We roast your coffee cleanly with biogas and solar energy
Our coffee roastery is situated in the seaside village of Tolkkinen in Porvoo in a spacious building. We wanted to utilise the large roof for a good purpose and got the idea in 2017 to build a solar power plant of our own. It was completed in early spring 2018. Of the 2,000 square metres of the roof, 500 were covered by solar panels delivered by our partner Solnet, and the panels produce approximately 45 MWh of renewable energy every year, supplying electricity for roasting our coffees. In addition to solar energy, we also use biogas in the heating of the roasters.
Our coffee packaging is now recyclable
In 2020, we adopted recyclable packaging materials for our own coffees, and we no longer use aluminum, which is typically used in coffee bags. Our coffee is now packaged in 100% recyclable packages, which keep out the oxygen, harmful for the storage of coffee.
Our coffee is 100% verified sustainable
We only use verified sustainable coffee. Most of our coffee is sourced from partnership programmes established with our partners in the countries of origin of the coffee. We have established partnership programmes with partners like Coffee & Climate, International Coffee Partners and Fairtrade.
The most concrete partnership programmes are ones in which farmers in a certain region are brought together and their working and living conditions are improved through concrete measures, aiming at more sustainable cultivation of coffee, and ensuring the well-being of the farming community. The measures may include training on better cultivation methods, building better coffee processing systems, or helping the farmers to gain entry to certification systems.
