Jute coffee is ethically sourced from cooperatives around the globe that work to give farmers an income, opportunities and access to community resources, including educational and water projects.
Their 100% arabica coffee beans are roasted by hand at their small roastery in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and packaged in a unique environmentally-friendly jute pouch. Each pouch is made from at least 70% sugarcane (from waste from the sugarcane industry) and is in a jute colour that is easily recyclable.
This fantastic company not only make incredible coffee but also sponsor bee hives at a local charity called Workbridge that delivers vocational training – such as beekeeping – to people with mental illness, learning disabilities or brain injuries. They also sort out the chaff from their beans and give it to a local farmer for animal feed…lucky pigs!
Ethiopia, the birthplace of arabica coffee? Legend has it that a ninth-century goatherd wondered why his animals got so lively after gorging themselves on a particular shrub…that shrub being arabica.
Not only have we Ethiopia to thank for the coffee species that today we cherish above all others but we may even have Ethiopia to thank for our favourite drink’s name, which is said to be linked to the province of Kaffa.
Based in the country’s southwest, where ancient trees have shaded arabica plants for centuries, the beans for this blend come from the Sheko Cooperative which takes its name from the Sheko people. Indigenous to the region, the Sheko’s influence on Ethiopia’s coffee heritage is immeasurable.
Ethiopia’s producers are the Willy Wonkas of the coffee world; their beans are responsible for some of the most memorable and delightful coffees out there. With its sparkling notes of plum, cocoa and nectarine, we think our Ethiopia single origin is your golden ticket to a remarkable cup. It’s particularly special as a long black.
