Kimbo Espresso Italiano

We are excited to announce that Kimbo as an official sponsor for UK Coffee Week 2017!

Kimbo began over 50 years ago in Naples by three brothers in their father's bakery. From there, a thriving business grew and continues today. By seeking the best coffee, roasting and blending, they have become a leader in the Italian market and export to many other countries as well.

Their support of UK Coffee Week will help Project Waterfall raise much needed funds for a tri-country project bringing clean water and sanitation to coffee growing regions to schools in Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya.

‘At Kimbo we are very proud to have signed up to our first year with UK Coffee Week. We are excited to get involved in raising awareness (and funds!) for such a good cause and to support our customers in taking part in this vibrant and important week in our industry. We are sure this will be the first year of many working with UK Coffee Week as we continue to try and give back to coffee growing communities worldwide.’

As part of UK Coffee Week Kimbo will be collaborating with La Cucina Caldesi Cookery School to present an evening of Cooking with Coffee on the 12th April with food write and chef Ursula Ferrigno. Participants will prepare and eat a delicious three course meal, each using coffee as a key ingredient. Tickets are £80 and all profits will go to Project Waterfall, you can find out more and buy tickets here.

BRITA Professional’s continued support for Project Waterfall and UK Coffee Week has enabled us to reach thousands of people in coffee growing communities with clean drinking water and sanitation. In 2017, their support will be critical to the implementation of our tri-country project in partnership with WaterAid UK which aims to reach hundreds of children in schools across Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.

Glenn Roberts, sales director, BRITA Professional comments:

“Over 40 million coffees are consumed in the UK each week. Each of these cups provides an opportunity to make a difference during UK Coffee Week (10-16 April) when coffee shops and cafés across the nation get behind industry charity Project Waterfall. Fundraising takes place in lots of different ways – from special fundraising events to charitable donations for every cup sold – but all the funds go towards providing clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities. We’re proud to continue our support through sponsorship of this important week and urge operators to help make a difference to the lives of the farmers who grow our coffee.” 

BRITA Professional will also be teaming up with Project Waterfall at The London Coffee Festival for another year running, helping to keep the festival hydrated with a joint ‘hydration station’ which will raise even more funds for the Project Waterfall initiative.
