Magda Harrison, Artisan

Magda from Artisan spoke with us about her favourite places in Putney and one of Putney’s favourite coffee house, Artisan.

Edwin & Magda run Artisan, Putney’s popular coffee house on Upper Richmond Road

Intro about yourself, your business and why you chose Putney?

My name is Magda and along with my husband Edwin, we set up Artisan on Upper Richmond Road almost 10 years ago. I’m from Oz, and Putney has a great Aussie/Kiwi community who love speciality coffee, and that’s why we chose Putney – that and because we love it! Artisan is all about coffee, we serve the best coffee around.

What do you love most about Putney? I love that the Putney community tend to stay local and shop local, so wherever I go I tend to see friendly, smiley faces.

Which is the first hospitality business you will be heading to when we are able to socialise again?

I can’t wait to head to the many great independents in Putney, such as Home SW15 and Yum Sa.

Which shop in Putney have you missed visiting during lockdown?

I’ve missed sitting in amazing restaurants, like Ma Goa and enjoying the atmosphere.

Ma Goa opposite Artisan serves delicious home style Indian cooking and available on takeaway & delivery during lockdown
Artisan collaborated with Putney Arts Theatre last summer to create al fresco outdoor seating on Upper Richmond Road for their customers, check it out if you haven’t visited.

How can people continue to support your business at the moment?

For those people that can come out to Artisan for their takeaway, it means so much (thank you!), but equally for those who can’t we also post out our beans, whole or ground, which can be bought here:
