The Underground Collaborative strive to break the cycle of homelessness by finding employment and housing solutions. We are stoked to be a part of their Ground + Co project – a café in Perth’s CBD that will train and employ marginalised individuals, giving them at least 6 months experience to help them to improve their circumstances through both employment and, perhaps more importantly, community involvement.theunderground.org.au
In our journey to bring delicious coffee to life, we come across a range of opportunities that grab at our heart strings and offer us the chance to reach out and impact people positively.
After years of direct trade sourcing, we’ve developed some incredible relationships and been offered a unique insight into the lives of many of our partners at origin. But it’s not just supplying countries the coffee chain touches, so we also believe in supporting local grassroots initiatives in our own backyard – Australia.
Take a quick look at some of the projects below; some might even be in your local area!
