Caring from crop to cup
At Costa we care about the communities we serve and the world we live in.
We constantly strive to reduce our impact on the environment. We think carefully about the materials we use, choose clever machinery and our recyclable paper cups are some of the most eco-friendly in the world. From 100% Rainforest Alliance certified beans to the Costa Foundation, created to look after coffee-growing communities; it’s all about caring, from crop to cup.
We're constantly striving to reduce our impact on the environment. Wherever we can we recycle, use sustainable materials, technologically smart machinery and renewable energy. Our paper cups are some of the most eco-friendly in the world.
All of our coffee is 100% Rainforest Alliance certified(TM), bringing healthcare, education and sustainable crops to our farmers, workers and their families ensuring their land is taken care of in the best possible way.
The Costa Foundation provides coffee-growing farmers and their communities with long-term support, particularly with access to education. To date we have built schools and improved educational facilities in many countries from Colombia to Vietnam.
Your coffee doesn't just taste good. It does good too.
Every cup you buy helps educate a child in one of our coffee-growing communities.
Thank you for your support.
