Friska | Feel Good Food
We have always believed that business can and should be a force for good. We are committed to doing things in a responsible way and having a positive impact on the world around us.
We work with our friends at Clifton Coffee to source some of the best single-origin coffee around. Clifton Coffee is a Bristol-based speciality coffee roaster and equipment supplier, made up of SCAE barista trainers, coffee geeks, and all-round good guys. They're at the forefront of the speciality coffee scene; supplying many of the leading retailers from independent specialty coffee shops to michelin starred restaurants and 5-star hotels right across the UK. They work closely with co-operatives, private exporters, NGO's and Indigenous Rights Groups to ensure that the coffees they sell are ethical, free from exploitation, and truly traceable.
Our beans are grown and harvested at Fazenda Pinhal in Brazil (Fazenda is Brazilian for farm) by Pedro. Our coffee is direct-trade which means that roasters like Clifton Coffee buy directly from farmers like Pedro, cutting out the middleman meaning a better-than-fairtrade price. Fazenda Pinhal belongs to the Gabarra Teixeria Family who began growing their coffee on the farm in 1994. Pedro (@pedrogabarra) is a sixth-generation coffee farmer from Minas Gerais in Brazil. His farm (@fazpinhal) was recently awarded the Fazenda Sustentavel Prize for sustainability - this makes his farm the most sustainable in Brazil.
Producer: Pedro Teixera
Farm: Fazenda Pinhal
Flavour notes: Dark Chocolate and Roasted Almonds
Charity Work, recycling and other good stuff
