During UK Coffee Week thousands of participating coffee shops, retailers and foodservice outlets will be fundraising for Project Waterfall - a charitable initiative bringing clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities across the world.

Whether you donate money from every cup of coffee you serve, host events, or even organise town coffee crawls, your efforts will give coffee lovers across the UK the chance to support Project Waterfall, and make their cup matter, simply by enjoying their daily coffee.


Coffee is a powerful community · together we can make a real difference

Whether you’re a coffee drinker, independent business or market leader, UK Coffee Week provides an opportunity to have fun and give back.

100% of the funds you raise during UK Coffee Week goes to Project Waterfall’s efforts to bring clean water to coffee-growing communities throughout the world.

This is made possible thanks to the incredible support from our sponsors, who generously fund the running costs of the campaign.

the cause and this year’s project

UK Coffee Week is a fundraising campaign with Project Waterfall at its heart, an initiative bringing clean water and sanitation to coffee-growing communities around the world.

Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised over £1 million, changing over 37,000 lives in Nicaragua, Tanzania, Rwanda, Vietnam, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.

UK Coffee Week 2019 will continue to raise funds for Project Waterfall’s ongoing work in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia.
