Our Story

Our family-owned and run coffee roasting business, Capital Coffee, spans multiple generations and has a history going back almost 40 years.

By 2010 we thought it was high time we we put into practice everything we knew about successful coffee shops run by our customers and opened the Hapi Cafe in Claygate.

It’s given us a valuable insight and respect for the challenges faced by the independent coffee shop.

It’s not easy. It’s not exactly glamorous, but it’s a lot of fun.

The biggest lesson we’ve learned?

People come back for good coffee that’s well made.

No prizes for guessing whose coffee we use.

Coffee Menu

Our Claygate coffee blend has proved very popular, making reliably excellent Espresso and also amazing Flat Whites.

All of our coffee available in Claygate is hand-roasted in small batches by our master roaster.

    Stopped here for a quick bite of lunch whilst hiking in Surrey. The staff were friendly, the coffee was delicious as were our Tuna Melt Paninis and the cakes we enjoyed as a treat to keep us going on our 20 km winter walk. It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy coffee inside the cafe but we also noticed several people enjoying the winter sunshine and sitting outside.

  • We have been regular visitors at Capital for a number of years now and have always been impressed by the friendly staff, the great coffee and food as well as the general atmosphere. But we have been most delighted to see the recent facelift to the interior and love the fact that art produced by two local artists adorn the walls and are for sale. What a great idea. Well done Team Capital!
