T

he people of Britain are

partial to a good cup

of tea. Apparently, as a

nation, we drink around

165 million cups of tea

a day (according to the UK Tea and

Infusions Association). That's more than

twice the estimated number of cups of

coffee we swallow as a nation. Statistics

from 2013 indicated we drank 70 million

cups in a year (source: Gimoka Coffee

UK), though judging by the burgeoning

numbers of coffee shops, carts and other

outlets (one inventive chappie is selling

from a converted old, red telephone box),

we're drinking more of it than ever. What

with Coca Cola buying up the UK's Costa

Coffee business in 2018 stating it needed

to get a toe-hold in a growing market while

also diversifying away from soda drinks as

they lose popularity with shoppers.

Here are some recent movers and

shakers in the UK's hot drinks arena.

Ease in a pod

It's estimated that a third of people in the

UK own a coffee pod machine, which

shows the need for an environmentallyfriendly solution to the pods which have

to date been quite tricky to recycle. Both

the metal encapsulation and the coffee

grounds inside can be reused, if they can

be saved from being put in the bin.

Since March 2018, Waitrose has

stocked The Eden Project's home

compostable coffee pods, and is now the

first major retailer to sell own-label home

compostable coffee pods when it started

FANCY A BREW?

Maybe with a splash of milk, let's catch up on news about

tea, coffee (including recyclable coffee pods and plastic-free

reusable cups) and even tea-infused spirits over a cuppa!

to offer them in December last year.

This is part of the supermarket fulfilling

its commitment to own-label packaging

being widely recyclable, reusable or

home compostable by 2025. The four

new Waitrose 1 coffee capsules are

compatible with Nespresso machines and

are all are Fairtrade certified. They are sold

in cardboard packaging, which is widely

recyclable. The coffee varieties will be from

Colombia, Brazil, Peru (decaffeinated)

with an Italian-style espresso.

Polly Astbury, coffee buyer at Waitrose,

comments on the progress, saying, "Our

customers love coffee and worry about

the waste pods can create. By being the

first supermarket to launch its own home

compostable coffee pods we're really

happy to be able to offer a solution. We're

committed to finding environmentallyfriendly packaging alternatives

and are

excited by this next step."

Black coffee

Connecting with fellow black farmers

around the world, The Black Farmer has

launched a range of Eco Roast coffees

Eco Roast technology is a zero-waste

solution that harnesses the energy

contained in spent coffee grounds and

uses it to roast fresh batches of coffee.

The launch range of four coffee selection

boxes provide 'A Taste of the Caribbean'

and 'A Taste of Africa' both in roasted

and ground, and whole bean versions.

The selections feature coffee from top

producing nations in the Caribbean and

Africa - Costa Rica, Dominican Republic,

Cuba; and Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda.

Each 240g box contains six x 40g sealed

sachets, two for each variant. RRP:

£4.79.

Then there are his 'With a Twist'

tea products. These take well-loved

tea variants and add something extra.
