I invite you to take a moment and look, really look at the picture. What do you see? We see care for the environment. Do you see it?
Let’s start with the coffee bag. It is the closest thing we can get to being environmentally friendly. It is a kraft bag with a tin tie. It is recyclable. The label? It’s an ink stamp. The coffee variety? It has been hand written on the label. Let’s look at the box. It was once used by Amazon.com to send stuff to our shop. When it gets to our customer, it will still have the old Amazon tape on it. The buffer material inside the box is all recycled. Sometimes it’s paper, sometimes peanuts, sometimes those puff packages. We save it all and reuse it.
We do this on purpose. We do it so that we can try our best to be environmentally friendly. It is one of our guiding principles–to be a zero waste company. We don’t always succeed, but we try. We save all our burlap bags and offer them for the price of shipping only. We recycle all the plastic grain-pro bags inside the burlap. We only roast to order so we don’t have any extra coffee sitting around which needs to be thrown out. We compost all the chaff that comes off the roasted coffee.
Granted we won’t have a huge impact on our world environmentally, but in our opinion, every little bit we can do to help is a step in the right direction.
We offer some of the very best coffees in the world, fresh roasted, all while doing our very, very best to give living wages to our supply chain and being a zero waste company. We feel the quality of our product more than makes up for eye-catching packaging. Yes, our coffee is slightly more expensive, but we feel our ethical and quality commitment is worth the cost.
