The Kua team visits Uganda every year to work with our farmer partners. We pay the fairest prices on the mountain for the juiciest cherries. All profits are reinvested in community and environmental projects.
Yes and no. The nature of our closed-loop service limits only service to only workplaces in Sydney. But! If you live outside NSW and want to try our coffee you can order here.

Yes Kua is a registered charity with ACNC. This means we are subject to the same scrutiny and standards as any charity in Australia.
However, we do run a little differently to the traditional charity model. Instead of taking donations, we sell coffee, and commit 100% of the profits from this coffee go to environmental initiatives in Uganda, where our coffee is grown. It’s a social enterprise model: The more coffee people drink, the more good we can do.

Kua means ‘to grow’ in Swahili.
In East Africa (where our coffee comes from), Swahili is a bridge language. A connecting dialect that enables communities to work together. For us, that’s a powerful metaphor.
