It's well documented that prisoners are much more likely to re-offend after release if they are without training and jobs. That's where New Ground fits in. They roast high grade, speciality coffee in Oxford and offer training and work opportunities for ex-offenders across the Thames Valley.

They work with small-scale farmers who produce the best coffees around the world and ensure that these farmers are paid fairly and their communities are positively impacted.

The roasters work hard to get the most out of each coffee, and so each one is roasted differently to fully develop all the flavours, and to showcase what makes them distinct. The resulting cup should be clean and clear - but New Ground will let you be the judge of that.

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.
