UK Coffee Week: 29th April - 5th May

UK Coffee Week - What’s It All About?

This year we’re taking part in UK Coffee Week (29 April - 5 May). A week that brings the nation together to celebrate coffee, have fun, and raise valuable funds for Project Waterfall - a charitable initiative delivering clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities.

Throughout the week thousands of coffee businesses like ours will be fundraising through a variety of different ways. Some donate money from every cup of coffee they serve, others host events or even organise town coffee crawls.

However they decide to raise funds, they’ll be giving coffee lovers across the UK the chance to make their cup matter for Project Waterfall.

Why Project Waterfall?

844 million people around the world can’t access clean water. The majority live in isolated, rural areas - the same areas growing our coffee.

100% of the funds raised during this year's UK Coffee Week will go to Project Waterfall’s ongoing work in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia. This work began in 2018, in partnership with WaterAid UK, with the aim of bringing clean drinking water and sanitation to 10,000 people in the area over the next 3 years.

Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised over £1 million and changed more than 40,000 lives in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Rwanda, Vietnam, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.

How You Can Support

Between 29 April - 5 May we will be supporting the project in Ethiopia by donating:

  • £1 from every 250g bag and £5 from every 1kg bag of our Ethiopia Biftu Gudina coffee purchased on our online store

  • The £2.99 shipping fee for any purchase on our online store

  • 50% of all coffee experience voucher purchases on our online store
