uk coffee week will be back 16-22 April 2018

A nationwide celebration of coffee that also raises funds for coffee growing communities.

You can’t make coffee without fresh water - but more importantly we can’t live healthy lives without fresh water either. It is our most precious resource, so I am very proud to be a part of any initiative which extols the virtues of coffee with friends while helping provide fresh water for those who most need it.
— Stephen Fry
