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

Whether they donate money from every cup of coffee they serve, host events, or even organise town coffee crawls, their efforts 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 is an opportunity for you to have fun and give back.

100% of the funds raised during the week go to Project Waterfall’s efforts to bring clean water, education and sanitation 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.
