LABORATORIO DEL CAFFÈ
Laboratorio del Caffè is an innovative project of fair sustainable development. We produce and distribute Coffee/Tea Machines and Coffee/Tea Capsules, 100% recyclable. Coffee and Tea come from Altromercato certified fair trade producers and the coffee/tea makers are 100% made in Italy
All partners are not for profit organizations, and the employees belong to weak categories. The coffee waste collected is also used to produce clean energy. Scaling would mean expand the business and increase exponentially the social impact in different countries, benefiting thousands of people and the environment
What is the social impact of your business?
We distribute fair trade organic coffee, contributing to create a more sustainable economy respectful of human rights, to protect the environment, and consumer’s health. The beneficiaries are thousands of clients who drink fair and organic tea and coffee, such as the thousands of farmers in developing countries and the disadvantaged workers in Italy.
We promote a model of zero waste production cycle, and we invest all profits in other social activities since we are 100% not for profit organizations.
What do you want to achieve by being part of Impact Hub Scaling?
We strongly believe that the key to succeed and make a difference is cooperation. Being part of the program will give us the chance to get in touch with other organizations and professionals that could contaminate and improve our vision and our business models. Basically we already feel to be part of a multicultural successful team.
Please give us one interesting fact about you.
We love our country because in Italy coffee is considered a “holy” product and “coffee time” is a fundamental aspect of Italian way of life. So, finally there is a typical Italian habit that can contribute to better the world 🙂
