Farm to bean

All our coffees are sourced from origins where sustainability, as well as the remuneration to the grower, is as fair and equitable as possibly can be. We are deeply involved in all matters pertaining to ensuring that we only source premium coffee beans from suppliers and organizations that have a proven and verified method of supporting and assisting the people that are at the beginning of the supply chain, namely the growers and their families. We supply fair trade as well as rain-forest alliance certified coffee beans to all our customers and our partners regularly visit the bean sources to ensure the quality and standard we demand is met.

Bean to compost

We also have a ‘Coffee waste to compost’ program that we offer to all our customers. This is an easy way to integrate sustainability into the workplace. It involves a third-party company that fully meets sustainability standards. We employ them to regularly collect the pucks of ground coffee, which are easily stored in a designated bin. The pucks are ethically transported to a compost heap in a community garden. The partnership transpires into a win-win situation for all involved.
