Capitalism gets a lot of stick. Most of it is totally justified. The fact is, unchecked capitalism incentivises turning all the planet’s resources into cash.
When it comes to our sustainability ethos, we’ve always been focused on facing the future - what do we want the world to look like in five, ten, twenty years?
For us, it means being carbon responsible, reducing our environmental impact using innovative solutions, and continuously investing in projects aligned with our commitment to being 100% carbon neutral.
We made the decision to celebrate Colombian coffee many months ago, but it seems all the more relevant now, given the political climate in Colombia. Our hearts go out to our friends and colleagues in Colombia who have been affected by the situation.
We’ve measured our carbon footprint for the last financial year and we want you to help us decide which projects to invest in! Cast your vote!
We only have a certain amount of time to achieve the climate goals set by the Paris agreement before the damage we've made to our planet is irreversible (only 9 years and counting ...).We could get depressed and give up, or we could all step up our game and do our bit
You may have tried the new additions to the bunch, our 1L ready to drink Latte and Mocha. Hacking the perfect coffee straight from the carton. So we hacked them even more, with some Latte & Mocha recipes to blow our tiny minds....(results may vary, as we were varying degrees of serious when making these).
We headed to Full Service LA to give away heaps of Oat M*lk as a reminder to register to vote and to encourage switching to a plant-based life.
Balancing out the impact we have on the planet is the least we can do. There’s still heaps more to do, and though we can’t kill all of our carbon emissions yet, we are working towards keeping more fossil fuels where they belong – buried in the ground.
Freedays are upon us! This Friday we have a few cafes participating in UK. Just pop down and grab an Oat M*lk coffee on us. It’s our way of helping cafes through this difficult period and helping spread the love for Minor Figures Oat M*lk.
Please enjoy responsibly and be sure to follow any safety guidelines that are in place. Please check cafe opening times,
Acidity is a wonderful but slippery term to try to get to grips with. Though often unfairly boxed in with connotations of ‘sourness’ or ‘bitterness’, the natural acidity found in coffee is actually the unsung hero in creating the bold spectrum of far-out flavours in your cup. When cultivated correctly, acids can add brightness, zeal and imagination to your cup, helping to tell the true story of the coffee you’re drinking and illuminate all of the vibrant characteristics of its origin.
Our most loyal friends—the cafe stockists who have been with us from day one—are taking the brunt of the uncertainty, the loss in regular customers, and the cash hit.
