The World “Coffee Belt” is a fascinating place and here’s why.
For a quick read on why coffee tastes differently according to where it’s grown click on Perfect Daily Grind article.
Back in 2016, we had an idea to sell the coffee we had just been given by a local roaster under our own brand.
So we are inviting you to join our Crazy Cat Coffee Online Community - welcome.
We deliver freshly roasted coffee direct to your door via our website or via this website.
Our Coffee is Suitable for Cafetieres & most coffee machines - it's roasted and filter ground to perfection in the UK.
Whilst our Decaf has Rainforest Alliance Certification it doesn't mean our other coffees aren't "Ethical". Our coffee roasters work hard to ensure that they pay a fair price for the coffee they source & buy.
The reason we do not hold Fairtrade & Rainforest alliance for all our coffees:
The first reason is availability. Fairtrade and RA coffees are often available only for a short time.
The second reason is that just because something isn’t Fairtrade or RA doesn’t mean that it’s not ethical!
Our Coffee roaster has visited the mills and co-ops that we buy our blending coffees from in Colombia (Bucaramanga and Medellin Excelso), Brazil (Santos) and Sumatra (Lintong and Wahana), and can vouch for their fairness and decency in the way that the mills and smallholders interact.
Due to the nature of coffee being produced in the main (85%of global crop) by smallholders, i.e. farmers with 10 acres or less, on occasion a small part of a batch of milled coffee will indeed be certified, but in order to comply with the regulations we cannot claim it is RA or Fairtrade.

It all started way back in 2016 when we found an amazing coffee roaster in Chesterfield.
John (our coffee roaster) has over 3 decades of experience and has guided us to the best coffee we have ever tasted.
They supply us with top quality coffee and as everyone (except my dad) shops on Amazon where best to create our own brand and supply the nation with delicious filter ground coffee?
The name came from a kitten we rescued, utterly crazy & fearless. Unfortunately, our kitten is no longer with us but her name lives on.
"Crazy cat doesn't sponsor the team for any financial benefit but do it to support grassroots rugby"
As a family, we have been involved with HRFC for many years as our son played & Al coached.
Sport & rugby specifically brings huge benefits to Adults, children & their families in many ways and we are proud to be able to lend some financial support to ensure the team has the facilities, kit, and training gear they need.
Of course it's not all business we get to be actively involved with the club from the Didi mini rugby right through to watching the first team play...and then there is the rugby lunches where it can get very messy..on and off the pitch!
Even though we don't have "the badges" to prove we're ethical it doesn't mean our coffees aren't ethical.
Our coffee roasters work hard to ensure that they & we pay a fair price for the coffee.
