NOT ENOUGH, BUT WE’RE WORKING ON IT
Protecting and saving what we love is important to us. A river; A mountain; Our people; The Coffee Industry. It all matters, because it’s all connected. What’s become apparent to us is that when we treat our coffee products as disposable, it impacts how we care for our coffee farmers. There is also a connection between the way we trash and discard our stuff and the way we are trashing the planet, which is the ultimate source of all of it.
We’ve spent enough time digging into our supply chain to know that even “greener” options have their issues. Such is the nature of outsourcing.
What we can promise is a sincere attempt to address the core tensions between the market’s demand, our need to protect our business’ growth alongside the planet and people’s need for a break.
We’re not here to greenwash, or add to the overuse of the word “sustainability”. Like many businesses, we’re far from perfect but we will never stop striving to do better and analyse our practices as we grow.

Each year we get closer to achieving our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2025. Steps taken include:
Our journey to sustainability is one of honest analysis, transparency, effective change and ongoing commitment.
We actively encourage and welcome our customers to continuously challenge us on our practices and are always willing to go outside our comfort zone.
WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
"If you use a commodity or resource carefully and without extravagance you will never be in need."
One of our key objectives was the removal of single use plastic takeaway cups, packaging and unnecessary waste. Seeking to minimize our consumption of natural resources through reusable product and operational conservation. We've achieved this through the following actions:
ROAST YOURSELF OR YOU'RE ONLY KIDDING YOURSELF
In 2021 we opened our own Roastery in order to control the quality of our beans and reduce waste. Before we roasted our own coffee, we would deliver thousands of bags of coffee to our shops, which resulted in a lot of waste.
