Why we love coffee company Jute
Looking for the perfect bean (coffee, that is, not baked!) and a sustainable, guilt-free caffeine fix? Ohh hello Jute Coffee. If you love your coffee, here's why you should make the switch.
Ever wondered where your coffee comes from? Possibly not, but while your caffeine hit is short-lived, the environmental impacts can linger. One local company trying to make a big change is Market Harborough-based coffee company Jute.
1. They support small cooperatives
This cool coffee company source outstanding quality, 100% arabica coffee from small cooperatives around the globe from Columbia to Costa Rica which work to give farmers an income, opportunities and access to community resources, including educational and water projects.
2. Jute by name, Jute by nature
The eco-conscious company pride themselves on their low impact packaging and use a handy jute pouch made from at least 70% sugarcane (waste from the sugarcane industry). These are much easier to recycle than compostable coffee bags and the natural fabric also helps to keep those lovely Arabica beans in tip-top condition. Jut also stock reusable cups which are also 100% recyclable and supply wholesale coffee using an innovative zero-waste refillable tub. These tubs are designed to last 25 years before being recycled – saving 1,000 coffee bags from landfill per tub. Wowzer!
3. They’re buzzing about bees
Not only do these guys want to make amazing coffee while positively impacting our environment and reducing waste, they are also helping to make our natural world thrive. For every 500 kg of coffee sold, they sponsor a beehive – a small but kind step towards sustainability. It’s their way of saying a ‘thank you’ to those busy, coffee-pollinating bees. So even without you knowing, your early morning latte can be doing something pretty amazing – other than just giving you a caffeine boost!
4. They make sustainable fuel
They take their used coffee grounds from their commercial partners to be recycled into sustainable products like coffee logs. This uses the untapped energy contained in the grounds to give them a second life as coffee logs which are perfect for burning in domestic wood burners and multi-fuel stoves. The coffee logs burn more efficiently than kiln-dried wood, and provide a sustainable alternative to conventional solid fuels. Impressive much?!
Their snazzy subscription service
If you missed your regular caffeine fix during lockdown, they’ve just launched a brand new coffee subscription service. Simply decide how often you want a delivery, choose your grind style, blend and then wait for it to be delivered in a letterbox-friendly package and fully recyclable of course!
Jute. Myriad House, 112 St. Marys Road, Market Harborough, LE16 7DX.
