World Coffee Day will take place on 1 October 2020, and St Remio is shining a spotlight on female coffee farmers to celebrate this day.

St Remio will donate 50 cents from the sale of each bag of coffee* of its compatible capsules and $1 from the sale of each bag** of coffee purchased in all Coles Supermarkets nationally and via the St Remio online store.

The Aussie coffee company aims to empower and support coffee growing communities, with this year’s focus being on female farming co-operative of Cocagi in West Rwanda.

In addition to the donations, St Remio is continuing their support by purchasing an additional two hectares of land, 8500 coffee plants, fertiliser and a mix of banana and sunflower plants that allow the co-operative to diversify their income as the coffee crop establishes itself.

“Your choice is a powerful one and simply by choosing St Remio you will have a positive impact directly on the lives of growers,” says St Remio Director and Founder, Julia Tank.

“Our whole philosophy at St Remio is to challenge people to think about coffee and drive the conversation away from commodity and back to community.”

This World Coffee Day, the company aims to raise additional funds for Cocagi and will be donating 100% of the money raised on the day directly to the co-operative.

Co-Founder of St Remio, Trent Knox adds that they not only source Rainforest Alliance coffee, but they go one step further and fund additional projects to ensure they are empowering growers.

“Great coffee doesn’t start at the roaster. Great coffee starts at origin,” says Mr Knox.

St Remio coffee features a range of compatible capsules from Nespresso, Lavazza A Modo Mio, Expressi and Caffitaly.

Coffee capsules are available from Coles Supermarkets, Officeworks, The Good Guys, Big W, and online on Amazon, iPantry and the St Remio website.

** $1 will be donated from each bag of St Remio whole beans or ground coffee sold via the St Remio online store.
