RESTORING SCOTLAND’S RAINFOREST

Scotland’s rainforest is one of Europe’s most precious habitats. It is as important as tropical rainforest, but far rarer.
Few people know it exists and fewer still know how globally significant it is. It exists in just a few isolated pockets, mostly on Scotland’s West Coast.
But our amazing rainforest is at risk of disappearing altogether. As little as 30,000 hectares remain – a mere 2% of Scotland’s woodland cover.
Working with The John Muir Trust*, we will help restore over 1000 hectares of Scottish rainforest over the next three years.
The Trust is a conservation charity dedicated to the experience, protection and repair of wild places. They care for around 1,170 hectares of rainforest across four of their properties at Skye, Knoydart, Quinag and the Ben Nevis range.
They work to restore natural processes to establish self-seeding, mature trees and thriving ecosystems.
About the John Muir Trust
John Muir (1838-1914) was the Scot’s born founder of the modern conservation movement.
Muir was passionate about wild places and campaigned to protect them, not just for their own sake, but for the wellbeing of people and wildlife too.
The John Muir Trust works with communities across the UK to inspire greater involvement in wild nature.
The Trust campaigns to protect wild places, speak up for their benefits and they repair & rewild land within their care for the common good.

People have achieved their John Muir Award since its launch in 1997

WE SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF CONSERVATION

Over the next three years we will help 2,500 young people across the UK & Ireland to achieve the John Muir Award.
To achieve one of the three available awards, young people in the UK are asked to spend between 25 and 125 hours on 4 goals: Discover, Explore, Conserve, Share.
Awards can be taken as individuals, families, schools and community groups. Our customers can champion the John Muir Award in their local area.

IT DOESN’T STOP THERE. PEAK & WILD COFFEE IS ALSO…

CLIMATE
POSITIVE

That means we double our carbon offsetting, to have a positive – not neutral – impact, on the planet. All the while striving to minimise the emissions in the first place.

RAINFOREST ALLIANCE

We underpin every coffee with Rainforest Alliance certification. This helps secure a better future for people and the planet.

OUR COFFEE

PEAK & WILD FRESHLY ROASTED PROMISE

You’ll receive your coffee beans within 2 weeks of roasting.
You’ll find our ‘roasted on’ date on every pack.

Our team researched the science of freshness and presented our findings to the Speciality Coffee Association of America (SCAA).

In summary, fresh coffee has more body, flavour and aroma; it is rich and bright. However, coffee begins to lose its freshness long before it is officially stale.
