Artisan has been set up by Edwin and Magda. Having both spent a year in Uganda they arrived back in the UK in 2011 and decided to shun the usual 9-5. Seeing the trend of independent coffee houses in Central and East London they made it their aim to bring quality coffee to the South West of the city and have now settled in Putney and Stamford Brook. Their business plan was simple: great coffee and the rest will fall into place. Edwin brings a wealth of knowledge of the local area – having been brought up in London, whilst Magda brings a passion for authentic fine tasting coffee – coming from Australia where coffee is more of an obsession than a drink. However now that Artisan is up and running, they realise they are working 5-9 instead of the usual 9-5!
