The scent of coffee in the morning, is there something even remotely better ? There are various of coffee types, some are bad, some are good but some manually selected tea leaves and coffee beans are just incredible. We support community projects and NGO’s that are committed to quality improvement and consequently price improvements for the coffee farmers – organisations such as TechnoServe for example have worked across East Africa to assist with coffee infrastructure and producer knowledge. If the quality is high enough we will buy Fair Trade coffees. This organisation contributes a social premium to a smallholder cooperative which can be used towards projects which are beneficial to the whole community such as primary schools or medical dispensaries.
Our coffee pick today: Colombia – Arabica: Colombia, which claims a fair share of coffee production with 810,000,000 kg per year, is just behind Brazil in terms of taste with its Arabica coffee bean. Among the delicious coffee types of Colombia are Extra and Supremo. See extra details on Craft coffee ethically sourced UK.
Eco friendly coffee tip of the day : Single serve cups and pods are possibly the most detrimental form of coffee on the environment. The convenience of K-Cups and Nespresso pods has dirty consequences. In 2015, Green Mountain Coffee Co (Keurig) produced 10 billion (10,000,000,000) K-Cups. If you set them next to each other in a straight line, they would wrap around the globe. 10.5 times. In a single year, we wrapped the entire world with K-Cup waste 10.5 times. That doesn’t even include Nespresso and other pod manufacturers. Single serve pods are an environmental nightmare. Not only that, but they are relatively expensive, brew sub-par coffee, and pull you away from experiencing coffee to its fullest. Please, avoid disposable coffee pods at all cost.
We as a family have not only been lovers of good tea and coffee for generations, but have also worked in the trade.
