Igniting social change with every cup, amplifying the good across our community.


We believe that a simple cup of coffee can bring people together, foster camaraderie, grow communities, and empower. This - and our commitment to doing business in a socially responsible way - sits at the heart of everything we do.

Coffee Carts for Community

Our coffee carts are micro-enterprises that combine all the elements in the Bettr Barista ecosystem, and extend their impact beyond our Academy.

Each of our carts is operated by internationally certified alumni from Bettr Barista Coffee Academy, including enterprising graduates from our Holistic Training Programme, which empowers women and at-risk youth.

With the support of our partners, we're employing to empower through each coffee micro-enterprise, whilst nurturing social entrepreneurship.

We're making great tasting, specialty grade coffee more accessible to more people across diverse communities, and amplifying the good.

COFFEE THAT CARES

Coffee that cares across the supply chain

In addition to a sustainable green coffee supply, we continue to seek out and nurture direct trading relationships with independent coffee growers.

We strive to serve up top quality specialty grade coffees that also bring maximum commercial benefit to our partner farms and the extended communities that they support.

 
bettr-roasting

Specialty grade beans, roasted to the highest standards

We use the best equipment we can lay our hands on and roast-to-order at our dedicated facility.

This means that all of our coffees are served with an assurance of absolute freshness and uncompromised quality that you can taste in every cup.
