Quality is also about the relationships we have with our suppliers and the relationships they themselves have with their networks and communities.
Our coffee roasters Rumble have direct relationships with all producers, ensuring quality of supply.
Most importantly they purchase all of their coffee via transparent trade. This means they publish all their purchase prices, which are well over market rate, so we can ensure producers are paid a fair price.
A price that allows them to reinvest in their people and their land.
For us it has always been important to brew our own coffee.
We wanted to ensure quality and consistency of the product was maintained and tweaked where required.
Our cold drip brewing machines have been custom built by co-founder Hamish and we brew every bottle of First Press Coffee you see on the shelf.
Local manufacture, recyclable packaging and composting our used coffee grounds are all ways that we reduce our footprint on the planet.
Of course, there is always more work to be done and ways we can improve.
A few things on our wishlist for 2021 are solar panels on our HQ and gaining B-Corp certification.
