Ethics & Us

The majority of our coffee comes from South America & the Colombian government are very strict on the quality of their exports. A better price is paid for export & only the best beans leave the county incentivising the coffee farmers to produce consistent good quality coffee. A governing body called FNC oversees all of the exported coffee & represents hundreds of thousands of independent coffee farmers.

It is difficult for us to hold ethical badges as we do not work directly with the coffee farmers & it is difficult (almost impossible) to identify the individual growers as they belong to communes however that doe not mean we are not ethical. We only work with our coffee roaster because they pay a fair wage for the coffee working with FNC to ensure a minimum living standard.

Our coffee roaster has been certified for:

Fair trade

Rain forest Alliance

Soil association
