About the client

 

 

Our client is an organic coffee company based in West London. They were founded in 2012 when Nespresso lost their patent on the capsules. They believed that there was a gap in the market for people to enjoy organic, fair-trade coffee in the convenience of a capsule. Since then they have grown the business from just capsules to a full range of beans, grounds and recently coffee bags. Sustainability is at the forefront of the brand's values, from sourcing the coffee through fair-trade, seeking the best Soil Association certified organic beans and ensuring the capsules are as recyclable as they possibly can be. They have grown their national retail presence in the U.K. (July launching in both Tesco and Waitrose), but also supply hotels (in over 3,000 rooms worldwide), selling on Amazon, Ocado and their own Shopify website.
