virtual exhibition featuring primarily migrant artists. Their coffee is available to buy from the Haven Coffee website, as well as from their stall at the Vintage Market in Shoreditch on Saturdays and Sundays.
