For the discerning coffee aficionado in your life, it doesn’t get better than waking up to fresh speciality coffee delivered to their door.
Well, yes, if it’s coffee from Redemption Roasters.
Redemption Roasters is a prison based roastery. It exists to provide alternative employment routes for people who are too frequently overlooked for work. Having a job is the single biggest factor that can prevent someone from re-offending, but prejudice, stigma and fear make it hard for prison-leavers to find work.
Their coffee is sourced from all over the world, including the Galapagos, with a preference for smallholder farmers. Redemption Roasters prioritise empowering people who are otherwise disadvantaged or disenfranchised through their supply chain. They do this by sourcing their coffee according to three main principles: rehabilitation, decolonisation and gender equality. Everyone in the supply chain is paid a living wage.
