Serious about sustainability

At Modern Standard Coffee, we take sustainability and our social responsibility seriously. Sourcing and roasting coffee contributes towards carbon emissions, and as a responsible business we believe that we must play our part in doing the right thing.

Big journeys are made of small steps. As passionate members of 1% for the Planet, we give 1% of our turnover to environmental and social causes. It’s part of our own campaign for positive change.

Just by buying our great tasting coffee, you are helping to care for this beautiful earth. You buy, we give back. So thank you to every customer – together we are doing something really special
