Environmental Policy

We care about the environment and the planet we live on. This goes deeper than words, we are truly committed to keeping our negative impact to an absolute minimum. Obviously one major challenge we face is food miles – coffee only grows between the tropics and therefore we cannot source coffee beans locally. We try to balance this out by reducing our impact elsewhere. We do this by:

  • Choosing coffee from farms that operate under sustainable practices
  • Choosing suppliers who use sustainable business practices
  • Making local deliveries by bicycle
  • Operating a zero waste to landfill policy
  • Using recycled and recyclable packaging with some small exceptions (we use a foil and plastic bag only for ground coffee if a customer requests it. Those bags can be recycled but not by all councils. However they are re-usable)
