The coffee industry presents a unique set of moral and ethical challenges to navigate. Here’s how we keep ourselves on-track.
We’re at the end of a long line of amazing people who work hard to bring you the best possible coffee. We owe it to them to do our best in the final stage of the journey from farm to cup, by committing to the best possible quality from ourselves and the awesome businesses we supply. Quality coffee shouldn’t be an exclusive club; let’s make it accessible to everyone.
We aim to stay aware of our privilege, and follow our instinct and conscience on what feels right. We will remain deeply rooted in our local community in beautiful Argyll, whilst staying aware of our responsibilities on the global stage, by embracing opportunities to respect and empower our local partners and our amazing suppliers at origin.
We know how lucky we are to live, work and adventure in such a beautiful place and we recognise our responsibility to care for it. We aim to avoid green-washing and instead take meaningful steps to be good stewards of our environment. We will support the maintenance of our ancient native woodland to offset our carbon emissions, and we will audit every step of our process, from roasting to packing to shipping, to minimise our environmental impact.
To us, quality should always come first, which means there will sometimes be difficult decisions to be made to balance quality, social conscience and environmental responsibility. This will occasionally mean that we might not be able to make the environmental or social decisions we want, but we will always endeavour to be honest and transparent in our decision making process, and to constantly reevaluate our processes to keep the balance shifting in the right direction.
