6th October 2022: Next week marks the start of UK Coffee Week – a spectacular celebration of coffee which runs from 10-16 of October and will see the UK Coffee industry and its customers come together to celebrate all things coffee while raising funds for coffee growing communities. Hospitality businesses of all shapes and sizes fundraise by donating from every cup or bag of coffee sold, or by running events and activities in store.
A host of activities will be taking place across the country, including Latte Art Throwdowns, raffle competitions with some great prizes, Espresso Martini parties and more. You can find out where your closest coffee shop is that will be taking part by visiting the UK Coffee Week map and What’s On page.
The UK Coffee Week bus will also be back for an interactive pop-up at Boxpark Shoreditch on the 13th and 14th of October. The bus will be serving up free plant powered coffee from Alpro and Caravan Coffee Roasters.
Since 2011, the UK Coffee Week community has raised over £800,000 for Project Waterfall, reaching over 45,000 people with clean drinking water, sanitation and education.
The funds raised during UK Coffee Week 2022 will go to Project Waterfall’s new initiative in the Berbere district of Ethiopia. 40,000 people will have access to clean water and sanitation when this 3-year project is completed.
Director of Project Waterfall and UK Coffee Week Rebecca Hodgson said:
“UK Coffee Week is about celebrating the coffee industry as well as supporting coffee-growing communities. The campaign is an opportunity for us to all come together and make a real impact on the communities that grow our coffee by providing them with a sustainable source of clean drinking water and sanitation.
As Project Waterfall’s flagship fundraising campaign, UK Coffee Week gives every coffee shop the power to make a difference no matter their size, while engaging their team and having fun!”
Headline sponsor Alpro and category sponsors Fulfil and Green Rock Manufacturing are excited to support the campaign. Graham Kelly, Head of Coffee at Alpro, said: “As a long-standing supporter of UK Coffee Week, we’re excited to be taking this a step further by becoming headline sponsor in 2022. Project Waterfall is an excellent initiative, and we’re proud that we’re playing a bigger role this year in driving even more donations.”
