I know that we like to remind you to keep buying Fair Instant as it supports the work of Save the Children. Our view is that if you like coffee then you might as well buy coffee that comes with a heart and a conscious. And in our view the best you can buy is Fair Instant.
It’s been a while since we reported back to you on the sterling work carried out on our behalf by Save the Children.
We like to remind you every so often that buying Fair Instant doesn’t just deliver you a fine cup of instant coffee but that it also directly helps the coffee growing communities in Colombia, from where we buy much of our coffee beans.
For every jar you buy we donate 10p to Save the Children. It might not sound a lot but it can quickly add up. So far together we’ve raised over £550,000 and that’s not bad by anybody’s standards.
Thought coffee could only be used in baking? Well, think again. Coffee (like chocolate) can also be used to great effect as an ingredient and flavour in savoury dishes too. This recipe was developed by Tim Anderson (of Masterchef fame no less) and it gives steak with a creamy mushroom sauce an unusual twist by using coffee and chocolate flavours. It may sound funny, but we reckon it’s worth giving it a go (and will make a nice change from fish fingers again).
Everybody has their own way of doing things, I know I do! And that goes for when and how I enjoy my coffee. Time of day, where I am, all go to influence what I need to pick me up.
More facts about coffee. We like to keep you on your toes so here is a little more info about our favourite subject.
Do you know how your coffee got into your cup? Alright, we can probably guess how you made it. But where did it come from?
Make someone a cup of coffee. Go on, you’re sticking the kettle on anyway, you might as well ask if anyone else wants one. And it’s better for the environment if you save electricity by making one big round rather than lots of separate cups. Win, win!
When it comes to health matters, coffee has often been given a bit of a bad rap in the past. Coffee is seen as the hardcore, rocket fuel of caffeine addicts in comparison to its more genteel, leisurely even healthful counterpart tea. It’s the ‘treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em’ keen tough guy of caffeinated drinks as opposed to the mild-mannered, easy-going tea boy.
As you know, for every jar of Fair Instant sold, we donate 10p to the charity Save the Children. It may sound like a drop in the ocean but all those pennies add up and it’s just one simple way to give something back, while enjoying your daily mug of coffee. So here’s another example of how, with your help, Save the Children has made a difference.
You probably know that Save the Children is a charity that does great work, helping less fortunate children in impoverished or war-torn areas around the world. You should also know that for every jar of Fair Instant sold, 10p is donated to Save the Children.
