What is UK Coffee Week?

Changing Lives, One Cup at a Time.

Who We Are

UK Coffee Week is a nationwide fundraising campaign that takes place in thousands of coffee shops across the country.

100% of donations received from UK Coffee Week will go to Project Waterfall, an initiative dedicated to bringing clean water facilities to coffee growing communities.

Why Water?

Water and coffee are intimately linked. From the 37 gallons of water it take to grow the beans for a single cup of coffee to the water that makes up 98% of your daily brew, water is integral to the creation of a perfect cup of coffee. 

Water is also integral to the lives of the farmers who grow our coffee. 663 million people around the world do not have access to safe, clean water, with 90% of our coffee produced in the developing countries where the water facilities are scarce. 

In Ethiopia, one of the world's major coffee producing countries, the principle causes of death amongst children under the age of five are preventable water-related diseases.
