IMPACT No. 01
What is specialty coffee?
All our coffee is specialty coffee.
The term "specialty coffee" or "specialkaffe," as they say in good old Danish, is a term that covers the quality of the coffee. Specialty coffee is therefore coffee that has been grown, harvested, processed and roasted thoroughly and carefully.
The quality of specialty coffee is based, among other things, on a cupping scale with points from 1-100 created by the Specialty Coffee Association. When a coffee scores over 80 points on the cupping scale, it is defined as specialty coffee.
IMPACT No. 01
The taste, quality and responsibility of this coffee is bombastic. IMPACT No. 01 is a climate-neutral coffee according to the Net-Zero Standard .
This means that we and the farm have done a great job to reduce our CO2 emissions from coffee production by more than 90%. We compensate the remaining percentages with CO2 quotas, and the coffee thus becomes 100% CO2 neutral .
IMPACT No. 01 comes from the B Corp certified cooperative Sancoffee in Brazil, from the farm Santa Clara. The farm has recently been verified CO2-neutral, and this is precisely what has been able to grant that the coffee is climate-neutral according to the Net-Zero Standard.
IMPACT No. 01 is traded directly with the farmer-owned cooperative, so there is no middleman and the money goes directly to the farmer. In this way, we ensure good cooperation with full transparency.
IMPACT No. 02
Great taste and organic quality make this coffee a real crowd pleaser.
IMPACT No. 02 is Certified Organic , which means that it is completely free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. It is also shade-grown in the mountain forests of Honduras, which takes the nearby agriculture into account and promotes biodiversity . The shade cultivation gives a nice taste to the coffee too.
We trade IMPACT No. 02 directly with the agricultural cooperative Cafesmo in Honduras. This means that we avoid the middleman and at the same time can ensure a responsible payment to the cooperative and full transparency.
The responsible choice
Responsible coffee - what does it mean?
We do not compromise with our coffee, and therefore we do not refer to our coffee as sustainable coffee either. That's because we prefer to express accountability. This means, among other things, that we deal directly with farmers and pay them a decent price that they can actually live on.
In addition, we are also facing the climate crisis. This means that we buy coffee that is grown in ways that do not worsen the climate. This is seen, for example, in coffee, which is cultivated or naturally grows in forests (agroforestry) rather than cleared agriculture. When the coffee is grown in the forest, it grows in the shade (shade-grown), which gives the coffee some very specific flavor notes and increases biodiversity in the area.
In addition, we also work to reduce our own footprint on the climate. It helps that we look at our CO2 emissions every year and find out how we can reduce it. For example, we always choose to have our coffee sent on cargo ships rather than airplanes, because the CO2 emissions are much lower that way.
The knowledge we present as our responsibility is always available to you in our Transparency Report. We make a new one every year, so you can always follow our development and progress.
