Sustainability

The best parties last long enough to see the sun rise, and we want to keep it that way. From ensuring our supply chains are ethically robust, to using environmentally friendly takeaway containers, we’re committed to the sustainability of the coffee industry and our planet.

Here’s how we’re making conscious, sustainable choices across our business.

Green Beans

We believe in creating long-lasting, ethical relationships with the people who provide our beans. That’s why we only ever purchase from traders who’ve built that same kind of relationship direct with coffee farmers. This support system means farmers can produce consistently good coffee, whilst securing the financial future of their local communities.

And from party starters to fire starters, we utilise every part of the coffee beans that pass through our roastery. Combined with the sawdust from another local business, our coffee chaff is given a new lease of life as fuel brickettes. We love knowing that our beans go from one party to the next, lighting up wood burners, firepits and chimineas up and down the UK.

PACKAGING

At the start of 2020, we pledged to move towards more sustainable packaging for both our wholesale and retail customers. It’s a constant work in progress, but here’s where we’re at.

Wholesale

For our wholesale deliveries we only use reusable tubs that are hand-delivered, collected, cleaned and reused week by week.
Our next step is to invest in electric vans to make this process even more eco-friendly.

Both our 250g and 1kg coffee bags are fully home-recyclable, a movement that has so far saved over 150,000 bags from going landfill.

In Our Shops

All our takeaway packaging is supplied by Decent Packaging, made entirely from plants.

We’re also proud to support KeepCup, so bring yours along to any of our cafes and you’ll bag 10% off your beverage.

PODS

Our roasters spent months of intensive research finding a pod that wouldn’t leave an environmental mark, no ifs, buts or caveats accepted.

Every single pod we make is made of 100% natural materials, completely organic and will rot to nothing in the same amount of time as an orange peel. Throw them on the compost heap or pop in your food waste bin, it’s that simple.
