Galana Abaya Tore
We have this delicious coffee available to celebrate UK Coffee Week. You can place an order now but we will not despatch your coffee until the week of the 29th April, to coincide with UK Coffee Week.
We’ll be donating £1 from every bag of Galana Abaya Tore sold to Project Waterfall, and anyone who buys a bag will be entered into our prize draw, with the chance to win a range of Carvetii goodies.
UK Coffee Week is an opportunity for our industry to give something back to the communities who live in and around coffee growing regions. As well as a celebration of the exciting and diverse coffee scene which now exists in the UK, the focus for the week will be on raising money for Project Waterfall.
Project Waterfall is an initiative developed by the Allegra Foundation to bring clean water to the communities which grow our coffee.
Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised over £1 Million and delivered clean drinking water to over 34,000 people in Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Vietnam and Nicaragua.
UK Coffee Week 2019 will be raising funds for the ongoing project in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is considered the biological and cultural home of coffee, and 38% of the people living in Jabi Tehnan rely on coffee for their livelihood.
Ethiopia is also one of the countries that struggles most with the water crisis. 75% of the population lack access to clean water and 95% lack access to sanitation.
This project, in partnership with WaterAid, will bring clean drinking water and sanitation to 7,000 people over the next 4 years.
