Ethically sourced, organic and fair trade coffee beans: that’s where it all started over 20 years ago, and it’s the first step towards sustainable and responsible coffee. We work closely with coffee growers to reduce our environmental footprint at the source. Fairtrade certification of our coffees improves the lives of the people who work hard to bring you this delicious coffee, every day.
We aim to produce the
most sustainable coffee there is.
Sustainable coffee starts with a cleaner supply of green coffee beans and a reduced dependence on fossil fuels at every stage of processing.
Here is what we have planned regarding sustainability for the next few years. It’s a day-to-day job, and we’re proud to present you with the steps we intend to take in order to make this vision a reality.
Some of our green coffee beans from South America will soon be transported by sailboat. This alternative will allow us to use the wind, a clean and renewable energy, rather than the usual fossil fuels used for standard cargo ships. Vega and Ceiba, the first vessels in the fleet, will set sail in the coming months.
Electric Ground Transportation
The transportation of our coffee beans from the port to the factory and distributors will exclusively be carried out using our fleet of 100% electric trucks. We aim to rely mainly on energy sources provided by wind and electricity to transport our coffee beans, therefore reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. It’s another step towards a more sustainable distribution of our products, starting in 2023.
A New Eco-friendly Plant
The building of our new roasting facility will be completed in 2023. It will proudly bear the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. This internationally recognized certification attests that the building meets high environmental standards that are beneficial to the health of the planet and the humans that inhabit it. In addition, all the plant’s electrical energy will be sourced from hydroelectricity, one of the cleanest forms of energy on the planet.
We’re always looking for sustainable packaging that won’t end up in landfill. The challenge? Have a good shelf life while being compatible with our automatic equipment. We are working hard on this project to find a solution in the near future. It’s an interesting challenge, but one we’re ready to take on, no matter what.
“For us, innovation, sustainable development and social responsibility are at the heart of our daily concerns.”
