About The Eco Coffee Company
Coffee 2U Founded
Coffee 2U was founded with the aim of bringing quality coffee at affordable prices.
Eco Coffee Launched
The Eco Coffee brand was launched to bring a locally roasted, zero-waste, higher quality coffee with a much greater environmental impact than previous styles.
Change of Company Brand
Following the massive success of Eco Coffee, the company decided to change their name, with the focus moving over to the environmental impact of, not only coffee, but all hospitality products.
Green Cup Launched
Another innovative product, the plastic-free, biodegradable & recyclable Green Cup™, was launched to help solve the ever growing issue of plastic waste
Reusable is the main aim to combat plastic-waste and EcoWater™ was launched to push the focus in reusable drinking bottles. Made from 100% recycled aluminium.
A Slight Overhaul
They looked to improve the visual aspects of the company, from a whole new branding of Eco Coffee™ (see on the left) to new catalogues and a brand new website.
Eco Coffee is our own brand of high quality, ethically sourced and zero-waste coffee whereby we collect and recycle the used coffee grounds into Biofuel. This Biofuel is then used to roast the next batch of coffee, so creating a closed loop, sustainable approach to your coffee. The Biofuel can also be used to make Coffee Logs for use in domestic wood burners or fuel pellets for Biomass burners. Eco Coffee is locally roasted in Dorset. Being local means a low carbon footprint for collections and deliveries, and working closely with a local supplier, means we can be sure of the provenance and sustainability of our coffee. We are always happy to arrange a tour of the roastery, giving you the opportunity to try a selection of coffees and see the unique Eco Coffee roasting process first hand.
The Green Cup™
Our latest innovation and new in the UK, ‘The Green Cup’ is completely Plastic Free. No PET Plastic and no PLA. They are 100% compostable, biodegradable and fully recyclable. So they can go into your paper and cardboard recycling. Traditional compostable cups are made with a plant based PLA lining and although they are compostable, they need processing in a commercial facility, and there are very few of these in the UK so far. This means that the vast majority don’t actually get composted. And if our cups did end up in landfill, they would decompose within approximately 190 days, leaving no chemicals and no negative impact on the environment. Unlike PLA compostable cups which will take many years to breakdown.
We supply a wide selection of the world’s first plastic free, non GM, non-bleached teabags in the world. Including some of your favourite flavours, from English Breakfast to Decaf to Chamomile and many more.
We unveiled EcoWater in late 2021, a reusable, refillable & recyclable water bottle. Made from 100% recycled aluminium it has a fraction of the carbon footprint of new metal, plastic or glass bottles.
In the pursuit of reducing the consumption of single Use Plastics, we recommend Re-usable travel coffee cups. We have a few to choose from including the Circular Cup & the NOW cup. These are made from recycled plastic itself, and is a leak proof, quality cup which can be used over and over. Personalised branding is also available.
Point of Sale
We supply a wide range of Point of Sale items for you to tell the Eco Coffee story to your customers. Manufactured locally, we offer a selection of laser printed, reclaimed pallet wood A-frames, table talkers and various signage plus bespoke coffee stations and display units. As well as pallet wood, we provide a selection of printed literature and signage to help push and to explain the Eco Coffee message to your customers.
As well as coffee, we supply and service a range of Coffee Machines from a small compostable pod machine to a high capacity bean to cup and traditional espresso machines. We are always pleased to discuss the various machine options with you and recommend which would be best suited to your requirements.
Bottle Filling Stations
We have recently developed a chilled drinking water filling station with the aim of reducing single use plastic bottles and cups. This will be supported with a range of sustainable, reusable bottles along with our compostable or plastic free cups.
