400 Billion cups consumed a year
149.3 million 60kg bags consumed in 2014
59.12g of CO2 generated from bean to cup
500,000 tonnes of coffee waste to landfill each year in the UK alone
1.8 million tonnes of CO2 emissions produced each year in the UK alone
Changing the way we consume coffee
Over 400 billion Cups of Coffee are consumed annually, creating a staggering amount of waste for landfill and harmful CO2 Emissions.
We take pride in our commitment to the environment and our growers. Whilst we are Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance Certified; we felt not enough was being done once coffee left our warehouses. That's why we developed Eco Roast Technology - a carbon reducing, zero waste process to completely reduce the impact that coffee consumption has on the environment.
Benefits of Eco Roast Coffee
We deliver coffee and collect waste, eliminating the need for landfill.
Our patented process reduces the harm roasting does.
Our Eco Roast Technology is sustainable; using coffee to roast coffee.
The EcoRoast Process
Our patented process is outlined below; it is sustainable, environmentally friendly and reduces landfill, solving all of the issues of the current situation.
We use groundbreaking technology to harness the energy from waste coffee products to produce a biomass fuel; which is then used to fuel our unique biomass fueled coffee roaster.
The roaster is a new concept that will uses waste coffee grounds to produce freshly roasted coffee to be consumed, collected and reused - creating a sustainable, environmentally friendly process that can be used by any sized company.
Once our coffee is consumed it is stored for collection. We then deliver fresh coffee and return the waste for processing in to our eco-roast process to begin the cycle all over again. By collecting the waste at the same time as delivering the coffee, we also reduce the amount of carbon that would be generated in the collection of coffee waste to the landfill.
