Our Coffee is the best of its kind. It is grown in the southern Ethiopian highlands where the forests are thick and coffee grows wild. This is the area from where coffee originates and from where we get our coffee beans – the motherland of coffee.

IMPACT RºASTERS has its name from the thumbprint as being unique, traceable and leaving a print. We can trace our coffee back to the trees they have grown (as one one of the very few coffee importers in Denmark) which gives our coffee its unique identity. We invest half of our profit in educational and job creating projects through which your purchase leaves a positive lasting print in a child in Ethiopia.

Our coffee beans are the natural and original Ethiopian Arabica varieties. It grows in fertile soil, is constantly exposed to a cool breeze due to the great height of the south region area and the small beans are hidden from the rain and shaded from the sun. In other words this is the perfect climate for growing coffee and all contributing factors that each brings forth our coffees quality and eminent taste. The coffee beans are brought down from the mountains, washed and dried before being shipped to Denmark where we roast it in three different varieties: Light, Medium and Dark roast.

Our Light Roast coffee has a sweet and floral tast with hints of blueberry and citrus which is unique from that area. It is only the best coffee beans in which one desires to keep the beans acidic taste. It is only the rarest of coffees that are roasted lightly but our coffee is just that – rare and slightly acidic. We drink this in a French Press but no matter your preferred brewing method, it is as close to the original Ethiopian coffee experience you can get and perfect for all coffee nerds.

Our Medium Roast has a sweet and floral taste. It still has hints of blueberry but is slightly more bitter, rounded and dark in its taste than the Light Roast. If you usually drink medium roast coffee you’ll experience ours as much more complex and almost floating. This coffee is suited for pour-over and filter coffee.

Our Dark Roast has a sweet and floral tast with hints of blueberry and chocolate. Coffee beans that are dark roasted has usually lost its acidic taste and become more bitter. However, the dark roast gives the coffee a more round and grand body. If you prefer a coffee with great character, sweet nuances and dark tast this is your one. We recommend this one for Espresso but is also suited for pour-over and French Press.

Our trade model is designed to empower and bring change to the local communities in which our coffee is grown. We reinvest half of our profit in projects related to children and youth. The projects are developed by the local community this ensures sustainability and local owner ship. We call this Impact Trade!

Our trade model make use of globalisation without exploiting global inequalities and trade relations. We do not believe that one model fits all coffee producing countries and methods which is why we believe that Fair Trade has outlived its original purpose. By cutting out middle-men , work to empower whole societies and not just coffee farmers and owners of coffee washing stations. Due to the fact that our point of departure is Ethiopia and not Denmark we can offer gourmet coffee at competitive prices while investing in projects in Ethiopia.

We build the future - become part of it!

By drinking our coffee you leave a positive footprint on the world. Each cup secures school uniforms, quality education and job creating projects in Ethiopia. At IMPACT RºASTERS it is not only something we say – we do it!

Our members’ purchase has secured 1000 school children access to clean water. We have trained around 50 young men and women in sowing and handicraft and by creating a concrete production facility to renew and sanitise schools and communities we have secured them jobs. This is without the many school uniforms, sports clothes, note books etc that we have supplied youth with.

At IMPACT RºASTERS we invest only in educational and job creating projects that has a solid local ownership and support. It is, thus, crucial to us that the projects are thought up by and executed in close relationship with the local people in the area from which we get our coffee.

It started with school uniforms

As 15-year-old Daniel Hallala MPACT RºASTERS’ founder had to leave school because his parents no longer could afford buying him a school uniform. Although this was not the first time he experienced the hardships that comes from poverty he clearly to this day remembers the feeling of shame and degredation of self-esteem and worth among friends and neighbours and the frustration of missing a whole year of school. The school uniform is a requirement and grant access to education in Ethiopia. This is why MPACT RºASTERS together with locals works to secure all children school uniforms in south Ethiopia. IMPACT RºASTERS furthermore wish to reestablish the self-esteem and worth of children by giving them access to sport activities and through engagement in positive communities.

Lively and inclusive societies 

At IMPACT RºASTERS we believe in obligative communities as a lever out of poverty. This is the reason why we reinvest half of our profit back into the societies and not just favour the coffee farmers. We experience therefor a great support and ownership in the local communities in which we harvest our coffee and reinvest our profits. Because of this close collaboration we were able to build a water tap station for the school children in Jano Mile – supplying 1000 children water.

You can read more about that project and all other projects on our organisational website Coffeeprint4change

Help us build a school in Chano Mile

In 2017 IMPACT RºASTERS will focus and intensify our development work in the south of Ethiopia. We have decided together with the citizens in the city where it all began, Chano Mile, to build a new school.

As the pictures show the current school in Chano Mile is in no way suitable to ensure quality education as it has not been renovated or maintained since its construction.

We will therefor launch a new membership of Coffeeprint4change to all of our returning customers which will provide you with a small membership discount and news updates of the progress of building a new school.

This way you will become part of the campaign and of the Tribe.
