BUY TWIN CAFE COFFEE ONLINE
AT Twin Cafe WE DO COFFEE DIFFERENTLY
We buy all our coffee from the UCA MIraflor co-op just outside Sheffield’s twin city of Esteli, via the ethical company Etico, as we are too small to arrange importing and transporting the coffee without help. Etico pay our farmers a fair price – in spring 2020 it was 23% above the fair trade minimum for organic coffee – so the Co-op, the farmers and their families can prosper. We use our profits to buy more coffee and to support projects in our twinned cities, sometimes we have been able to donate cash, but we usually provide support by donating or supplying coffee at cost price to community groups or social enterprises.
But this isn’t just fairly traded coffee, this is single origin, shade grown at altitude on a nature reserve coffee where the farmers take pride in the sustainability of the estate using practices that respect their environment.
Twin Café is a company that coffee lovers and growers can unite around. Each cup of Twin Café coffee is helping to strengthen a twinning relationship, encouraging cooperation and exchange between two cities and their communities.
UCA Miraflor are a farmer’s co-operative who grow coffee and other crops in the beautiful natural reserve of Miraflor – Moropotente. Their sustainable agriculture includes certified coffee production (Fair Trade and organic) eco-tourism and the use of alternative technologies.
