Creative Director


Caravan Restaurants & Caravan Coffee Roasters


Laura Harper-Hinton is Co-Founder and Creative Director of Caravan Restaurants and Caravan Coffee Roasters. Originally from Wellington, New Zealand, Laura worked in one of the country’s pioneering coffee roasteries as a teenager before moving to Europe in her early 20s. She initially worked as a photographer based in The Netherlands, where she travelled Europe and America shooting food, wine and lifestyle, before eventually setting up home in London. Laura became MD of high profile London events company Urban Caprice (a subsidiary of Caprice Holdings), producing events for luxury fashion, art, music and private clients. She now designs the interiors of Caravan restaurants, and oversees all creative elements of the Caravan & Caravan Coffee Roasters’ brands. Laura still travels regularly throughout the world on sourcing, inspiration and coffee trips.

Caravan Coffee Roasters was founded in 2010 by New Zealand trio Miles Kirby, Laura Harper-Hinton and Chris Ammermann. The roastery was a leader in bringing specialty coffee to the UK with a focus on provenance, quality and craft. With a dedicated team of green coffee buyers who travel the world sourcing the very best beans directly from farms, estates and coops and a state-of-the-art roastery in King’s Cross, Caravan Coffee Roasters has now grown to be one of the UK’s foremost speciality coffee companies. The beans are expertly roasted in London and distributed to retail customers, cafes and restaurants across the UK and Europe.
