At Kua, we answer two important questions ...

Your Impact

Where does your coffee come from?

Small-holder farming families, Uganda … 

Kua coffee is sourced direct from the steep slopes of Mount Elgon. We buy in a way that improves farmer wellbeing; meaning UTZ certification, hungry-season bonuses and sustainable farming workshops. 

Like Richard. 

One of our Zukuka Bora farmers, standing atop his five acre plot. With eight children to school, a sustained source of income is pretty important. But, recent landslides, erratic weather patterns and unpredictable harvests make this near impossible… 

We fight for climate justice. 

That’s why, in 2020, all Kua profits will be reinvested in the Trees for Global Benefit program. We buy carbon credits from our coffee farmers; who plant native trees for an alternative stream of income, land stabilisation and ecosystem regeneration. It’s our commitment to world-positivity. 

Where does your coffee end up?

Community gardens across Sydney … 

Coffee is a natural fertiliser, exfoliant and mushroom substrate … why would used grounds end up in landfill? We work with local reuse organisations to give your spent coffee grounds a second life.

A local social enterprise using waste coffee grounds to improve soil structure and add nitrogen to compost. This is Bruce - one of the horticulturalists taking our coffee and turning it into native plants and bush foods. 

Welcome to the circular economy. 

We’re moving towards a future of reuse: a future where we design out waste. Kua’s partners with manufacturers to explore new and productive uses for coffee grounds. Request a delivery of used coffee below.

saved from landfill. Every kilogram of used coffee grounds collected eliminates 0.6 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions.
