Impact story

Between 300 to 500 small-scale independent farms are collectively responsible for the beans that are ground to make our Rwenzori Midnight Flyer coffee. Each of these is taken to the Agri Evolve Washing Station for processing, an initiative that forms part of a wider project established by our import partners, Omwani.

Thanks to Agri Evolve, farmers now have an outlet to sell their unprocessed crops for a fair market price. After the beans are washed, processed, and exported, all proceeds are directed back into the local community, funding education, new facilities, training, and equipment, to empower the farmers to increase their yield and enjoy greater profits.

Our Daterra Grutta originates from the Cerrado region of Brazil and is imported via our partners Daterra, who are at the forefront of sustainability and innovation. Already the world’s first B Corp coffee farm, Daterra’s impassioned and unyielding commitment to environmental conservation has now resulted in them achieving carbon negative status.

The farm’s dedication to carbon sequestration includes the planting and restoring of 20 million trees and the creation of 3 new water springs a year. It also donates excess solar power it generates to public institutions in the city of Patrocinio.

Precisely focusing our coffee impact

Rather than build our own impact goals we have used the United Nations’ framework of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide how we purchase our coffee. This enables us to align our impact with some of the biggest social and environmental challenges we face today.
