Corporate social responsibility
Doing our bit
Due to the nature of the product and the regions we source our coffee from, the future of our business will be affected by climate change. According to a recent study by Climatic Change, around 50% of the land around the world currently used to produce high-quality coffee could be unproductive by 2050.
Ethically sourced and directly traded coffees, cutting out the middle man and reducing unnecessary transportation.
Bag recyclingRead more
We work with Terracycle to recycle our coffee packaging. Send your used bags to our roastery, and we'll send them off to be recycled.
With roasting coffee, we use gas. Each year, we track our gas consumption and offset that with purchasing carbon credits.

Trees for Cities
We believe in green spaces and the replenishment of trees to create urban biodiversity & filter pollutants.
We've partnered with Seres in Guatemala, who are committed to empowering the next generation of sustainable leaders.
We product over 100L of coffee chaff a day. This is produced when we roast the coffee, and it has a biscuity smell.
It is a nutrient dense by-product of roasting, and we donate it to a local community garden to enrich their compost.
We donate all our chaff to The Ecology Centre, who mix it into their compost to enrich their soil. It's a great place to visit, and whilst you're there, you can grab a cup of Modern Standard Coffee too!
