Help us to help future farmers
Coffee is such an important part of everyday life that very few of us consider what goes into growing the beans which form this hugely popular, comforting beverage.
Coffee originated in 9th Century Ethiopia where according to legend the energising effect of the coffee bean was first recognised. The mystical effects of coffee began to spread and in the 15th Century it was being grown in Yemen by Sufi mystics who reportedly drank it to keep them awake during long hours of prayer.
The coffee bean began its trade history across North Africa and the Middle East, where its popularity grew.
In the 1600’s the Dutch then planted coffee across Sri Lanka, India and Java allowing the Dutch to become the biggest suppliers of coffee in Europe. The production of coffee then led to slavery in this industry.
The coffee bean then became one of the most valuable commodities traded world wide and it still is today. For countries that produce one of the world’s most popular beverages, the revenue gained can be hugely important to improving a nation’s health, education and economy. In Ethiopia alone a fifth of the population, that is 15 million farmers, depend on coffee for income.
With a commodity worth over one billion pounds a year in the UK alone and over $80 billion globally we can’t ignore the history or the facts that come with buying and selling coffee.
Our goal is not just to serve an amazing beverage it is to take coffee back to its roots.
Long term we would like to directly support the farmers producing coffee for us. We want to enable their children to go to school, we want to provide an income which allows the farmer access to decent health care and a good quality of living.
The coffee we use is already bought direct from the farmer through a third party and roasted locally. We want to take that one step further and go direct to the farmer themselves.
We are working tirelessly raise awareness of the corruption levels within our industry. We hope to educate our drinkers to always ask “where does your coffee come from?” before buying a coffee from anywhere. This will help support farmers from countries where our beans originate. Every cup or bag of our coffee bought gets us one step closer to helping make a difference to the next generation of coffee farmers and their families.
