Coffee is important in church, not only for us to enjoy whilst we connect and chat at a church gathering, but also when we invite friends. It’s also important we are buying products that we know are fair throughout the supply chain and support farmers in developing nations. We can help by offering advice for the right solution to make coffee, as well as providing excellent coffee direct from the farm backed with stories of real people and real projects that you will become part of.
Ethical Addictions is a company founded on Christian principles in 2006, and it’s been an adventure ever since. At EA we believe in ‘business as mission’ – a powerful tool for good when done well, honouring relationships and acting justly.
Traditionally the way coffee growers have been treated in the past is diabolical. Whilst the FairTrade organisation has made some progress we wanted to go further and also discovered small farm holdings who could not afford to join the scheme, and we felt called to work with them.
We sell our coffee to individuals, businesses and churches across the UK.
We have flexible solutions for all sizes of church – from a few in a small group to over 1000 meeting on a Sunday morning and everything in between.
We have also helped set-up a number of coffee shops with churches and community groups so we have a raft of experience to share, and will gladly provide advice on everything we know from concept to equipment, as well as layout and products and more.
Athos & Isaltino Caixeta, Gerezim Farm, Minas Gerais, Brazil
We work with lots of different farmers, smallholders and traders in coffee in different countries and relationship is everything to us. These guys are a wonderful family in central Brazil where Isatino is not only the coffee farmer but also a local church pastor. We are so thankful for our friendship with them and their story of faith is an incredible one.
This bench, their ‘prayer bench’ has been sat on generation after generation as they have prayed for their crops, and given thanks for their harvest. Several times I have had the privilege to sit with them and pray with them for the farm and their family.
