Our Local Impact

The work we do and impact we make doesn't stop at origin. With our roastery based in East London, we’re conscious of how we can make sure that our business has a positive impact on local communities.

  • In 2021, we donated over 500,000 cups of coffee donated to FareShare, a charity dedicated to fighting hunger and food waste in the UK
  • In June 2022, we committed to donating 10% of all our online Natural Spirit sales to Pride in London's Unity Fund. Altogether we raised £625.62 which would be used to provide one-off grants to grassroots organisations, addressing the needs of the UK's LGBTQ+ community.
  • Since 2017, we’ve provided “The Community Blend” coffee to The Garden Café, based in Poplar, a project set up by Leaders in Community. This community space serves coffee and cake with affordable prices as well being a space for young people to gain valuable experience and expand their skillset.
  • Our Quality Control team facilitates roastery tours and seed-to-cup coffee talks to students of Well Grounded. Well Grounded is a social enterprise with a focus on providing highly-skilled Barista Training to vulnerable adults looking for work.
  • We have supported our neighbours at Cody Dock, a creative and community hub which sits on the River Lea (where we've also sponsored an photo exhibition) in achieving the Outstanding for Community Gardening Award (London in Bloom) and Gold for Community (Cody Road and South Crescent Business group) along with the other businesses in our area.

  • Together with Cody Dock, we’ve also helped to provide habitats for local wildlife such as bat boxes and bug hotels. Local school children have also been welcomed through the doors of the roastery to learn about roasting coffee.
  • We believe that a hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay. We are proud to be a Living Wage employer and part of the Living Wage Foundation.
