Coffee Bag Recycling

Great news - any of the used coffee bags that we have sent out as part of the coffee subscription service can now be returned to us for recycling.

Sustainability is a top priority for us here at Dog & Hat and we always try to avoid using any unnecessary supplies in the business. However, one area that has been troubling us for some time (and is largely out of our control) is the recycling of the used coffee bags themselves.

Our service obviously generates a large number of used coffee bags each month and we have been looking at ways we can reduce our environmental impact in this area. Up to now it has been just too costly for us to provide a solution but we have just partnered with Terracycle to help make this a reality.

Melitta Molino Burr Grinder Testing

Melitta Molino Burr Grinder Testing

As a whole-bean only subscription service, one of the questions we get asked most is what grinder to buy.

Now, this can often open a can of worms as everyone has their own preferences and budgets… then chosen brew method will also impact your choice.

Sustainability

Sustainability

In this blog we’d like to shine a spotlight on our sustainability, environmental impact and carbon footprint policies.

As a mail order coffee subscription company here in the UK, we realise that we must always carefully monitor our climate footprint.  We have speciality green coffee shipped from origin thousands of miles away to storage warehouses in Europe,  From there the greens travel to our partner roasters (both here in the UK and further afield).  The roasted coffee then makes it to us and then finally to your doorstep to enjoy.

As such, we put environmental and sustainability at the centre of everything we do and there’s a couple of fairly new initiatives to get you up to speed with.

For the last few months we've been working behind the scenes on something pretty exciting and we're very pleased to introduce you to our first transatlantic roaster - Rabbit Hole Roasters from Montreal in Quebec, Canada.

The rest of the coffee lineup this month has a distinctly Yorkshire flavour to it with our local North Yorkshire roaster Roost Coffee joining returning favourites North Star and Casa Espresso from the west of the county.
