We have come from a grass roots organization which started off in an office above our cafe. From the beginning, we embraced the values of fairness, decency, warmth, kindness and the pursuit of excellence.
Our approach to coffee sourcing is no different. If we’re to continue to create excellent coffee, we need to ensure that the farmers who grow our beans are rewarded for the part they play in the process. At Caffè Nero, we owe our reputation to sourcing high quality beans, and we pay
premium prices for those beans.
At present, the vast majority of the beans in our unique blend are sourced from identifiable and traceable sources, and we are working hard to ensure we purchase every bean this way.
We’re also working with Rainforest Alliance on the certification of our beans and on encouraging sustainable livelihoods for our farmers.
Our commitment goes into other avenues as well. We are careful to recycle or recover as much of our waste as we possibly can. We strive to avoid sending waste to landfill, and we are always investigating ways to reduce our environmental impact further.
How we go about doing things is as important to us as when we first started.
And always will be.
