Thanks to an exciting new partnership, you can now support our work by drinking great coffee!
As part of their commitment to creating a more just world, Brisbane-based coffee company Blackstar Coffee Roasters have agreed to donate 10% from each coffee subscription towards our projects in Timor-Leste!
UnitingWorld supporters can also enjoy free delivery as well as a 10% personal discount on subscriptions.
AND for every kilogram of coffee sold, Blackstar will plant three trees here in Australia with Landcare and overseas through TREES.ORG.
If you’d like to try out the beans/grinds before signing up for a regular delivery, enjoy a sample pack with 30% discount.
While most of us love a good brew, you’re probably also aware that the farmers who supply the world’s coffee aren’t always well paid and the land on which they farm is sometimes not protected from clearing practices that damage the environment.
Where possible, Blackstar buys green beans directly from the coffee producers. Where that isn’t the case, they commit to only buy from importers that have a direct relationship with the farmers and cooperatives. Blackstar place a high value on community, environmental and specialty coffee projects funded and supported by their suppliers. You can find out more about their commitment to ethical coffee supplies and social justice by visiting their website here.
We’re really excited about this new partnership to fight poverty in Timor Leste and hope the coffee fanatics out there are too!
Together we can make a big difference by making a little switch.
