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

Millions of cups of coffee are sold every day in the UK. Every one of these provides an opportunity to make a difference.

During UK Coffee Week millions of coffee lovers will be making their cup matter by visiting participating coffee shops and retailers.

Join the movement and together we will make a real difference.

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.
