Halvo Speciality Coffee Roasters

Born in 2021, Halvo have been on a mission to make their industry more environmentally friendly to the planet, whilst also bringing delicious and amazing coffee to like-minded people. During the unprecedented times of 2020, Bailey White found himself drinking a lot more coffee at home than usual, and started to notice the amount of plastic bags, non recyclable packaging, and lack of environmental support in the coffee industry. Thinking there must be a better way, he founded Halvo and set out to make coffee more sustainable for everyone.

Halvo believe we should put our planet, and people before our profits. When starting out, Halvo made sure to make this a core foundation in their business, and are proud to be one of a small handful coffee roasteries in the UK to donate a minimum of 1% of their sales to 1% for The Planet; use plastic-free packaging for their bags and packaging; plant 4 trees for every kilogram of coffee they roast; donate 20p for every kilogram of green coffee they buy to World Coffee Research, and; actively reduce their carbon emissions and where they can't, they'll offset these, becoming carbon neutral.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)
Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
