The UK and Ireland’s foremost sustainable coffee roaster, Matthew Algie, has unveiled a new range of freshly roasted coffees, launched to support the restoration of Scotland’s Rainforest.
The Peak & Wild collection of three distinctive coffees launches at the end of February and becomes the roaster’s first range of climate positive coffees, meaning carbon emissions have been offset twice to have a positive, not a neutral, impact on the planet.
The concept has been developed in support of Matthew Algie’s partnership with The John Muir Trust – a conservation charity dedicated to the protection of wild places.
Through the collaboration Matthew Algie is expected to help preserve and restore 1000 hectares of Scotland’s rainforest over the next three years. Located across a few isolated pockets, the rainforest is one of Europe’s most precious habitats which provides a nature-based solution for capturing carbon.
Available to coffee shops and hospitality operators from 28th February, Peak & Wild will also help as many as 2,500 young people across the UK achieve their John Muir Award.
It is the latest venture from the business which has a long history of championing sustainability. In addition to being the first roaster to introduce Fairtrade espresso to the UK 25 years ago, Matthew Algie was the first in the world to offer triple certified coffee and was the first roaster globally to achieve Carbon Neutral International Standard.
