ESPRESSO AND BEYOND
We have teamed up with an independently owned coffee roaster boasting more than 150 years of experience in order to produce our very own special blend of coffee for you to enjoy. Every single coffee bean has been ethically and sustainably sourced direct from coffee growers across the globe ensuring that only new season harvests are used so that our coffee is as fresh as possible. Our coffee is a blend of Triple certified Honduran, Peruvian, Sumatran and Ethiopian coffee beans expertly roasted to produce a coffee with bright, sweet aroma followed by soft roast notes and a hint of fruit. To us, certifications are principles and that is why we only source coffee with all three of the Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic seals of approval but why?
The Fairtrade Mark is the only independent guarantee that coffee farmers have been paid a price that’s higher than the cost of production. It also guarantees an additional social premium for the growers. They need to spend the premium democratically: to develop the business or pay for community projects.
RAIN FOREST ALLIANCE
The Rainforest Alliance seal of approval means that coffee farmers look after the tropical forests where they live and work. This certifies that wildlife is protected, rivers are kept clean, and natural resources conserved. For us, it’s the gold standard in environmental certifications for coffee growing
If coffee’s organic, it means the farmers don’t use unnecessary chemicals and pesticides – good news for plant and animal life. It’s also good news for coffee drinkers as we believe it enhances the coffees natural flavour just as nature intended.
