It's not a secret that making coffee can be a wasteful process, as with most specialized culinary pursuits. It's with this knowledge that we aim to reduce that waste, and our general footprint through coffee. By aiming to have more thoughtful and conscientious business and coffee practices, we can contribute to a broader change in the industry and in food service as a whole. 


Recycling, refurbishing, and reusing are all part of our day to day operations, and we are constantly looking for new ways to reduce waste in all aspects of our operations. We regularly reuse product boxes to ship items to customers, and never dispose of a truly expired machine without first salvaging perfectly good parts for future repairs and use. Way before a machine is declared garbage, our service team is constantly fixing, repairing and tuning machines that would often be considered broken and replaced, landing that machine in the garbage. We want to avoid that at all costs, which is why we offer such comprehensive service for a wide range of coffee machines and products.


To help customers extend their life of their products, we offer guidance and tutorials on cleaning, maintenance and care, so that your machine can run smoothly for a long time, and to avoid the need to replace your makers and grinders every 2 years. Reducing consumption at the source, by extending the lifespan of the products you already have is one of the best ways to have an immediate, individual impact on waste production. 


In our office and store, we strive to not use more power than is necessary, by not having excessive lighting, using more computers and devices than necessary, and most importantly, only using machines as needed. With a showroom floor full of machines, we only turn on what we need, when we need it.


Lastly, we carry a huge variety of both products with an environmentally conscious focus, and items that provide alternatives to more wasteful brew methods. From hand powered grinders and manual brew equipment, to recyclable coffee capsules and pods, we offer you ways to take steps in your coffee routine to reduce waste and improve sustainability.
