Best Coffee's Partnership with 2020 UK Coffee Week
For one spectacular week every year, the coffee industry and coffee lovers come together to raise money for Project Waterfall by donating money from every coffee sold, running raffles and holding fun events.
Now in its tenth year – and taking place between 27 April - 3 May 2020 – 1000s of coffee shops, chains, brands and businesses register to take part in UK Coffee Week, all so that coffee lovers across the UK can raise money on their commute, at work, and with their daily cup of coffee.
Here at Best Coffee, we'll be supporting UK Coffee Week by helping the public find the best cafes involved in this year's fundraising. That means you'll be able to sip delicious coffee whilst making a difference to coffee-growing communities across the world.
Since 2011 UK Coffee Week has raised over £750,000 for Project Waterfall, helped fund 6 new initiatives in countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, and changed 28,000 lives.

Working to bring clean water to Coffee-Growing Communities
Today, 785 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water. The majority live in isolated, rural areas – the same areas growing our coffee.
It’s wrong that while we enjoy the purest filtered water in our coffee, the communities at the end of its supply chain face a water crisis.
This is why we support UK Coffee Week, a nationwide campaign that raises money for Project Waterfall – a charity working to end the water crisis in our lifetime.
What does Project Waterfall do?
Project Waterfall brings clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities across the world.
Regardless of where a community is, or how big it is, Project Waterfall’s aim is to implement tangible and sustainable solutions that create access to water and improve the quality of it.
100% of the funds raised during this year’s UK Coffee Week will go to Project Waterfall’s ongoing work in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia.
