Life is full of questions and “what ifs”. We hope to provide at least some answers here …
A good grinder (or almost any grinder) is a good investment in coffee. The grinders main job is to destroy the cellulose walls and membranes that guard coffees volatile flavour components. This exposure allows for extraction however it significantly increases oxidation. Please buy a grinder and grind just before brewing. We may have an upcoming promotion that will showcase the importance of grinders for healthier and more flavourful cups.

Blends often hide the origins. Zero Footprint celebrates them. Blends will include 50% Honduras Cafe Solar while the supplies last.

100% of all coffee beans are traceable or we can't calculate and offset the footprint. 90% of all bean sourced are double certified, typically organic and fair trade. However, double certifications bodies do not exist in all producing countries and we are not closed to supporting other innovative and transparent certifications. All coffees used are detailed on the back label of every bag.
