I am a long time web developer and technical trainer turned small business owner. I love coffee and have long had a dream of running my own coffee shop. After 15 years of dreaming I decided it was time to put the rubber to the road and take the plunge and thus Brew Haha Coffeehouse was born. Open for business July 1, 2019 we focus on Quality, Cleanliness and Customer Service. We have a warm and cozy environment serving some of the best coffee, espresso and tea in the area.
