Our Sustainability & Impact
At Balance, we pride ourselves on being one of the best sustainable coffee suppliers.
Our goal is to ensure we offset our environmental impact by planting trees, supporting charities and creating exciting new sustainable coffee initatives.
Message from Founder
Hey, I’m James, the founder of Balance Coffee. I believe that drinking ethical and sustainable coffee is no longer a choice.
As the owner of a small start up coffee business, my goal is to ensure we have a positive impact on everyone working within the entire coffee chain.
It's vital that we offset the carbon emissions produced to protect the future of our planet.
I believe in taking action, so we set up a few simple initiatives that ensures every cup of Balance Coffee positively contributes to people and our planet.
Every time you buy one of our coffees, you help us to:
Partnered with ecologi
We Plant Trees
The restoration of trees is one of the most effective strategies for climate change mitigation.
Ecologi aim to plant one billion trees to help reduce the harmful effects of CO2 and we're on a mission to help them get there.
So far, we have helped them to plant over 700+ trees which is a CO2 reduction of 36+ Tonnes.
By choosing our coffee, you’re helping us to offset our carbon footprint.

Partnered with Project Waterfall
We Donate 1% Of Sales To Charity
Every time you buy a bag of Balance Coffee, we donate 1% of the sales to Project Waterfall.
A coffee charity, bringing clean drinking water, sanitation and education to coffee growing communities.
With your support, we’re hoping to make a real impact in coffee farming communities.
Speciality grade coffee
Ethical Sourcing Policies
All of our coffee beans are sourced from cooperatives and direct trade relationships located all over the world.
We purchase speciality grade coffee which accounts for just 5% of the total coffee consumed globally.
We pay a higher price for this grade of coffee and not just because it tastes delicious – it also helps coffee farmers at origin, as it is sold at a fairer price than commodity coffee.
It’s not a complete solution by any means, but we’re able to genuinely improve farmers’ livelihoods, whilst also helping to create a sustainable supply of coffee for the future.
We Recycle & Re-Use
We pride ourselves on being one of the best sustainable coffee suppliers in the UK.
At the. beginning of 2021 we switched to 100% recyclable packaging to continue of efforts in operating more sustainable.
In the coffee roastery, water usage has been reduced by 33% and we recycle everything possible, including our recyclable content boxes, packaging material and paper.
Finally, we have also chosen to use the most sustainable delivery options available to us.
Royal Mail is one delivery option, as they already pass your area every day.
If you choose the DPD option to deliver your coffee, the Co2 emissions of the delivery will have been offset by DPD.
