Steampunk Coffee Machine goes to No 10 Downing Street

Professor Harris was recently invited to No 10 Downing Street as part of the 100 Small Businesses selected by Small Business Saturday.

SteampunkCoffeeMachine creates working cold drip coffee machine sculptures that make great coffee and give independent coffee shops a unique focal point that sets them apart from the competition. We also take the machines to the London Coffee Festival each year introducing small batch coffee roasters to the trade and to the public and raise money for the Project Waterfall Charity

Small Business Saturday receives widespread support from local authorities across the country, from business and from government. At the Downing Street

reception, small business owners were welcomed by Stephen Barclay MP,

Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Baroness Fairhead CBE, Minister of State at the Department for International Trade, Claire Perry MP, Minister of State at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Caroline Nokes MP, Minister for Government Resilience and Efficiency.


Stephen Barclay MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, said:

“It’s great to welcome so many business owners to Number 10 today to show our appreciation for the crucial contribution they make to Britain. Small businesses are vital to a thriving and competitive economy that is fit for the future, so it’s great to see that the number of small businesses in the UK has been growing in recent years. We hope the country will join us in championing the UK’s small businesses, and support them this Saturday.”

Michelle Ovens MBE, Director, Small Business Saturday, said: “Small Business Saturday shines a spotlight on our local businesses to show how vitally important they are to individual communities and the UK as a whole. We are encouraging everyone to support the small businesses near them this Saturday, by shopping local, and also giving them their backing into 2018 and beyond.” 

The UK’s small businesses made £717 million on Small Business Saturday in 2016, which was a 15 per cent rise on the previous year according to research by principal supporter, American Express.
