Sustainability & Impact

"For generations, coffee drinking has been a fundamental part of British culture, and it should surely be mentioned in the same breath as other staples such as bread, milk, and eggs. As such, we must be even more mindful about where our coffee comes from, how it is produced, and the waste we generate from consumption."

Dan Webber, Founder


Our 2022-2023 Impact Report highlights our impact objectives, our progress so far, and how we will look to improve before our next B Corp™ Impact Assessment in two years time.

Where our coffee comes from

We now buy 82% of our coffee directly from growers and producers. Most of these relationships have been built up over the past few years, and we’re now able to handle much of the logistics in-house - meaning greater control and transparency.

Reducing Use of Single-Use Plastics, Waste, and Emissions

All of our bag variants and coffee pods are made from the same certified 100% compostable materials, including the valve and zipper (BS EN 13432). We use fully plastic-free, 100% FSC recyclable delivery boxes of all sizes and coffee cards to label each coffee, all made in the UK.

We will soon begin our in-house carbon accounting, focussing on detailed analysis of scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions - followed by a longer-term plan to go net zero well before 2050.

Re-Cycle Charity Partnership

We have been working in partnership with Re-Cycle since June 2020, donating 25p from every 250g bag and £1 from every 1kg bag of all sales from our Discovery Coffee range to the charity.

For every 28 kilos of coffee roasted, a single bike plus spare parts will be sent to Africa. In the last year, 116 bikes have been shipped to the Village Bicycle Project in Ghana (261 bikes to date). We also donate surplus coffee to the charity, and aim to continue this partnership with increased donations year on year.
