GOOD THINGS HAPPEN OVER GOOD COFFEE – AND REFRESHINGLY GOOD PEPPERSMITH.
As much as we love our mints at Peppersmith HQ we also have a lot of love our coffee. As do a lot of our lovely community of Peppersmith lovers out there too. – What better way to refresh after a coffee, than delish, sugar free Peppersmith mints or gum, right?!
So, we could not be more proud to partner with UK Coffee Week for 2023 - the nation’s biggest celebration of coffee - that also helps change lives in coffee growing communities. In case you’re new to this coffee infused week, read on…
What is UK Coffee Week?
Celebrating all things coffee across the land 16th-22nd October 2023, UK Coffee Week brings likeminded coffee shops, retailers, outlets, coffee drinkers and lovers, together for one week each year. Drinking a lot of – you guessed it – coffee! And raising awareness and money for charity, Project Waterfall.
The charity’s mission is to unite the coffee industry and coffee consumers to give back to the communities growing our coffee, by investing in sustainable clean water, sanitation and hygiene projects - 100% of funds raised by UK Coffee Week go straight to Project Waterfall.
Did you know, Ethiopia is considered the biological and cultural home of coffee? This year the event and charity’s focus is in the Berbere region of Ethiopia.
Despite this, 82% of households in the Berbere area use water from unprotected sources, so working in partnership with the local government as well as WaterAid, Project Waterfall will build a solar powered multi-village gravity-flow water system, that will provide water to 40,000 people. The new infrastructure will be climate resistant and accessible to everyone in the area.
We think that is pretty special – you can understand why we’re so proud to be getting involved and supporting this very special charity and area of the world.
