Kontext Coffee Company

Kontext Coffee is a female-led specialty coffee roastery based near Monmouth, right on the boarder between Herefordshire in England and Monmouthshire in South Wales. All of its high-quality coffees are single-origin, so they’ve been sourced from individual countries and traced right down to the farm. The Living Wage company only works with partners that provide a full record of traceability and price transparency, to ensure a truly fair share of the price goes back to the coffee farmers.

Kontext Coffee operates as a circular business with a wide range of initiatives to reduce waste and support the maximum use of materials. Its packaging is omnidegradable®, meaning it will degrade completely when exposed to microbes in landfill, soil or water, and customers are encouraged to use empty bags for refills. Customers can also purchase reusable Airscape® coffee containers, and can pick from an extensive and colourful ‘mug library’ instead of using disposable cups.

For wholesale customers, Kontext Coffee offers reusable bulk buckets, as well as closed-loop bulk delivery and bucket exchange for customers in the area. The company’s coffee waste also goes to local farms to be used as a rich and effective fertiliser.
