Today is a very special day for us and we want to share this great news with you!
We are celebrating 5 years since we were awarded the prestigious Guardian Sustainable Business award in recognition for our Bird Friendly shade-grown coffee
This product was launched in 2014 in the UK market, 100% arabica coffee that is grown under conditions set out and certified by the Smithsonian Institution's Migratory Bird Centre in Washington.
The Bird Friendly® program aims to protect the most quality habitat from the threat of deforestation under the Bird Friendly seal. The Bird Friendly seal really is the gold standard in eco-friendly, organic farming.
Not only is the coffee one of the most environmentally friendly coffees in the world, but it also tastes amazing too. Being grown strictly in the shade allows the coffee to mature slower giving it a rounded, balanced flavour with an amazing clean cup profile.
By purchasing this coffee, you are protecting the planet, paying a fair price to producers, whilst enjoying stunning single estate, organically grown coffee, freshly roasted here in the United Kingdom.
Bryan, our Managing Director and founder, said:
‘It was a momentous occasion to be recognised by such a prestigious award following the hard work we had done in raising the profile of Bird Friendly coffee here in the UK. Our Bird Friendly certified organic coffee grows under biodiverse shade that provides critical habitat for migratory songbirds and other wildlife, isolates carbon and helps fight climate change.
The evening at The Crystal in London’s Docklands was certainly one of the highlights of my career, capped off by being joined by Dr Robert Rice from the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center in Washington DC who happened to be visiting during a rare vacation to the UK’.
