We're proud to be a SLAVE-FREE ALLIANCE MEMBER
WE CAN ALL PAY COFFEE FARMERS A LIVING WAGE...
...AS LONG AS WE LEAVE THEM WITH THEIR ROASTING INCOME
Coffee is up to 20% lighter in weight after roasting. Roasting before shipping means FAR fewer cargo ships.

SUPPLIED EXCLUSIVELY BY NOT1BEAN
The richness of flavour for which Colombian coffee is celebrated is mainly down to an excellent climate, perfect soil and the exact right amount of rainfall.
A Simple SOLUTION
Value in coffee production is only ever generated at the roasting stage, and virtually all producers in developing countries are removed from the supply chain immediately before this point.
"Huge amounts of roasting income are diverted to consumer countries, the vast profits generated after that point out of reach for practically all coffee growers.
We never roast coffee outside of the developing country in which it was grown."

Why we're members of slave-free alliance
Slave-Free Alliance offers a range of high-quality services to protect businesses and supply chains from the threat of modern slavery. Given that the stated mission of NOT1BEAN is to eradicate modern-day slavery from coffee fields, it seemed more than natural to join forces with Slave-Free Alliance.
"Slave-Free Alliance is the business sector’s acknowledgment that slavery in supply chains is real and a key factor driving human trafficking in the developing world and across borders to countries like the UK.
It can affect any unprepared business, no matter their sector, though some industries are at particular risk – notably waste and recycling, agriculture, low-skilled manufacturing, hand car washes, beauty salons, and the hospitality and restaurant sector."
