Source Climate Change Coffee Uganda Roast & Ground

Description

  • Organic medium dark roast coffee, with its own carbon offsets from reforestation and conservation projects. For every bag of coffee sold, local farmers plant trees to support the forest and their families.
  • This is a unique speciality (SCAA) single origin coffee with a deliciously smooth, medium-dark roast, combining chocolate notes with a toasty aroma to make a round flavoured and aromatic cup.
  • This coffee is grown by some 300 organic coffee farmers on the slopes of Mount Elgon. The conservation project provides a safeguard for Mount Elgon National Park and Central Forest - one of the most diverse ecosystems in Africa - which in turn protects hundreds of animal species including forest monkeys and antelope which graze on the mountainside.

Source Climate Change coffee a conservation led coffee company buying organic single origin coffees from around the world. Based in Harrogate, the company was set up by Cristina Talens, after she visited the Amazon forest in Peru, where she saw first-hand the impact of rainforest destruction on local communities, their crops, climate change and biodiversity. Today, the company's mission is to bring you the finest tasting organic and speciality coffees from around the world, produced by growers committed to reforestation and conservation. Each Source Climate Change Coffee has its own unique character and flavour, determined by the characteristics of the soil and altitude of the cloud forest where it is grown. 


Deforestation accounts for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Source is the only conservation-led coffee company buying coffees from reforestation projects in ecological hotspots - the single most effective way to combat climate change is to plant more trees and protect standing forests. The company works with the Lorna Young Foundation to develop radio training programmes for smallholder farmers on their crops, yields and sustainable land management techniques to improve their adaptation strategies to climate change. Voted as one of the most ethical coffees in the UK, by Ethical Consumer Magazine in 2018.
