Founded in the summer of 2020, Blossom Coffee Roasters is a speciality coffee company born and based in Manchester. A focus on sustainability underpins everything we do. From the way we source our green coffee, to the way we run our business here in the UK, our aim is to have a positive impact on people and the planet.
As with many of life’s luxuries we currently take for granted, coffee is facing a challenging and uncertain future. As temperatures rise and extreme weather grows more frequent, coffee becomes increasingly susceptible to diseases, pests, and drought, while productivity and quality both fall. World Coffee Research have predicted that without immediate intervention, 46-49% of land currently used for coffee production will become unsuitable by 2050.
We need an urgent but thoughtful shift in the way we buy and consume our morning pick-me-up, and we all have an essential role to play in igniting conversations around the role our buying habits play in protecting our natural environment.
We believe the best way for us to contribute to this shift is through developing, supporting, and progressing transparent relationships throughout our supply chains: above all else, sustainability in the coffee industry starts with ensuring financial stability for the farmers.
We also work hard behind the scenes to ensure that our commitment to a sustainable future is reflected in our operating practices here in the UK.
We are one of the first coffee roasters in country to be certified as a CarbonNeutral® company, and as a pending B Corp we have joined the frontline of a global movement of like-minded companies all using business as a force for good.
