GOE Coffee - 100% ethical as nature intended
GOE Coffee is committed to the Christian values of justice and fairness. Therefore we ensure the coffee you drink is sustainable and supports the communities that grow it. We support and help fund the growth of ethical coffee plantations across the world, both by encouraging the sharing of best-practice techniques and by paying farmers a fair premium on the sustainable coffee they produce.
We believe great coffee shouldn’t cost the earth
We want to ensure that GOE coffee is environmentally sustainable and does not harm the planet. To this end, we work alongside farmers to ensure our plantations are operated sustainably, and organically when possible. We share best-practice techniques – in harvesting, irrigating, fertilising and soil protection – which aim to improve crop yield while reducing production costs. And we work exclusively with like-minded roasteries, who reinvest their profit back into supporting local people and projects.
We believe in fair trade
At GOE, we are committed to boosting the production of certified coffee. Where our coffee is Fair Trade, Organic or Rainforest Alliance certified, we choose to invest a 5% premium to encourage the communities’ continued efforts towards sourcing sustainably. However, we also recognise that for many coffee farmers, who are struggling for economic survival, certification is currently out of reach. In these instances, we support the adoption of best practices to produce sustainably grown coffee, and pay the farmers a 10% premium on the market price, giving them a platform to achieve full certification.
We believe we can help make a difference
GOE coffee is a celebration of differences. Different beans, roasts, blends and flavours. But it is also a celebration of togetherness, shared experience and one very precious planet. Our multi-faceted approach to sourcing sustainable coffee offers practical support to coffee farmers across the world. And GOE is also helping people closer to home, through our continued support of Premier Lifeline. Every bag of coffee we sell makes a little bit more difference. So when you next have a cup of GOE coffee, enjoy that nice, warm feeling inside!
