Rivers Drinkware And Accessories

A Japanese brand with a focus on all things coffee and drinkware, River's Drinkware products include those for specialty coffee as much as outdoor activities and everyday life. Minimal design yet surprisingly functional, Rivers have gained widespread support from campers, coffee geeks, and many others.

From their base in Tokyo, Rivers Drinkware epitomises the Japanese design philosophy of combining understated quality with simple, effective functionality. The company was established back in 2000 by two people with the same ideas in mind – 'To propose new lifestyles and culture to people, and create new things that people will use with affection in their daily lives.' Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength, creating products that aren’t only unique in appearance, but unique in the way that they function too.

Coffee shop owners are under mounting pressure to do more to decrease the number of disposable coffee cups ending up on landfill sites. As such, brands like Rivers Drinkware are experimenting with ways that they can help, too, by offering sustainable, durable and versatile vessels that can be reused again and again.

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.
