It’s Coffee Week!

Coffee Week is a celebration of the vibrant and thriving coffee scene. The purpose of this celebration is to unite the coffee industry and its customers to raise money for people in need that are also part of the World’s coffee growing communities. In doing so, we not only unite the coffee industry, but the global coffee community as a whole.

During Coffee Week, Moving Beans will be donating 10% of its sales to Project Waterfall. From helping the environment by eliminating polluting plastic waste, Moving Beans is now also going to do it’s part to help the global coffee community.

Project Waterfall is an initiative established to bring clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities all around the world.

This year, Coffee Week 2018 and Project Waterfall have partnered up to raise funds for a new project in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia. The country is particularly special to all of us coffee drinkers, since Ethiopia is considered the biological and cultural home of coffee. 38% of the people living in Jabi Tehnan rely on coffee for their livelihood.

Moreover, Ethiopia is also one of the countries that struggles most with the water crisis. 75% of the population lack access to clean water and 95% lack access to sanitation. This project aims to bring clean drinking water and sanitation to 7,000 people over the next 4 years!

Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised £800,000, changing over 27,000 lives in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Rwanda, Vietnam, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.

Coffee Week is a fundraising campaign with Project Waterfall at its heart, raising money to bring clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities. Learn more about UK Coffee Week 2018 here.

What does it mean that coffee has strength? Is it going to knock me out? Because there is no standard that provides coffee strength guidance, this term has been widely misunderstood, used in very different contexts and, as a result, it creates confusion amongst many.

What is all the fuss about the water?
What is all the fuss about the water?

October 15, 2020

Water 💧 is the quiet and elusive partner of coffee. You need it to make coffee and it can change the flavour of it depending on the subtle differences in water composition. Recently, there has been a resurrection of research around the water composition and the quality of coffee. 👩🏽‍🔬 A key notion to take on board is that good tasting water does not necessarily mean good tasting coffee. For example, the bicarbonate content that makes a branded bottled water very smooth water to drink is basically responsible for removing acidity and sweetness in coffee.
