The scent of hot tea on a cold day, is there something even remotely better ? There are lots of coffee types, some are bad, some are good but some manually selected tea leaves and coffee beans are just amazing. All of our coffees are purchased outright whereby a price is paid for the quality. We therefore divorce ourselves from the world coffee market and guarantee to pay a price that covers the cost of production and includes a healthy margin for the farmer which is always at least 20% above the cost of production. When sourcing coffee, quality is generally our first priority but when working with larger estates in Latin America, we feel it is essential to work alongside certifications such as Rainforest Alliance or Utz. These organisations have principles embedded in International Labour law (ILO) which assure us that a great price is not only paid to the farmer but that the benefits of working with a specialty buyer cascade down to all of the farm workers too. Such certifications also include environmental standards designed for the sustainability of agricultural land and its natural eco-systems.
Our tea pick today : Matcha: Of the many different types of tea, Matcha is a little peculiar. You won’t find matcha leaves—this green tea comes as a stone-ground powder, and is so beloved in Japan that there’s a ceremony centered around how to prepare and serve it. If you see green-tea ice cream, that’s derived from matcha. Sencha: Sencha is also one of the most-popular Japanese teas, but it differs from matcha in that it’s served as leaves, not as a powder, and grown in the sunlight (whereas matcha is grown in shaded areas).

Eco friendly coffee tip of the day : Get A Reusable Filter: While there are several, the most compelling reason to avoid paper filters is that a large portion of them are chlorine-bleached and end up in landfills. These filters then seep trace amounts of dioxins, chemicals toxic to human health, into watersheds, which distributes the dioxins to growing plants. Eco-friendly Aeropress reusable stainless steel filter: At the very least, look for TCF (total chlorine-free) or PCF (processed chlorine-free) labels on filters. However, reusable filters eliminate paper waste entirely, chlorine-free or not. Here are a few examples of these eco-friendly brewers: French Press, Stainless Steel Pour Over Cone, Aeropress + Steel Filters. Coffee brewed with metal filters has a rich flavor and full mouthfeel. If not for the eco-friendly factors, try them for the flavor!
