How we Source Coffee

Sustainable coffee sourcing

Buying green coffee from origin.

We source our green coffee through importers who work directly with the farmers, to develop lasting relationships with the people growing the beans, and create positive development at origin. This allows us to deliver coffee that is both ethically sourced, and of the highest quality.

We prioritise:
•   Long-lasting relationships with farmers & co-operatives
•   Sustainable growth at all stages of the supply chain
•   Ethical trading
•   Pricing averaging three times that of Fairtrade

Sampling & Evaluating Coffee

We're always looking for that next gem! By roasting and sampling dozens of samples every week, we test the best possible components for our blends and taste potential new single origins!

Promoting positive change.

Women Coffee Producers

An example of the work our importers do to promote positive change can be found in the Women Coffee Producers program, which we buy from whenever available. The program seeks to address inequality in coffee growing regions by creating equity, visibility and access to a wider market for women.

Preserving Heritage

We promote awareness of heritage coffee varietals, most recently the Yemenia Mother Population. Forging new frontiers of price transparency, our customers have the opportunity to try exciting new coffees while we donate our profits to the UNICEF Yemen Appeal.

Buying Coffee Direct

We deliver coffee that is ethically sourced and of the highest quality. We prioritise lasting relationships with farmers and positive development at origin.

Origin Trip

In 2019, Nathan travelled to Coorg, India. We visited farms that we had previously bought from and explored new ways we could work together.

We're proud to work with South India Coffee Company to continue to highlight the incredible quality of Arabica produced in India!

Origin Trip

2018 saw our first origin trip to Huabal, Peru. We saw coffee production at the farm level and how importers are changing their payment structures.

We have bought Don Saul's coffee every year since our visit and are proud to continue this incredible relationship!
