Raising money for the TIDE project.

Hello,
 
My name is Noni and I launched NONI'S Coffee Roasters in December 2020.
Our aim is to roast delicious coffee and to be an umbrella for research projects in environmental issues both in the UK and in coffee producing regions. As a swimmer I am passionate about water. During an origin trip to Ethiopia I was interested to find out more about the waste water at coffee processing stations and the detrimental impact this may have on the local eco-system.
 
To raise money for this cause I was going to swim my longest distance yet.
I was signed up to a 14k ultra marathon swim on the 18th June 2022 but due to illness I have had to cancel, it is extremely bad timing and I am so gutted but I am going to continue with the important work regardless and will be over the moon with peoples continued support as things start to manifest in the background. 
 
The proceeds will help me;
 
  • Learn more about the issues of contaminated waste water.
  • Test the water from washing stations I work with.
  • Connect with scientists to work on potential solutions..
  • Collaborate with local communities with hope to provide solutions.
 
 
About NONI'S
 
We’re on a mission to make your coffee taste better for everyone.
 
Not just through roasting (more on our awesome roastery in a minute), but by working closely with small-scale coffee farmers to ensure their farms can flourish into the future and only ever buying coffee from importers who protect and support farming communities.
 
Why?
 
Because we believe every person in the supply chain should taste the satisfaction that you taste in your cup of NONI's coffee.
 
How we do it
 
Our beans are chosen for two reasons.
One; because of the positive impact that they have for example carbon neutral farms or CIC projects which reinvest in farming communities to maximise the producers income an help them build systems to produce high quality coffee.
 
Or two; a result of a commitment to small scale farmers that we have begun a long term relationship with.
We then get the perfect roast by using our state of the art roaster and software to ensure a consistent and precise batch of coffee time after time. To develop, ensure quality and flavour profile we taste (cup) the coffee.
 
How we want to do it
 
We’re very proud of how far we’ve come, but we know we can do so much more.
 
By December 2022 we plan to be a registered community interest company (CIC) that will be supporting research into even more environmentally friendly for coffee production.

About our founder, Noni Morrison
 
It was a v60 filter coffee on a mountain side in the French Alps that changed Noni’s life. Not only did it taste exquisite, but the story behind it was beautiful too. It had been brewed by Ian and George, who were also just starting out on their coffee journey and were so excited to share the journey of the coffee, the producers and the story behind it.
 
Noni was hooked.
 
Eager to learn more about small-scale, sustainable and specialty coffee production, she continued her journey at a London roastery, working her way up the ranks she enjoyed all the stages of the industry and finally took herself on a trip to Peru to meet the coffee farmers for herself. Further trips took her to Ethiopia and Kenya; learning more about the coffees and the environmental issues and finding herself drawn to a business model that was focused on improving the environmental impact of coffee production: to reduce water use and pollution, and how to farm in a climate positive way. Meeting with farmers, their families and workers, Noni discovered the beautiful, complex – and deeply fragile – world of coffee production.
 
7 years later, she opened NONI's Coffee Roastery in Stroud.
 
Noni’s pledge
 
We’ll help small-scale farmers flourish by developing mutually beneficial partnerships.
 
We’ll invest profits into researching more sustainable methods for coffee production and aim to become a community interest company (CIC) during the year 2022.
 
Your coffee will taste great to everyone.
