With Nature In Mind
Our focus on a sustainable future, for the present.
Coaltown is taking big steps towards a sustainable future in 2019 for all areas of the business, from our direct relationships with quality growers around the world, to our disposable packaging range and reusable products.
We understand that the farmers are at the heart of what makes quality coffee rather than any supplier or third party. That's why we go the extra mile to go straight to the source and cut out and middleman. We like to give credit to the farmers at the origin of coffee and that's why out ethos is to pay fairly for the dedication and effort they adopt everyday. We believe the strength and fairness of the relationship between farmer and producer has a direct impact on the finished quality of the coffee produced.
Reusables & Recyclables
One of our goals for 2019 is to fulfil our ambition of replacing all our packaging with biodegradable or reusable alternatives. We have already made great progress with our reusable range of keepcups, our Oeko-Tex organic range of coaltown t-shirts and our branded shipping packaging. We are also excited to be introducing our compostable takeaway cups and our next generation coffee bags later this year.
The Coaltown Academy encompasses the knowledge base we have gained in the industry since setting off in 2013. The Academy is a core branch of our business and our way of providing our local community with a new and exciting industry to learn and become involved in. Our aim is to educate local people and bring them into the exciting world of fifth wave coffee and provide them with a new career path in a rapidly growing industry.
