‘A partnership transforming lives through coffee’
Roasted in East London by Union Hand-Roasted Coffee, this exciting collaboration with Company of Cooks supports Well Grounded in their mission to help Londoners into work in the speciality coffee industry, providing barista training, qualifications, work placements, mentorship and employment to those who need it most.
It also supports farmers and cooperatives in Peru via the Union Direct Trade sourcing initiative, ensuring that a fair price is paid for this special coffee so that the communities at both ends of the supply chain benefit.
Meanwhile, those at Well Grounded will receive a donation for every kilogram of Community Blend sold, which is expected to amount to £75,000 in the first year.
The coffee itself has a natural sweetness and gentle acidity with notes of red berry jam, dark chocolate and walnut.
Company of Cooks is a long-term partner of Well Grounded, having provided over 3,000 work placement hours to Well Grounded trainees and employed 68 graduates to date.
Holding your event at BMA House not only means you’ll be in a leading sustainable venue, but you’ll also receive great tasting coffee and a personal feel-good factor knowing every sip contributes towards the community.
