July 4th Independence 🎈

Chantel Daniel

Upon reading, you will learn that the 4th July has been celebrated since 1776, marking American independence from the British empire. Although July 4th is not celebrated in the UK, our USA audience means a lot to us, which has encouraged me to look into this monumental date further and what it means to our brothers and sisters in the US. It boggles me to think that Britain, an area of land that small could dominate such an expanse of land that is America; but then I’m reminded of the notion that in small, you often find mighty, which we...

The Importance of Fathers Day ❤️

Chantel Daniel

On this Father’s Day, we at The Good Coffee Project would love to wish all the wonderful fathers out there a special day…  When we think about our fathers, having them play a role in our lives will have a significant impact on us. Not everyone has a father to celebrate with on Father’s Day, which means this day can be somewhat painful for those people. Personally, I have experienced fatherless-ness first hand as a result of my father leaving my mother with five children, when I was very young.  The role of a father is not as clear as...

Our First Virtual Fundraiser! 🥳✊🏽🎉

Chantel Daniel

Image: ‘Zuri, the Coffee Farmer’ created by Jessica James ™️  It is now coming up to our first year and there is much reflection to be made. Since incorporating in July 2020, we have encountered many obstacles. These obstacles have included purposeful sabotage of our brand and packaging, lies against me and our company, financial scamming and shaming, blaming and attacking of my character and our small and newly established business. I have chosen not to address such things publicly in order to remain focused on my growth. It’s all been a huge distraction and possibly a silent consensus to put...

What would an Equitable Coffee Industry look like? 👀

Chantel Daniel

A fair and equitable world would be considered a utopia for the poorest people in the world, many of them who farm coffee. Those who benefit directly from the inequality frame the belief that such an ideal is impossible or not worth the effort to obtain. Let’s think of a utopian society where everyone in the market is treated with equal respect as equitable partners, determining value and benefit in accordance with their level of input. An equitable coffee industry where importance is placed on reinvesting value back into each component of the supply chain and the communities where coffee is grown, enabling the farmer to...

Hello, supporters and friends, clients and partners!

Chantel Daniel

After great preparation, The Good Coffee Project enjoyed its much-anticipated launch on the first of October. The website is up and running (https://thegoodcoffeeproject.co.uk/), and operation is underway. Though it’s just the beginning, we’ve already had a colourful journey – not unlike the coffee plant itself. Coffee is thought to have originated in the heart of Africa, in equatorial forests of lands now part of Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya. In the centuries since its discovery, the revered beverage has experienced prominent roles in many cultures. Plantations sprang up all over the globe, with each region’s climate and elevation lending unique qualities...
