Careers at Cafedirect

At Cafédirect, we do things differently. We're a pioneering social enterprise working with smallholder coffee, tea and hot chocolate growers to deliver award-winning hot drinks to the retail and foodservice industries.

On June 27th 2018 we became the UK's 1st B Corp Certified Coffee Company.

The secret is that small farmers have a big love for their farms ...and that's what makes our coffee, tea and hot chocolate taste so good.

In return we pay growers what they deserve, instead of paying middlemen. And by working together in true partnership we do more, investing over 50% of our profits in growers to create a more sustainable future.
