our ethos

coffee for the people

we believe in the power of community. our goal is to make specialty coffee approachable and accessible to bring people together over our favourite brew.

our intention is to conduct our business based on our own ethical & sustainable principles to ensure we’re limiting or reversing our footprint. we continuously re-evaluate our practices to find the best solutions that support our vision to leave the industry, and the earth, in a better place than we found it.

we seek to add value to others where we can. we are very conscious of the impact we can have financially, from the farmer through to the consumer and the communities they live in. we want to challenge the status quo and continually question what we do and how we do it. we don’t believe in taking shortcuts or looking for the quick wins. we always work towards genuine, organic growth.

we like to stay in our own lane and actively choose not to compare or compete. we march to the beat of our own drum, stay true to ourselves and to our brand. each decision is made collaboratively with integrity and thought.

we have a thirst for knowledge and we’re always looking to continue learning and honing our craft. we don’t assume we have all the answers or that the answers will be the same as they were yesterday. we also love any opportunity to share our knowledge. our doors are always open to those who want to learn.

we provide an inclusive workplace culture, one which creates the framework to support the personal and professional growth of our people. empathy, honesty and authenticity are key values we ourselves hold and look for in those we work alongside.

teaming up with like-minded partners to create real, long-lasting relationships makes this all possible; whether it’s the farms we source from, the cafes we partner with, or the suppliers we choose.

above all, we love what we do! we love coffee, like a lot. we are extremely grateful to be able to share our passion, knowledge, beans and the stories they carry, with all of you.

thanks for coming along for the ride!

MORE ABOUT US

community initiatives

doin' our bit

doin' our bit

our tangible list of sustainable actions including our carbon neutral certification, sourcing guidelines, community initiatives & more.

 

we don’t think sustainability should be a question for businesses, but an expectation.
we’re committed to running ours with the least impact on the earth as possible.

‘sustainable’ can be an easy marketing tool, a way for companies to greenwash, but what does sustainability mean?
it’s about meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to be able to meet theirs.

for us, it’s a call to action, one that forms the pillars of our ethos, and something we think about in every decision we make. sustainability continues to be a huge driver for the future of our brand and, while we’re forever seeking to do our bit for the environment, we’re also focused on the economic & social sustainability of our business & the industry we love.

we’re committed to bringing coffee & community together while minimising our footprint. our aim is to work with like-minded partners, both here & abroad, who share our focus for quality, sustainability & social responsibility. to ensure we leave the coffee industry (and the earth) in a better position than when we found it.

we’re always looking to do better in this space – check back here for updates on our progress.
