We Only Sell Coffee That's Ethically Produced and Traceable
That's what makes us Maverick.
We feel passionately about great tasting coffee, but isn't coffee even more enjoyable knowing everything is traceable, fairly traded and the packaging fully recyclable? We think so.
We're proud to say that we only sell coffee that is ethical, responsibly sourced and traceable back to the farmer who produced it. You can download our blend fact sheets for each of our coffees and these tell you about the flavour profile as well as the exact origin of the beans, down to the estate it was grown on. Our beans are roasted with multi award winning technology which results in low carbon emissions and zero waste. We couldn't ask for more than that.
When you buy from Maverick, you can be confident that your coffee is:
- Ethically sourced
- Roasted with award winning technology
Our packaging is LDPE4 and is 100% recyclable in the UK.
We spent a lot of time researching the bet coffee bags on the market, and in an ideal world, we would have gone for a fully compostable or biodegradable option. But in truth, these kinds of bags just don't keep the coffee fresh enough and we didn't want to compromise on the quality of our coffee. So in the end, we took the decision to move away from aluminium linings which are a big pollutant, and also away from single-use plastic. Our new bags are the most eco-friendly option available to us on the market right now, and we are really pleased with them. They are LDPE4 which is 100% plastic (no aluminium) and means they can go into your normal household recycling if your council accepts soft plastics (like bread bags). If they don't, then simply take your coffee bags to your local supermarket and drop them off in their plastic carrier bag bins or take them to an organisation like Terracycle where they will be gratefully received.
Doing our bit to give back
We're a proud reforestation partner of One Tree Planted. When you buy our coffee, you can choose to donate less than £1 which we'll send straight to One Tree Planted. They then use your money to get trees planted in the ground in these locations across the globe:
- North America
- Latin America
- The Pacific
Our refillable eco-tubes are made from cardboard with a foil lining to keep the tea fresh.
in 2021 we launched our new range of Maverick Tea. Our unique blends use only the finest ingredients and contains leaves and fruit that smells as incredible as it tastes. Our tea bags are made from Soilon which is a mesh made from poly lactic acid (PLA). PLA is derived from starches by an enzyme and polymerisation. We chose Soilon for our teabags as it can be readily broken down by microorganisms in the soil, and it also doesn’t release any micro-plastics into your mug.
