A nationwide fundraising initiative to give back to the communities which grow our coffee 

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

What is UK Coffee Week?

All funds raised during this week go directly to Project Waterfall, an initiative established to bring clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities around the world.
