Capitalism gets a lot of stick. Most of it is totally justified. The fact is, unchecked capitalism incentivises turning all the planet’s resources into cash.
When it comes to our sustainability ethos, we’ve always been focused on facing the future - what do we want the world to look like in five, ten, twenty years?
For us, it means being carbon responsible, reducing our environmental impact using innovative solutions, and continuously investing in projects aligned with our commitment to being 100% carbon neutral.
We made the decision to celebrate Colombian coffee many months ago, but it seems all the more relevant now, given the political climate in Colombia. Our hearts go out to our friends and colleagues in Colombia who have been affected by the situation.
We’ve measured our carbon footprint for the last financial year and we want you to help us decide which projects to invest in! Cast your vote!
We only have a certain amount of time to achieve the climate goals set by the Paris agreement before the damage we've made to our planet is irreversible (only 9 years and counting 🤯...).We could get depressed and give up, or we could all step up our game and do our bit 💪

You may have tried the new additions to the bunch, our 1L ready to drink Latte and Mocha. Hacking the perfect coffee straight from the carton. So we hacked them even more, with some Latte & Mocha recipes to blow our tiny minds....(results may vary, as we were varying degrees of serious when making these)
We headed to Full Service LA to give away free cases of Oat M*lk as a reminder to register and to encourage the switch to a plant-based life.
Balancing out the impact we have on the planet is the least we can do. There’s still heaps more to do, and though we can’t kill all of our carbon emissions yet, we are working towards keeping more fossil fuels where they belong – buried in the ground.
Minor Figures will be donating all proceeds of Red Bay coffee sales on our webshop to the Disaster Relief efforts through California Fire Foundation. Please support local business and disaster relief efforts if you are able to.
Sup y'all! This month was our first month in the US doing two roasters, KLLR Coffee and Red Bay Coffee, with two delicious coffees available on our website. In case you're not great at counting, that's four coffees that you all have to choose from. Honestly, I don't think I'd be able to pick just one.
Deadstock Coffee is based in Portland, OR. Prior to our interview, a lot of protesting was consistently taking place especially in Portland. Ian and I started our chat speaking briefly about that and making sure him and the shop are safe and sound. Ian assured us that they were all good and had a really positive outlook regarding the state of the world as a whole.
