coffee ethic objective:
Helping people in recovery from drug & alcohol addiction reintegrate back to work and society | #tastesgoodtodogood
Grounded in ethics.
We're called 'Coffee Ethic' because our service is grounded in ethical and social values, supporting vulnerable people to re-integrate into work and society and to rebuild their lives. All our profit is reinvested into our charity, Druglink.
We offer people the chance to learn new skills & build confidence. Our training programme includes full barista training, food hygiene, first aid and customer service. Our volunteers receive a 'passport' - each 'passport' is designed to suit individual need, and tracks training progress and personal growth.
Benefiting individuals and communities.
We want our volunteers to fulfill their potential and we work together to overcome the effects of addiction, including fear, exclusion, insecurity and loneliness. We also want to increase understanding and awareness around recovery within local communities by highlighting the benefits of our reintegration programme.
Our mobile vehicles - the ‘Tuk Tuk’, and our new coffee van 'Florence' - travel to events and festivals, and are available for private hire. Find out more.

You can now enjoy our freshly roasted, fair trade and organic coffee from the comfort of your own home. Find out more.
