Every year we have worked towards a new goal as we think it is important to give back by finding more sustainable ways to operate and help those in need.
As part of our corporate social responsibility we do the following:
We work with Partners of Change Ethiopia. It is a charity that puts their effort and passion into helping the disadvantaged families in Ethiopia. They are working towards equal rights, fighting hunger and poverty and offering them access to clean water. We are proud to be able to help them every year and support their cause.
We buy our green coffee beans through direct trade. We think it is important to have an established relationship with the farmers as it is in the benefit of both parties when it comes to long-term relationships. This way we make sure we pay more and we have always received quality in return that we then share with our customers.
We have coffees that are Cafe Femenino certified. This certification started as a mission to offer women farmers equal opportunities and help them grow their business. We are proud to have some coffees that hold this certification.
We are Rainforest Alliance Certified. This certification helps buyers deliver more value to farmers and help them grow in a sustainable manner, which subsequently has a positive impact on the communities and landscapes.
We added 120 solar panels on our roastery a few years ago in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
We switched to biodegradable cups and have them available in all of our shops, alongside recyclable bags.
We will not stop here, as we have a few more goals to work towards, while we will continue working on these and contributing to making a small change in the world.
We would like to thank to all of our customers who have supported us, as they helped us achieve our goals, which we are very grateful for!
