SUSTAINABILITY

Foundational to the way we choose to go about our business.

We consciously choose our coffees, with respect to how the product is grown and harvested… preferably under Organic and Shade Grown conditions, within an economically sustainable environment.

Fundamental to this, we are always concerned for the economic and social well being and living standards of the people who produce our coffees.

Our Certifications

One of the most important certifications in our business as it supports local communities & the environment.

Fairtrade is an alternate commercial trading system, independently audited, which embraces community action within a democratic Cooperative structure to ensure a higher than market price for the coffee to each farmer, and elevates the living standards for whole communities through the receipt of payment of a Fairtrade Premium direct to the Cooperative.

Certified Organic coffee means no inorganic chemicals or pesticides are used in producing the coffee.

The strict standards of the Australian Certified Organic system go further, demanding no chemicals are used in the ENTIRE supply chain, including roasting and handling here in Australia.

Shadegrown means the coffee trees are planted under an indigenous or mixed forest canopy.

This provides natural habitat and food for local wildlife as well as a vital haven for migratory birds. We have 24 Shadegrown coffees and 12 of these are Fairtrade Organic Certified coffees.

Our Carbon Neutrality is substantiated and supported by best practice auditing and carbon emissions accounting methods.
