So how does it work?

There is no real rocket science behind this part, unlike the technologies that go into these individual processes and systems. 

You simply decide how involved you want to be in the system by finding a participation level that works for your business and we will organise the rest! Once you are registered with us on your chosen level we will supply the relevant services and products you have chosen.

So whether you are just looking to have your existing cups collected to help make a difference or you want to switch over to a full participation, where we supply both you cup and coffee requirements as well as removal of your waste coffee grounds , coffee bags, cardboard boxes, used paper cups and plastic bottles, we will help you through the full process to ensure your business realises the benefits of the system straight away.

We are currently only able to offer the collection level schemes in the south west of the UK currently, covering Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire & Hampshire. This is to ensure we are not causing further carbon emissions and increasing the footprint by travelling all over the country to recover the used products. Therefore if you are in the southwest and want to know what day each week your delivery/collection would be, please contact us and we will happily let you know which day and your drivers name and details for you.

What are the advantages of the Coffe-Eco System & how will my company benefit?

The advantages of this system are very straight forward, your company is currently spending money disposing of your coffee waste to landfill, maybe you have a contract with a large waste processing company who charge you to take your waste and burn it or landfill it or it is collected by the local authority, either way this is expensive and unnecessary. If you use The Coffe-Eco System, you can immediately save money by allowing us to collect your used coffee, bags, boxes, cups and bottles and take them away to be 100% recycled at the same time as we deliver your fresh new products. You will also find that our coffee and cup prices are incredibly competitive and may also save you money from your current supplier! Full members of the system also enjoy a 10% discount on all Coffe-Eco System products and services, so you can save even more!

You will also benefit from the huge amount of PR that we are continuously generating around this system.

Where does this system operate?

Currently only operating in the South West of the UK, however we are looking to expand on this in the very near future with regional distribution and collection points. To find out if we service your area currently, please feel free to contact the office and discuss it with the team. We will shortly be putting up a delivery/collection route map on this page for you to be able to clearly see which day your delivery/collection would be.

If you think you would be interested in hosting a distribution/collection facility, please do get in touch. We are running the model in the SW first with a view to running regional at a later date.

What is the Coffee like?

Changing your coffee is a big deal! We get that, we know all too well. This is why we would work with you to ensure your coffee quality is not compromised and that a blend will be found to ensure your customers are completely happy with the exchange (if they even notice!) We are completely confident that we can offer a second to non service when it comes to great coffee, after all this is our core business! We have access to every coffee in the world and have vast experience in creating blends for individual customers.

What are the Cups like?

We are using high quality cups for this system. We have developed a full printed cup in 8 &12oz sizes initially, if there is call for a 16oz offering, we will of course add this to the range. These cups are fully recyclable and will be turned into useful products after they have been used.

How much will this system cost me?

This scheme is set up to save you money. We hope that we will be able to offer you a comprehensive saving on your combined coffee supply and waste collection services. By participating in the Coffe-Eco System you will receive competitively priced Eco Roasted coffee and waste coffee collection. 

We are confident that through our clever partnering, we will SAVE you money within the first year through the purchasing of our cups and coffee alone! Added to the saving you will make by recycling your coffee waste and not land filling, the equation is heavily weighted in your favour!
