Creative and colourful packaging comes at a cost. We're humble about ours

Issue: Printed packaging is a regularly overlooked, detrimental factor when consumer brands consider their environmental impact. Using recycled material is one thing, but that's not everything... For more: About GUSTATORY
We work with an abundance of brands and consumers ourselves, we are well aware of branding / packaging options. Despite this, we dispatch all our parcels within humble, minimally branded boxes. Why?

1  Environment: No matter whether a packaging design is black or has colour, inks' toxins have a negative impact on the environment. For us, unlike almost all other subscription services across every product type imaginable, we choose not to use overly-printed packaging - not even featuring a tiny logo - to eliminate our requirement for ink on postal boxes altogether. Each coffee subscription box we deliver is made from recycled cardboard, our tape from recycled kraft paper and our insert cards from recycled fibres. Whilst we do use ink on the latter, the usage of unbranded boxes for all our thousands of subscribers tremendously reduces our demand for ink. We also choose to publish all our monthly tasting notes and stories in our Journal & School online only.

2  Cost: As well as the environment, all overly-printed packaging also costs dramatically more to manufacture than it's unbranded equivalent. Each time any consumer receives overly branded packaging, their costs will be embedded into the price of the product being purchased. As such, consumers will either be paying more for the same item, or the item's actual cost to manufacture will be comparatively less - that is, it's true value and level of quality. For us, we price all our coffee subscriptions according to the true value of the actual coffee you're receiving, with no included cost of some packaging you'll no doubt dispose of 20 seconds later. If we had to embed an additional cost just for branded boxes, it would mean we'd need to charge this same amount more, or indeed, feature less true, lesser quality coffee each time. Well, neither of those options are ever going to happen in which we're *very* confident we're the best value, best quality coffee subscription service available. We'll let all the speciality coffees inside our humble packaging do the talking...

A sustainable future for coffee is uncertain. However, enjoy better

Issue: Speciality coffee is not commodity coffee, and buying coffee advertised as being 'certified sustainable' often doesn't guarantee the best for farmers and producers. In detail... For more: Specialty Coffee Association (SCA)
...Many certifications seek to ensure that producers receive the price they deserve and one that allows them to operate in a sustainable way. One example of that is Fairtrade certified coffee, which can be found in your local supermarket and guarantees a Fairtrade Minimum Price of $1.40 per pound for the producer. However, when compared with the Speciality Coffee Association's alternative recommended price threshold for profitability of $2.50 per pound, this indicates a gulf of $1.10 per pound and highlights the true perspective on sustainability - a point which Fairtrade seems to fall short of, as do many other sustainability programmes.

Speciality coffee is not commodity coffee in definitive ways, one of which is that many of the best independent speciality coffee roasters optionally pay upward of $4.00-5.00 per pound for their imports in the common belief that this is a much fairer price for the farmers, their communities and the coffee supply chain. Through direct-to-source relationships, suchlike provides their producers with added certainties, and only on such certainties can producers truly commit to sustainable practices, be it in the present, on investment for the future or in mitigation strategies against unknown events such as forest fires, drought and more. By our customers making conscious purchases from the best of independent coffee roasters through our coffee subscriptions, instead of less ethical and sustainable supermarket / multinational cafe alternatives, you too can help contribute towards the support and sustainability of the global coffee supply chain. Besides, the differences in quality of taste need not even be mentioned, all there to be enjoyed.
