The smell of coffee in the morning, is there something even remotely better ? There are lots of tea types, some are bad, some are good but some manually selected tea leaves and coffee beans are just incredible. We support community projects and NGO’s that are committed to quality improvement and consequently price improvements for the coffee farmers – organisations such as TechnoServe for example have worked across East Africa to assist with coffee infrastructure and producer knowledge. If the quality is high enough we will buy Fair Trade coffees. This organisation contributes a social premium to a smallholder cooperative which can be used towards projects which are beneficial to the whole community such as primary schools or medical dispensaries.
Our tea pick today : Oolong Tea: Oolong tea is made from the same plant that produces black and green tea, but while black tea is fully oxidized and green tea is not oxidized, oolong is semi-oxidized, then rolled to give it its signature shape. Oolong could be green-ish or brown-ish in color, and the variations in flavors are vast. Reported Benefits: It’s less-researched than black or green tea, but some studies show oolong tea could help reduce the risk of diabetes. Plus, it comes with a range of antioxidants. Caffeine? Yes, but typically less than black tea. See more details on Unique loose-leaf tea UK.
Eco friendly coffee advice of the day : Get A Reusable Filter: While there are several, the most compelling reason to avoid paper filters is that a large portion of them are chlorine-bleached and end up in landfills. These filters then seep trace amounts of dioxins, chemicals toxic to human health, into watersheds, which distributes the dioxins to growing plants. Eco-friendly Aeropress reusable stainless steel filter: At the very least, look for TCF (total chlorine-free) or PCF (processed chlorine-free) labels on filters. However, reusable filters eliminate paper waste entirely, chlorine-free or not. Here are a few examples of these eco-friendly brewers: French Press, Stainless Steel Pour Over Cone, Aeropress + Steel Filters. Coffee brewed with metal filters has a rich flavor and full mouthfeel. If not for the eco-friendly factors, try them for the flavor!
