A business with purpose: a reality check

HatHats Coffee was founded by serial entrepreneur Louis Hurst and his wife Lisa in 2015 when Lisa returned to work after taking a few years out to raise the couples 3 children (Amelia, Felix and Hattie).

The couple wanted to be able to create a ‘Good Cup of Coffee’ not just in its taste and flavour but also wanted to make a positive impact on the coffee companies supply chain and the communities it serves.

It was simple, the couple wanted to create a People First, Profit second business that delivered good initiatives at scale and always did ‘the right thing’.

Louis is a pioneer in conscious capitalism and lives by the saying that ‘a business that makes just money is a poor business’. He is also a keen innovator in the Circular Economy and is passionate about finding ways for small businesses to deliver circular initiatives at scale.
