Barangaroo’s sustainability commitment may be well known, but did you know that Barangaroo’s cafes also follow a sustainable approach when it comes to sourcing coffee? These cafes make a difference not only here at home but in communities where they source their coffee beans. Meet-up with friends at one of these cafes and don't forget to bring your keep cup.

Campos Coffee

For Inner west favourite Campos Coffee, investing in the communities they operate in is an integral part of their business. They support social projects that improve the education and living standards of the communities they work with. They provide funding support for various school projects in Africa including the Ethiopian Suke Quto Project, located in one of the largest coffee producing regions in Ethiopia.

Dukes Coffee

Australian speciality roasting company Dukes Coffee uses ethically traded and sourced coffee from individual farms or small cooperatives. Each lot of coffee they buy is traceable down to the farm level, and where possible they purchase organically grown coffee. Dukes Coffee also helps fund much needed reforestation in Ethiopia. With any purchase through their online store, you can add a donation to plant trees through their partnership with WeForest.

The Precinct by Toby’s Estate

Sydney staple Toby’s Estate follows the S.E.E. (Social, Ethical, Environmental) philosophy and strive to apply this to all practices. They have their own coffee farm in Panama called Finca Santa Teresa, including a school for the local children. The farm is focused on pioneering new sustainable growing and processing techniques and allows them to nurture flavours.

Bourke Street Bakery

Sydney’s iconic bakery is also a pioneer when it comes to sustainability. They were the first business in Australia to own a Closed Loop environment waste system which means all of their organic waste is processed and converted into compost within twenty-four hours. Bourke Street Bakery serves Single O coffee, another Surry Hills original that sources ethically and environmentally sound beans, products and produce.

Micro by Coffee Alchemy

As one of the leaders in the specialty coffee scene, Coffee Alchemy sources their beans from small individual farms or co-operatives, known as micro-lots. At Micro, it’s all about being able to trace every batch of bean back to the micro-lot it was grown on. Their meticulous selection and respect for the bean has won them various accolades throughout the years.

Did you know?

Unlike other precincts, Barangaroo recycles takeaway coffee cups and other dry waste into fuel for cement manufacturing. The waste is sent to a local plant for baling, which is shipped to a cement plant to be used as an alternative fuel to petroleum. Even the carbon ash collected from the combustion process is collected and added to the cement mix.
