Sourcing & Sustainability
Our entire business is driven by a highly ethical and thoughtful approach to sourcing coffee. We also take an open and honest approach to sustainability, implementing practical solutions, that help move us along on our goal to being a carbon neutral roastery.
Our journey so far...
We have put in place a number of initiatives towards improving our sustainability credentials to date, but we also open about the ongoing cycle of learning we face to achieve our goal of becoming a fully sustainable coffee roastery.
From coffee sourcing to recyclable packaging, we are committed to making the continued improvements to reduce our carbon footprint and make a positive impact at origin.

Sustainable Coffee Sourcing
We only work with a select group of coffee suppliers who not only source and supply exceptional coffee but are also highly regarded as attaining the very highest standards when it comes to Ethics and Fair Trade.
Our suppliers not only source and supply coffee but also develop grassroots relationships with coffee farmers, washing stations, and processing mills at origin.

Recyclable Coffee Packaging
As part of our ongoing sustainability initiatives, we are delighted to announce that recycling your empty Machina Coffee bags just got a whole lot easier
Depending on where you live our bags can now be recycled at supermarkets, or in some cases, kerbside.

Sourcing Direct from Origin
As of September 2022, we now plan to source the majority of the coffees we roast at Machina, direct from origin.
Making this decision has been the result of a lot of careful planning and consideration, which culminated in our first ever sourcing trip to Brazil in July. This blog is the first in a series of blogs on this subject, which looks at the reasons that drove this decision.
