“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do” ― Pelé
We care passionately about the beans we select. All our coffee beans are fully traceable back to their origin and are grown with care for the environment. We pay more for our coffee ensuring the farmer has been paid substantially more to harvest his beans in a way that delivers unique flavours with great quality.
We work with merchants who share our ethos for quality and who demonstrate they are actively involved in projects at origin, safeguarding the future of speciality coffee beans.
We are also committed to supporting sustainability here in the Burren. Anam Coffee is a member of the Burren Ecotourism Network and we are proud to be located within the Burren & Cliff of Moher GEOPARK. We have signed up to the Geopark Code of Practice for sustainable tourism. We have developed an Environment Policy and an Environmental Action Plan to ensure we meet our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. We are also committed to monitoring and measuring our environmental impact over time.
Our Environmental Policy
Anam Coffee is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its operations through the adoption of sustainable practices and the continual improvement in our environmental performance.
We aim to develop a sustainable business that is financially viable, environmentally sustainable, promotes the equitable treatment of coffee farmers and makes a positive social contribution to the Burren community.
In particular, we will achieve this though the following practices:
Anam Coffee is a proud member of B.E.N. – a network of tourism businesses with the objective of establishing the Burren as a premier internationally recognised sustainable tourism region ensuring the future economic and social growth and sustainable development of its communities, environment and heritage.
It seeks to support continued training, mentoring and accreditation in sustainable tourism for its members and for businesses interested in joining the Network. The Network aims to be a recognisable network of enterprises in the Burren, who have achieved independent accreditation, demonstrate ecotourism ‘best practice’, positively discriminate in each other’s favour, provide ‘one voice’ representation on issues impacting the Burren (where appropriate), and inspire conservation activism.
The Burren Ecotourism Network and the management organisation of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark have enjoyed a special relationship since 2008. The two organisations work in partnership, having agreed in late 2012 to pool their resources in pursuit of their common objective. Both organisations are committed to the promotion of responsible tourism that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.
They work together to promote ‘The Burren & Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark’ as a leading sustainable visitor destination, celebrated for high standards in visitor experience, conservation and learning.
