Sustainable sourcing of coffee
We take coffee seriously and we think that only the best quality is good enough for our guests. Espresso House has decided to only serve Specialty Coffee from selected farms and cooperatives. Only 5% of all coffee in the world qualifies as Specialty Coffee, as it has to reach at least 80 points on a scale from 0-100 according to SCA cupping standards.
We want everyone to be able to enjoy a good cup of coffee both today and in the future. To serve not only the best coffee but also a coffee that has been sustainably produced is something we strive for. To be a part of a sustainable coffee future it is important for us to maintain good relationship with our farmers. We believe that relationship and cooperation is the way to transparency and sustainability in the supply chain of coffee. Therefore we visit each farm or cooperative regularly where we show our support and commitment. In 2018, Espresso House Group also implemented a third-party verification of our coffee with the aim to carry out farm practice assessments. With these assessments we are able to identify areas of improvements to be able to provide continuous support for sustainable coffee sourcing.
